Do you remember that catchy song, “what did the fox say”? I decided to create a build-a-fox craft for kids so that you can play that song and enjoy some quality time together. Having preschool crafts in the house is an excellent way to make learning fun and to engage your kids with a simple preschool craft.
Building these cute preschool crafts with your kids is an excellent way to pass the time when you’re home with preschoolers. I enjoy providing parents with craft ideas for kids that create a minimal mess and inspire your preschool and kindergarten kids to use their imagination.

Ideas for Easy Build-a-Fox Craft for Kids
Not sure what to use this adorable simple preschooler craft for? Here are some easy ideas to entertain your kids using this preschool template build-a-fox craft for kids:
– Gather up your supplies for your build-a-fox craft for kids, tune into a virtual zoo tour and enjoy learning more about foxes and other animals from home.
After the virtual zoo tour is complete, let your preschooler share what they learned using their build-a-fox preschool craft as the ‘speaker’.
– Read Dr. Seuss’s Fox in Socks book together after you’ve created this adorable build-a-fox craft for kids.
Using the white template for the build-a-fox craft you can have your kids color socks on their fox craft creation.
– Watch a documentary about foxes, and find out what a fox eats. You can then enjoy eating fruits and berries with your kids as you learn that the red fox east mostly berries and fruits.
This is a fun way to engage your kids beyond this simple craft for kids and start learning more about nature. Maybe your picky eater will try some fruits and berries now that they know the beautiful red fox enjoys them.
– You can easily use this art project as one step closer to creating a puppet show. You can use my other preschool template crafts to have various characters in the puppet show.
You’ll need craft sticks to glue or tape on the backside of your build-a-fox and other crafts so that your preschoolers can put on their own puppet show for you.

If you have decided to go with the black and white version, be sure to color your fox template first and then cut out. Makes it easier to work with, plus it’s less marker mess on the table with your young ones.
After you have cut out all of the shapes from your free printable fox template, glue on his face first. Starting with his adorable eyes.
Next, glue on his ears. We are all about learning in whatever craft we do. So you’ll notice the different shapes of his face are the perfect teaching opportunity with your young learners too! Teach how the eyes are the shape of a circle and the years the shape of a heart.
After your fox craft’s face is complete, next comes the body. With a little glue on the top of the fox’s body, affix his adorable head.
Finally comes the tail and the feet and he is complete!
