Kindergarten cat hat

In kindergarten classes we are reading cat books of all kinds...Pete the cat, & bad kitty seem to be the favorites. students created a 3-D cat"hat". Some used the paper cat sculptures as puppets, or just pals to set next to them on the tables. 
This is always a fun project, but does require a little prep work on the teachers end. I pre-draw white lines for the body, tail, feet, & head. Students decorate their cat using construction paper crayons & metallic crayons & then practice those cutting skills! 
I prefer to staple the cat together & can do it pretty quick as students complete their cutting. They can glue pieces instead of stapling but with staples there's no drying time.
