Make a Paper Bag Cat

Paper Bag Cat

You can make a grey cat like the one in the picture or use different colors for an orange, brown, tan or black cat.

You will need:

  • two sheets of A4 paper
  • paint in the color you’re making your kitty
  • a printer
  • some crayons
  • scissors
  • glue
  • paper for the printer


  • big wiggly eyes

Then you’ll need to print, cut out and colour the template pieces shown below.

  • Glue your two pieces of paper together around the edges, but leaving the bottom edge free so you can put your hand inside. Paint and let dry.
  • Glue the muzzle onto the top of the bag .It should overlap the body a bit.
  • Glue the nose onto the head.It should overlap the muzzle a bit.
  • Glue the eyes onto the head above the nose.  If you like, you can use wiggly eyes instead of the paper template pieces.
  • Glue the ears onto the sides of the head
  • Glue the tongue underneath the flippy tab so you can see part of the circle sticking out from under the muzzle.
  • Glue three whiskers (long, thin rectangle pieces) onto either side of the muzzle.
  • Glue the tummy onto the body.
  • Glue the arms onto the side but stick then on the back of the bag.
  • Glue the tail onto the back.
