It also looks nice up on the bulletin board.

Let paper dry for a few minutes. I get the kids to flap them or use the hair dryer. (An art teacher can never have too many hair dryers!) Then dry brush on a little extra black, you are going for that fur texture.
Cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. Save your scraps for later.
Cut a piece large enough to cover the opening and glue into place.
Add details with the white pencil crayon, whiskers too.
Draw a cat body shape.
You can use the scraps to make the tail.
Glue into place. Be careful not to glue the head to far down the body or it will show thru the mouth.
