Pipe Cleaner Cat Tails

Pipe Cleaner Cat Tails - Activities you can do with kids at home
My son’s favorite animal is always cats. Maybe because we have cats at home before he was born. We had some pipe cleaners and a cardboard box, so I made this activity. (We enjoyed this activity in 2015)

What you need

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

 

Pipe Cleaner Cat Tails - Activities you can do with kids at home

  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!
