Pipe Cleaner Cat Tails

Easy Arts & Crafts Activity with Little Kids

My son’s favorite animal is always cats. We had some pipe cleaners and a cardboard box at home, so we made this activity.

What you need

  • Cardboard box
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Sharpies or markers
  • A small screwdriver or ice pick

  1. Just draw a bunch of cats on the cardboard box with sharpies or markers. Hanging out cat, stretching cat, having a birthday cat, etc…. any kind! Your kids draw too! (My son didn’t like drawing back then.)
  2. Use a small screwdriver or ice pick, then carefully make a hole for the tail on each cat. (**Please be careful! Let the grownup do this part!!)
  3. Push pipe cleaners in each hole and make a small knot on the back, so that it doesn’t come out.
  4. Make a shape of each cat tail and voila!
