How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Fox Craft
To make this paper fox craft for kids, start by wrapping the body piece around the empty toilet paper roll.
Glue the ends down to secure it.
Now, press the center of the top of the toilet paper roll down. Press the corners up to form the fox’s ears.
Glue the fox’s chest to the bottom center of the toilet paper roll.
For the eyes, you can use the included eye template pieces.
But if kids find those too small to cut, you can simply use the eye outlines and let them draw the eyes on with markers.
Glue the eyes onto the top of the fox – just under the ears.
Find the point where the eyes meet in the center and glue the fox’s nose there.
Now it’s time to add the legs and tail!
Start by gluing the brown feet onto the bottom of the leg pieces. Then glue the tufted tail onto the end of the tail piece.
Place one of the fox’s legs on either side of the chest. Glue them in place.
Make sure the brown feet are pointing downward.
Finally, use the glue stick to add the tail to the bottom of the fox.
Make sure to glue it on the backside and angle it upward so that the tail points up when seen from the front.
And we’re done!
Try a few other colors to make a family of foxes!
