Pete the Cat is the coolest children’s book character around. He has a fun personality that naturally draws kids in.

Since we love him so much, we decided to create this Pete the Cat headband craft for kids. It’s really easy but captures the essence of Pete.

If you’ve seen the Pete the Cat show on Amazon Prime, then you’ll notice that this craft is based more closely on the design of the new, cartoon Pete.

And side note, if you haven’t watched it with your kids, go do that! It’s such a cute show that parents will actually enjoy letting their kids watch!

Whether you’re making this headband craft with your own kids, with children at daycare, the library, or in the classroom, there’s a headband option that will work for everyone.

Read on below or watch our quick video tutorial to see how we created this Pete the Cat craft. Also be sure to check out all of our fun headband crafts for kids!

The rest of the directions below are for making the craft version of this headband.

Glue the black eye piece to the inner corner of the yellow eye like in the picture below. Then glue the white eye piece to the center of the black piece. Repeat this for both eyes.

Take the completed eyes and glue them to the base of the headband so they’re centered. Next take the small, white nose and glue it below the eyes in the center of the headband.

If you want to give the eyes a little more detail, take a black marker and outline the top rim of each eye.

Take the extender pieces and tape or staple them to each side of the headband base. Wrap it around your child’s head so it fits a little loosely then tape, staple or paperclip it into a full circle.

This is such an easy craft for kids to make! And, if you’re making this with a big group of students, like in a library or classroom setting you can make it super simple by printing off the black and white version for kids to color in.

Have them use markers or crayons to color in their own unique headbands! The one cat on the left of the picture was colored in with these markers.
