Craft Idea: Leaf Foxes

Originally published on 21st October 2016, updated 13th October 2021.

October's Bostik Blogger craft box has a Bonfire Night theme and we were sent lots of fab craft materials to come up with a simple craft tutorial. I knew that most of the other bloggers would be coming up with firework-related crafts, so we came up with something a little different! Dry leaves and twigs are used to make bonfires, but the piles often become home to animals sleeping during the day. It's always best to check your pile before lighting your bonfire. Hopefully our craft idea will be a good reminder! If you want to see last month's Halloween craft idea you can find it here.

As you know I like to keep our craft ideas simple enough for the boys to do as they are only 3 and 2. They both got involved with this one!

To make leaf foxes you will need:

- Bostik White Glu
- several leaves - we used fake leaves but you can use real ones too!
- googly eyes
- brown and black felt tip pens

Here's how we made them

- With the leaf pointing downwards, use the Bostik White Glu to attach two googly eyes to each one.
- Use the black pen to colour in a small area at the bottom of the leaf to look like a nose,
- Use the brown pen to colour in two small areas at the top of the leaf to look like ears.
- Your leaf foxes are finished!

Will you make any crafts for Bonfire Night?

With thanks to Bostik for providing the craft materials.
