Black Cat Paper Plate Craft : A preschool Halloween Activity
Halloween is only a few short days away and my little guy and I have been in full crafting mode. One thing I love to work on with my preschooler are fine motor skills. It’s important to work on fine motor skills with little ones because it allows them fine tune their muscles getting them ready for all the big kid stuff they’ll be doing in the future.
That’s why I love this Black Cat Paper Plate Craft. It makes your little one work on all their fine motor skills in one fun Halloween Activity.
In this activity they’ll be:
And most important having fun!
Making this a trifecta of fine motor skill fun.

What you’ll need to make a Black Cat Paper Plate Craft
Black Construction paper
Pink Construction paper
Yarn or pipe cleaners (Any color really but we chose pink)
How to make a Black Cat Paper Plate Craft
- To begin cut out 2 black + 2 Pink triangles for the ears.
- Cut out a bunch of squares out of the black construction paper.
3.Glue the black squares to the plate. What I love is that there’s really no rhyme or reason to how your preschooler will glue them on. That is what makes this so fantastic!
4. Once the whole plate is pretty much filled with black squares have them glue the ears, eyes and whiskers.
