Cat in the Hat Craft

When you hear the Cat in the Hat you automatically think Dr. Seuss. At least I do, it’s one of my most beloved books from my childhood and of my kids too.

With National Read Across America Day coming up, as well as Dr. Seuss Day (better known as Dr. Seuss’ Birthday) I wanted to offer you a series of Dr. Seuss crafts. With a cookie recipe in there for good measure!

Keep an eye out for Thing 1 and Thing 2 sugar cookies recipe, Truffula Tree craft, Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish craft, and Horton Hears a Who Craft as well!

Read on for the full step-by-step guide for the Cat in the Hat craft.

Coloured paper cut out in the template shapes for the Cat in the Hat.

Step 1:

Select red, black and white cardstock papers for this craft. Trace the shapes from the given template, on the selected cardstock papers.

Making the Cat in the Hat's hat. With white and red stripes.

Step 2:

Take the rectangle and the 4 strip cutouts; these are the patterns for the hat. Stick the 3 red strips on the rectangle cutout, keeping an even distance between each strip, on the rectangle.

The brim of the hat is attached to the rest of the hat.

Step 3:

Now stick the longer strip cut out on either side (width) of the rectangle to complete the hat pattern.

A white circle is pasted onto a black circle and the Cat in the Hat's ears and bow tie are being assembled.

Step 4:

Grab the 2 round cutouts along with the rest of the cutouts. Stick the small round shape on the middle of the big round shape (this will be the head of the cat).

White and black circles are glued, the ears and red bow tie is attached.

Step 5:

Stick the 2 (relatively smaller triangles, which are the ears of the cat) on the top side of the head (round shapes). Glue the pointy sides of the 2 other triangles on the small round shape to make a bow pattern. Stick the bow on the bottom side of the head.

Attach the Cat in the Hat's hat to his head.

Step 6:

Take the cardstock hat from step 3 and stick it on the top side of the head pattern. Make sure that the ears (triangles) are popped out of the hat.

Cat in the Hat's face is drawn on with a black pen.

Step 7:

Use a black sharpie or black gel pen to draw the face of the cat.

Knows a lot about that, right?

With this craft, your kids or students can have their own wild adventures with the Cat in the Hat.

Mimi loved making this craft because she is the Cat in the Hat’s biggest fan. I looked high and low (mind you this was in 2010) to find this Cat in the Hat plush. She begged and begged for it and I finally found it. So, this craft has a soft spot for me!
