What does the fox say? If you decide to incorporate a winter animal theme into your classroom, foxes would fit perfectly. It seems that they tend to make more appearances during the colder months. It is probably because foxes do not hibernate and are looking for shelter to stay warm. One craft that is very easy to make is the leaf fox. You don't need many supplies and they turn out just adorable! If you want to read a book prior to making the craft, try The Winter Fox, by Timothy Knapman or Foxes in the Snow, by Jonathan Emmett. There are also numerous non-fiction books on every species of fox, if you want something educational.
Total Time: 10 minutes
- If you don't want to make your foxes into magnets, glue them to the white card stock. Make sure the longest point is facing down. I found it looks better not to glue the leaves down flat. If you put glue in middle only, the sides stick up making the foxes pop!
- Hot glue two wiggle eyes on each leaf. Cut a pipe cleaner into 2-3 inch pieces. Roll each piece into an round ball and hot glue one to the tip of each leaf.
- If you want leaf fox magnets, cut the magnet strips in half. Place a line of glue on each one and add to the back of the leaves. Then you can display them on the fridge!
