In case you didn’t know, my family and I love animals, especially cats. In our house, we have four female cats ranging in age from one year old to 13 years old. They each have their adorable quirks and unique personalities. We swear one of them is more like a dog than a cat. They bring us so much happiness and we wouldn’t trade them for anything!
When I came across a video called “Cat Vs Bear”, I thought “Oh, no. I don’t want to watch a poor cat get eaten by a bear.” Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised.
Apparently, cats hold their ground really well against black bears. Most black bears would rather flee than fight something that is small and not really worth the time to eat. Overall, they are pretty timid creatures. Of course, I wouldn’t want to come across a black bear while they are eating or a mother with her cubs. I’m sure that story would end differently.
My son thought it was funny that such a big, aggressive creature would be scared of a sweet cat. So now bears are lovingly called scaredy bears.
One day when he was bored, I decided to make an Easy No-Sew Sock Halloween Cat with him. I even had the perfect snack to eat while making them, TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks that I got from Walmart! I just had to keep with the Cat vs. Bear theme. Plus we can’t wait for Halloween!
TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks are different than your typical cookie snack. There’s none of that fake stuff (high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors and colors) in them. Just real ingredients like milk, eggs, and chocolate made into a cute bear-shaped snack.
We thought they were absolutely adorable! And we especially liked the vanilla filling!!
They were the perfect snack to eat while making Easy No-Sew Sock Halloween Cats.
Easy No-Sew Sock Halloween Cats
DIY No-Sew Sock Halloween Cats Craft for kids and grownups. Makes a great Halloween decoration or a fun DIY gift.
What You Need
- black socks
- rubber bands
- small buttons or googly eyes
- paint markers
- glue gun
Put It Together
Fill a black sock with rice. Once you think it is filled enough, cut off the remainder of the sock and tie with a rubber band.
Using another rubber band, portion off a section of the top half to make the head.
To cover the rubber band on the head, use felt to make a witch hat. With a small bowl, mark off half a circle on a piece of felt and cut it out. Roll into a cone shape and secure with hot glue.
Place the cone circle on another piece of felt and draw an outer circle to form the brim of the hat. Also, trace the cone circle. It should look like a small circle inside a larger circle when you are finished.
Cut out the inner circle and slide the brim over the cone to form a hat. Secure with hot glue.
Using a piece of gold felt, form a hat buckle and secure to the witch’s hat with a thin piece of ribbon.
Cut out small triangles of black and pink felt to form the ears. Secure with hot glue.
Roll a piece of the extra sock to form a tail. Secure to the side and back with hot glue.
From here you can get creative with how you want your cat to look. I used buttons for the eyes, tied a ribbon around his neck, and drew on his face with a paint marker.
My son just adores our Easy No-Sew Sock Halloween Cats. So much, in fact, we had to take him for a walk to the playground. Where we, OF COURSE, had to take our TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks too.
TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks are such a fun and portable on the go snack. I love that I can just toss them in a bag and I have a quick delicious treat that can be eaten anywhere.
It looks like the cat won again! TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks are SO cute and fun but they HAVE to be eaten. You can find these kid loved and mom approved TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks at Walmart in the Cookie/Cracker aisle.
