Create a fun and simple craft with your kiddos that cost next to nothing by using some fall leaves to make cute foxes.
I love getting outdoors with my girls and going for walks in nature. This time of year is perfect to have your kids collect some leaves that they can use to make some really cute art work and enjoy the outdoors at the same time. There are so many things that you can make with leaves… the possibilities are endless. Here’s a craft idea to make a really ADORable Fox Leaf Art piece with your kids. You will love how simple this project is and it honestly doesn’t require a whole lot of supplies. Let’s get started and see just how easy this project is!
- Variety of Orange or Yellow Leaves
- Dark Colored Leaves For the Ears
- Googly Eyes or Sharpie Marker
Step 1: I learned from experience that it’s best to press the leaves for at least a day. This way when you glue the foxes to the paper, the leaves won’t curl up and make your foxes look funny.
Step 2: Cut the stem off the leaf that will be used as the foxes face. Cut out triangle shapes for the ears. My daughter cut the ends of the dark leaves for this. Cut a triangle for the nose. Glue all of this onto your main leaf.
Step 3: Glue on the googly eyes.
Step 4: Glue all of your foxes to your paper or papers.
My daughter thought these were so fun to make that she made several of them.
I love how each one takes on a different personality… the googly eyes make me laugh.
This fox was my daughter’s favorite. It makes me laugh…thinking this fox must have of had a rough day. I need to keep this one around for when I have a bad day so I’ll be sure to giggle. 🙂
These really are the cutest. If you don’t have any googly eyes, just use a piece of white paper and a black marker as a substitute. I promise your kids will love these and you will just as much too. They will bring a smile to your face.
