Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Gather the supplies needed for this project:
- A piece of orange construction paper
- A ruler
- A black marker
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!
