Arctic Fox Paper Plate Craft

Arctic Fox Paper Plate Craft

I love making crafts with my kiddos using supplies that I have around the house. One of my favorite mediums is paper plates, which are cheap and easy to come by. For one of our recent winter crafts, my daughter and I made a simple but adorable arctic fox.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Fold one paper plate in half.
  2. Cut a triangle from another paper plate.
  3. Cut four rectangle legs, two triangle ears, and one half circle tail from the white paper.
  4. Glue the two triangle ears to the top back of the triangle paper plate head.
  5. Glue two wiggle eyes and the pink pompom nose to the front of the head.
  6. Glue the four legs and tail to the inside of the folded paper plate.
  7. Glue the paper plate closed.
  8. Glue the head to the front of the folded paper plate opposite the tail.
  9. Use binder clips to secure the folded paper plate and head while the glue dries.
  10. Glue cotton balls all over the body, head, and tail of the fox.
  11. Display the arctic fox paper plate craft.

    This is very cute. We’re having a rainy day at home today so I think we’ll give this a try.
