Cut the Orange paper plate in half. One half forms the body and we can make the ears, face, legs and tail out of the other half. From one half, cut out a triangle that will form the fox’s face. Cut out 4 legs, one tail & 2 small triangles that will form the ears.

Cut out a triangle from the cardstock ( you can use ordinary craft paper too) . Use the paper plate cutout as a template and then make zig zag cuts at the top to form its furry nose. Using glue gun, stick in place. Let dry.

Complete the face of the Fox by sticking a black Pom Pom for its nose, 2 googly eyes and ears. We added cream cardstock for the ears too. Felt would have been nicer, but we didn’t have any.
