Make this forest fox from a cardboard tube.


  • Cardboard Tube (toilet paper roll)
  • Construction Paper (orange & white)
  • Googly Eyes
  • Paint pen or marker
  • Hot Glue


  • Scissors
  • Low Melt Glue tool


    Cut orange paper to fit the tube..

    Glue in place.

    Make a heart shape for the face and glue it near the top of the tube.

    Glue the googly eyes to the wide part of the heart

    Use a marker to draw the nose at the tip of the heart

    Cut small paper triangles for the ears -- if you're feeling fancy, make it two color!

    Glue ears to the top INSIDE part of the roll, just above the eyes.

    Cut a tummy shape and tail shapes, and glue them onto your fox.


With a little patience you can use school glue, but hot glue will set much quicker.
