Boom, Snot, and Twitty are three friends who love to be together but usually do things very differently! In This Way That Way, these friends are at it again, but this time they need to find the perfect beach spot. Read the book to see what happens next, then create a new friend for the trio with this paper craft for kids.
Use the instructions and printable tracing templates included to help your child make their own animal friend step by step.
Choose from a bear, fox, squirrel, or rabbit—or make them all!
Start with a few simple supplies!
- Colored craft paper
- Craft glue
- Black marker
This paper craft for kids is perfect for preschoolers ready to practice their cutting and gluing skills, as well as older elementary school children!
Let’s start by making the paper fox—the rest of the animals can be made following the same process.
Trace the template patterns on the selected colored papers. Cut out the traced patterns with scissors.
Glue the inner ear patterns (2 small triangular pieces) on the ear parts of the fox’s head pattern and glue the heart shaped piece on the bottom side of the head. Glue the small pattern of the tail on the tip of the big tail pattern.
Prepare a paper bag using an 8 inches × 8 inches orange colored craft paper or any colored craft paper you prefer for the fox.
You can also use a sheet of paper if you don’t want to make a paper bag fox.
Attach the belly pattern of the fox below the head (on the middle part of the bag or paper sheet).
Attach the head pattern of the fox on the top side of the bag, keeping half of the head outside the bag’s top end.
Attach the tail on either side of the bag, in between the side folds of the bag.
Use a black sharpie to draw the eyes and nose of the fox. Try making a paper craft bear, rabbit, or squirrel next!
