Introduction: Fox Origami

This Fox Origami is a fun activity to do with your kids, or to decorate a class room or a home for halloween.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Gather the supplies needed for this project:

  • A piece of orange construction paper
  • A ruler
  • A black marker
  • Scissors

Step 2: Get Set Up

Place the materials on the table in front of you.

Step 3: Measure the Paper

Hold the construction paper up vertically in front of you and use the ruler to measure three inches down from the top.

Step 4: Turn Paper Into a Square

Fold the top 3 inches of the construction paper down, creating a flap.

Step 5: Cut the Paper

Grab your scissors and cut off the 3 inch flap, making the paper into a square. Once the paper is cut, throw the flap away.

Step 6: Fold the Paper

Fold the square in half to form a triangle.

Step 7: Fold the Paper Again

Fold the triangle again to form a right triangle.

Step 8: Unfold the Paper

Unfold the right triangle back so that the paper goes back into the original triangle.

Step 9: Fold the Paper Twice More

Fold the left and the right sides of the orange paper towards the center crease of the paper forming two more triangles. Leave a small amount of space between the folds so they are not completely touching.

Step 10: Turn the Paper Around

Turn the figure around so that the triangular flaps are facing away from you and towards the table.

Step 11: Draw the Eyes

Draw two thinly curved half circles that face downwards on each side of the crease in the middle of the large triangle.

Step 12: Draw the Nose

Draw a half circle on the tip of the big triangle and color it in.

Step 13: Enjoy Your Fox

Clean up your area and enjoy your fox!
