You only need a bit of imagination to turn ordinary leaves into wonderful arty creations, even more if you add a splash of color.
These leaf foxes can be made in no time and as they really are a frugal project they make a wonderful kindergarten classroom project (and just imagine a leaf fox bulletin board).

How to Make a Fox Leaf Craft
What you need:
- leaves – maple leaf
- orange, white and black paint
- large googly eyes
- paint brushes
Step by Step Tutorial
Gather the leaves. Make sure they are completely dry – if not store them between layers of paper and place a heavy object (book) on top and leave them dry for a few days.
They need to be completely dry or they will curl up later.
Paint the leaves with orange paint.
You can leave the orange paint to dry completely if you want a “sharp” white color next, or just move on with the white paint to get a “softer” tone.
Paint the sides white, making two loops.
Paint a black snout.
Stick on two large googly eyes.
