10 Craft Ideas To Do With Pete The Cat Coloring Pages

Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Dioramas

Have your kids make cute Pete the Cat dioramas with a cardboard box, glue, and scissors.

You’re going to need a cardboard box that’s big enough to fit the print-outs, or you can shrink them down to fit the box you have. 

Have your kids color in just the figure(s) and cut them out, leaving about an inch of paper below the bottom of the character.

Next, you’re going to put the box on its side so that the opening faces out, and you can decorate the box’s interior. Let the illustration you choose guide how you decorate.

Then you’re going to fold the little tab of paper beneath the figures and use that to glue them into place inside the box.


There are a few ways you can make Pete the Cat bookmarks, starting with just coloring in the figure you want and cutting him out.

You could also reinforce the paper with cardstock so that the bookmark is much sturdier.

And you could also just use Pete the Cat’s head glued to a rectangle that’s been decorated to look like his yellow shirt, complete with buttons.

8. Keychains

To make Pete the Cat keychains, you’ll need shrink sheet paper and keychain hardware, which you can find online or in craft stores.

You’ll print off the illustration of your kids’ choice onto the shrink sheets and have them color in just the figures with markers.

Then you’ll cut them out, punch a hole where you want the keychain hardware to attach, and bake them off per the shrink sheet’s instructions (which differ, depending on what kind you have).

Next, you’ll wait for the shrink sheet cut-outs to cool completely before attaching the keychain hardware.

7. Paper Plate Pete The Cat

For this craft, you’ll need large paper plates, which you’re going to cut in half and then cut out an arch into each half so that what’s left is about two to three inches thick.

You’ll have your kids color that in blue – and they can get creative, using markers, paints, crayons, or even glitter glue.

Next, you’ll choose a Pete the Cat illustration that features both his head and his tail prominently – I recommend Pete the Cat Riding a Skateboard or Pete the Cat at School.

Have your kids color those in and cut them out. Then they’re going to glue the head and tail on each side of the paper plate arch.

6. Moving Limbs Pete The Cat

You’ll use the Pete the Cat Toy coloring page for this craft. Get your kid to color in Pete, cut him out, and then cut apart his legs and arms.

You’ll use fasteners to pin the pieces back together, which will then let the legs and arms move.

You can poke two holes at the top of his head and tie off some string so that your creation can be hung up.

5. Headbands

To make Pete the Cat headbands, you’ll need to use an illustration that features his face prominently – I recommend the Simple to Color Drawing of Pete the Cat’s Face.

You’ll have your kids color in just his head and cut that out.

While they’re coloring, you can make two-inch strips of construction paper and connect the ends to make loops.

You can use multiple strips, cut them down to size, and fit your kids’ heads if you have to.

Then you’re going to tape, paste or even staple the Pete the Cat head onto the construction paper loop.

This is a great activity for a party or even a classroom!

4. Pete The Cat Tie-Up Laces

Pick an illustration where Pete the Cat’s laces are visible, and have your kids color in the entire sheet.

Then you’re going to have them take plastic yarn needles and black yarn and actually poke holes through the paper, mimicking the lacing of Pete the Cat’s shoes.

3. Play Puppets

To bring Pete the Cat to life as a play puppet, you’re going to have your kids pick which illustration they want and color it in just the central figure(s).

Then they’re going to cut them out and trace them against cardstock. They’ll cut out the outline and paste the two pieces together.

Next, they’ll paste craft sticks to the back of the figures for convenient handling.

If you wanted, you could even make a stage out of a cardboard box and put on theatricals featuring Pete the Cat.

2. Finger Paintings

For the little ones who don’t have eye-hand coordination for markers or colored pencils yet, put down a drop cloth on the kitchen table and get some non-toxic finger paints.

Then print off a few different Pete the Cat illustrations and let the kids go to town.

Hang the finished product on the fridge or wall!

1. Buttoned-Up Pete The Cat

For this cute craft, you’ll need a Pete the Cat illustration where he is sitting or standing upright – I recommend a simple to Color Drawing of Pete the Cat or an easy Pete the Cat coloring picture.

You’ll have your kids color him in as normal, but then where his buttons are, you’re going to have them actually glue real buttons in place!

Finish off the picture by mounting it on a slightly larger piece of construction paper that can serve as a frame.
