First character that pops into my head when I thinks of Dr Seuss’s books is the Cat in the Hat. It’s my favorite. It’s the hat, smile and tricks. Because we can’t have Thing 1 and Thing 2 without the Cat in the Hat, today I’ll share a paper roll Cat in the Hat craft. It’s simple and cute.

Step 1: Begin by covering the top of the paper roll with red construction paper. Make sure that the paper overlaps in the back of the paper roll. Glue the paper to the paper roll.
Step 2: To make the brim, place the paper roll on the red construction paper and trace it around with a pencil on the paper. Trace also another bigger circle. Cut out the two circles. Slide the brim up the paper roll till it reaches the hat. You don’t have to glue it.
Step 3: Cut 2 long stripes of white paper and glue them around the hat to make the red and white stripped hat pattern.
Step 4: Glue the googly eyes under the hat.
Step 5: Cut 2 long and thin stripes of black paper and use them to make the whiskers. Glue the pom pom on top of the whiskers.
Step 6: Use a black marker to draw the mouth.
