Food crafts are always so much fun for kids of all ages, especially when they’re easy to assemble, and don’t require a lot of prep work! If your child loves cats, these easy cat cookies will be an instant hit!

How to Make These Easy Cat Cookies!

While you can bake your own sugar cookies and use Nutella or a simple cream cheese frosting to coat the surface of your cookies, you can always take the easy route-

store-bought cookies!


What you will need:

I’m partial to McVities Chocolate Digestive Cookies

(Or you can any sandwich cookies. The cream in between holds the ‘whiskers’ well.)

Pretzel sticks

Mini M&Ms

Chocolate Chips (Optional)

A Knife

Instructions to Make These Easy-Peasy Cat Cookies:

1. Break (or cut with a knife) 3  pretzel sticks in half.

Arrange these to make your cat’s whiskers on his chocolate McVities cookie face. 


2. Gently use the M&Ms to make your cat’s eyes and nose.

You can also use chocolate chips for the eyes, if preferred.


3. Cut triangle shapes from a second cookie. 

Gently press the same onto the chocolate surface to make your cat’s ears.


You won’t need to use frosting or peanut butter to attach the pretzel sticks, M&Ms and ears because the chocolate coating on the cookie acts like a gluing agent.

How cute is this little chocolate kitty?

Remember, with any food craft your child makes, perfection is not the goal.

Allow your child to be as creative as they desire…

even if it means a cat looks more like an abstract art cat when your toddler tries her hand at the same!

This would definitely make the purr-fect addition to a cat-themed party for kids.
