Kitty Cat Nose

Kitty Cat Nose

This craft is really the cat's meow... There are so many fun uses for an egg carton in art-- this project may be the most darling! An egg carton becomes an adorable little cat nose with pipe-cleaner whiskers. (A kitty cat was my daughter's animal of choice--however, this craft could also be adapted to make bunny or puppy snouts, too!)

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. egg carton
  2. paint
  3. buttons
  4. glue
  5. pipe cleaners (1)
  6. hole punch
  1. First, cut or tear off an individual egg piece from the egg carton.

  2. Next punch two holes in each side of the nose. After you have all four holes, your child can paint it their color of choice.

  3. Once the paint is dry, glue on a button to make the perfect little kitty nose.

  4. Cut the pipe cleaner in half and have your child thread and twist a half on each side for the whiskers. Tie a piece of yarn through one hole on each side. This will be the tie that goes around your child's head to hold the nose in place.

  5. Our kitty nose is now ready to be worn. My daughter loved pretending she was a cat all afternoon with her new kitty nose. This project is great for a costume--or just a fun afternoon of pretend play!
