Craft Corner: Autumn Leaf Man & Fall Fox

🍂 Cool Craft for Autumn (or Any Time!)

By Kathryn Fisher, Publisher, Macaroni Kid Bowie/Crofton November 8, 2016

This is such an easy craft and was perfect for my daughter and I to do together on a rainy fall day last week. The supplies are easy to find in most retails stores too.

What makes this craft even better is that it's two crafts in one. You can make the Leaf Man and/or the Fall Fox using the exact same supplies! 

What You Need:

  • Fake fall Leaves
  • Craft Sticks
  • Googly eyes (small)
  • Craft Glue (quick-drying works best with toddlers)
  • Markers

What You Do:

  1. Gather the supplies.
  2. Holding the leaf upright for the Leaf Man or upside down for the Fall Fox, glue it onto the top of the craft stick. Make sure that at least half of the leaf's height is on the stick — you want it to be able to support the weight of the googly eyes. Let dry.
  3. Once dry, attach the googly eyes using a tiny bit of glue. Glue the fox's eyes closer together to give it that fox "look." Let dry.
  4. Draw the rest of the Leaf Man's face and Fall Fox's features using markers.
  5. Decorate the stick with the markers (optional).

Now that you are done, put on a puppet show with the kids!
