If you have already started your Halloween crafting with kids, here is a cute idea that I’m sure you will like: a black cat paper craft. It is as simple as a paper craft can be especially as this one also comes with a template. Of course you can draw your own cat and go from there. But if you are busy and have no time for drawing, the template will make the craft feel super easy.
