Egyptian cat

I made a Bastet cat on Saturday while I was waiting for the snow to come.

I made the body of card, shaped into tubes, and his head out of a ball of newspaper.

Then I covered it in newspaper and glue, then painted it when it was dry.

  15. Hi Caden,

    Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of cats, we were learning about Ancient Egypt last term. It says posted in Egypt because it is a category on our blog, we organise our posts into categories to make it easier to search. If you select Egypt from the category menu, you will see lots more of our Egyptian work. We went to a museum and made a mummy!

    Thanks for your comment!
    Mr Brown

  18. Hi this is Niall

    Really glad you liked it. It took me 2 days to make it, as I had to leave the newspaper and glue to dry. Then I had to paint it 3 times.

  19. Hello Quincy
    The Bastet Cat is the Egyptian Goddess of Cats. We were learning about Egypt in school before Christmas.

  20. Thank you. I made it using 3 different tubes, made from card. Then i made its head from rolled up newspaper. I covered it all in newspaper and glue and left it to dry. Then i painted it using blue and green paint. I used pipe cleaners for the whiskers, and found some rings to put in its nose and ear. If you need some help to make it let me know.

  21. First i made 3 tubes out of card. Then I rolled up some newspaper into a ball to make its head. I cut out some shapes for ears and stuck them on. I rolled up some newspaper into a sausage shape for the tail. Then I covered it all in newspaper and glue and left it to dry. Then I painted it with blue and green paint mixed together. I used pipe cleaners for its whiskers and found some rings to put iin its nose and ear. I painted the ears and the nose in black paint. My mum helped me paint the Egyptian eye symbol that i
    stuck on the front with a gold pipe cleaner. If you need some more help please let me know.

  22. Thank you . The Bastet Cat is the Egyptian Goddess of Cats. It wasn’t hard to make but took 2 days as I had to leave the newspaper and glue to dry and then I paint it 3 times and leave to dry.
