Our Popsicle Stick Fox Craft is easy to make and reminds you of adorable woodland animals.
Last winter I went on a snowshoeing adventure for my first time with my son's class. We were able to track a Red Fox by its footprints and see where it lives. It was a pretty awesome adventure and ever since then it has been my son's favorite animal.
I find it rather neat that a fox can not only live in a cold environment but also in deserts, mountains and grasslands. Foxes can even adapt to human environments, not that I recommend keeping a wild animal for a pet, but it is pretty fantastic.
I recommend making a craft of your child's favorite animal and that way you can learn about it together. I know we had a ton of fun making this Popsicle Stick Fox Craft.
