Peekaboo, we see you! If you have a Peekaboo Cat and Halloween fan at home, we have a fun stencil craft to mark the season in Peekaboo fashion.
Stamping crafts are a great way to get preschoolers started with crafts as they develop fine motor skills. They can focus on one simple action and the results are immediate. For older children, practice this beautiful color gradient effect with the paint and talk to students about colors and color mixing.
Peekaboo, we see you are ready to get started! Let’s go!
Things you’ll need
- Printed resource sheet
- Black construction paper
- Orange and yellow craft paint
- Round sponge
- Glue stick
- Paper plate
First, print and cut out Peekaboo Cat from your resource sheet. Cut out all of the little pieces and set them aside for later.
Next, tape your Peekaboo Cat silhouette to the black construction paper. This will keep it from moving as you dab around it with your sponge.
Prepare your orange and yellow craft paint on a paper plate.
Now it’s time to paint! Dip your sponge dabber in the orange and yellow paint and stamp down on the edge of Peekaboo Cat. Stamp outwards to the edge of the paper, making a spooky Halloween cloud around your kitty.
Once dry, peel the Peekaboo Cat stencil away to reveal your cat shape.
Glue the eyes, inner ears, paw prints, nose, and mouth in place.
Be sure to get in the spirit with Peekaboo Halloween!
