It’s Halloween and the cats are coming out to play! This adorable Halloween Blac Cat Craft for kids will have them howling with the rest of the trick or treaters! Your cat also happens to be cold roaming the streets so why not weave him a warm and cozy wool sweater? Kids will love practicing their fine motor skills and stitching by weaving yarn through the loops to make their black cat a warm sweater!

This adorable cat craft was inspired by my friend Kati from her Instagram @mavalina.de where she made a llmaa version! Make sure to check her version out!

What do you need to make this Black Cat Craft?

We love recycled crafts and cardboard projects are some of the easiest around! You’ll need our simple cat template. Or just trace out your own easy peasy! Then you’ll need your favorite black markers, paint or paint sticks to color in the cat black. The face details are made with some paper. And the weaving is just simple yarn! Use your favorite colors and let the kids design a cute sweater for your black cat!

What does this Halloween craft teach kids? 

  • Simple tracing with the template
  • Scissor skills
  • Fine motor with the weaving of the yarn
  • Coloring (also fine motors)

What if my kids are too young to use a needle?

Great question! These days you can buy plastic needles that are blunt and safe for kids. OR you can add tape to the end of your yarn to create a faux needle to weave through the yarn on the cat.
