Cute Origami Cat


Welcome back to another easy origami for kids! Today we share this super cute and easy origami animal designs – the oh so VERY cute stand up Origami Cat. We have made a simple origami cat before (which of course we still love), but this time we have gone a step cuter with this simple stand up version!

I love this little kitty, as it is still easy but a nice “next” origami project for kids who are getting confident with basic folding techniques, the head is very similar to that of the previous cat (just a couple of tweaks) and there is the easiest of bodies to go with it too. And you don’t even need any glue to hold this together.

I think this little cat origami pattern would look fabulous embellished as a tiger or leopard too! In fact.. I may just do that for you soon…

This is a great post to show how very versatile Paper Crafts can be.. and is the perfect Paper Halloween Craft for kids!

Origami Cat – Materials

  • 2 plain origami paper in desired colours per cat (we used black and rusty orange)
  • Pen for embellishments if you wish

It really IS best to get origami paper for this cat, as origami paper is usually coloured or patterned on one side and white on the other. The white part is perfect for the cat’s mouth! We love using this origami paper:
