I love to make paper bag animal crafts with the kids.
You only need a few supplies (that you probably already have) and they’re a snap to make! Perfect for the not-so-crafty among us.
So, with fall approaching, I thought it would be fun to share an easy paper bag fox craft for kids that literally anyone can make. It’s that easy.
Plus, there are other paper bag woodland animal crafts to make too, including a paper bag bear craft and a paper bag deer craft!
Read on to see how to make these adorable animal crafts and pick up the free printable templates too!

Easy Paper Bag Fox Craft
To make the easy paper bag fox craft, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printable Paper Bag Fox Craft Template
- Paper bag
- Colored paper
- Child-safe scissors
- Glue stick
- Washable black marker
- Clear tape (optional)
Choose the colored paper you want to use to make the fox.
Print the paper bag fox craft template and then cut out the template pieces.
Use the pencil to trace the template shapes onto the colored paper pieces. Cut the traced pieces out.
Glue the inner ear patterns (2 small triangular pieces) on the ear parts of the fox’s head pattern and glue the heart shaped piece on the bottom side of the head.
Glue the small pattern of the tail on the tip of the big tail pattern.
Glue the colored paper you want to use around the outside of the paper bag. Be sure to cover all four sides.
The color of the bag should match the body of the fox.
Glue the circular belly piece of the fox in the bottom center of the paper bag.
Attach the head pattern of the fox on the top side of the bag, keeping half of the head outside the bag’s top end.
Attach the tail on either side of the bag, in between the side folds of the bag.
You may want to add clear tap at the bottom to keep the bag secure.
Use a black marker to draw the eyes and nose of the fox.
And you’re done!
How to Make Paper Bag Woodland Animal Crafts
To make the other paper bag woodland animal crafts, you’ll need the following:
- Printable paper bag bear craft template
- Printable paper bag deer craft template
- The same supplies as used for the paper bag fox craft
Follow the same instructions as for the paper bag fox craft, attaching the belly, head, and ears.
When making the paper bag deer craft, be sure to attach the antlers and add the spots to the center of the forehead.
You could even make an entire family of these paper bag woodland animals!
If you cut out the template pieces in advance, this would be a super fun craft for a kids’ party!
