Fox In Socks Craft Notes

When we were making this Dr. Seuss craft, we wanted to make it look as close to the original character as possible.

That meant we needed to make the fox have jagged fur, like in the book. We did this, and love the way it turned out!

But, the one downside was that it meant more detailed cutting which may be difficult for younger children.

Once the template is completely cut out, the rest of the craft is easy peasy. It’s just a few pieces to glue together.

We’d recommend cutting out all the pieces ahead of time if you’re doing this craft with little kids. I always sit down at night after the kids are sleeping, and cut out template pieces while watching a show or something so it never seems long or tedious.

If you’re doing this craft and want the kids to cut out the template pieces, be sure to add more time to the prep phase. We would estimate this cutting for ages 8 and up.
