Teach your little kids all about foxes with this fun F is for Fox Zoo Craft! Your preschoolers will love making this quick & easy kids craft and even building a fox den too! You’re definitely going to want to check it out!
The little guy and I had a great time making this F is for Fox Zoo Craft for the second time. Of course if you’re interested, you can check out our post from the first time we did A to Zoo Animals here.
Just a quick head’s up though, it’s one of those long-winded why process art is so important for little kids type posts, so keep that in mind.
I can’t believe that we wrapped up week 1 and moved on to week 2. If you missed any of them, you can check out all of our zoo crafts here. We’re for sure loving this theme just as much as we did a few years ago.
And I love being able to look back and compare the little guy’s artwork from three years ago to now. He’s definitely grown and changed so much.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
F is for Fox Zoo Craft
What you’ll need
- Wiggle Eyes
- Blankets or Towels
Here’s how to do it
- What parts of you are similar to a fox?
- Cut out a letter F from the paper.
- Encourage children to discuss ways to turn the letter F into a fox.
- Use the leftover paper to cut a tail and/or ears.
- Attach to the letter F.
- Tear napkin and glue on for a bushy tail, then decorate fox as desired.
- Set our blankets and chairs for children to build a fox den.
- Pretend their fox is hiding or sleeping inside.
- Did the child have the fine motor strength to rip the napkin?
- Did he have the visual-motor skill to glue pieces independently?
The little guy started with his letter F and then used the leftover paper to cut out a tail and ears.
He used a glue stick to attach everything and then tore the napkin and used the pieces to make a bushy tail for his fox.
At this point, the little guy loves to make his crafts look just like the example and so he used a black marker to add lots of fun details.
I remember the first time that we did this craft. It was literally just a process art experience for him at that point. He was barely two and was just starting to learn scissor skills, etc.
I put all of the supplies in front of him on a tray and basically told him to have fun with it. He could make the fox look however he wanted it to and I assure you that he did. If you’re interested, you can check it out here.
Either way, whether he’s using the supplies we were sent to create however he chooses or he’s working hard to make something that looks just like the example, the crafts & activities that we do each month coordinate beautifully with our preschool monthly themes.
Don’t forget to stop by next week if you’re interested in seeing more of what we’re up to with our A to Zoo Animals theme. And if you missed this year’s preschool homeschool space post, you can check it out here.
