One thing we have learned while making our preschool alphabet book is that you can make some pretty adorable little animals out of the letters of the alphabet.
I mean, so far we’ve made a crab and a duck, what could be cuter?! Well, I’ll tell you. This letter F fox, that’s what!
Made from the uppercase letter, this adorable little guy fits in perfectly with the rest of our alphabet creatures and he is super easy to make!
To make a fun woodland creature of your own, you’ll need:
- A sheet of white card stock
- Orange, tan, black, and white construction paper
Start by having your child (or doing it yourself if they’re not quite old enough for scissors yet) cut out the uppercase letter F, a pointed shape for the tail, and two triangles for the ears from your orange construction paper.
From your white, black, and tan construction papers, you’ll need to cut out the rest of your pieces. Cut two bigger circles from the white and two smaller circles from the black for the eyes and a rounded triangular shape from the black for the nose (this piece is not pictured as my 4 year old kept running off with it :) ).
From the tan construction paper, cut the tip of the fox’s tail. To make this a little easier, we laid the orange tail on the tan paper and traced around it. Once we cut it out, we shortened it to fit the tip by making a few zigzag cuts.
To create the tail, just take your tan piece and glue it right on top of the orange piece. Try to make sure that the points match up as much as possible.
Once you have your tail made, grab your sheet of white card stock and glue the tail on first. Next, take your letter F and glue that on top of the tail with the bottoms of the two meeting up.
Once you have the eyes made, glue them as well as the ears onto the top of the letter F.
While you’re at it, go ahead and give the little guy a nose as well :)
Finally, finish your fox off with a crayon smile if you want and stick him in your alphabet book right next to the printable uppercase letter F alphabet page.
