Origami Fox Finger Puppets (And 9 Fun Fox books!)

Are foxes the unofficial animals for fall? I'm not sure, but I feel like I see foxes and owls EVERYWHERE. I'm jumping on the trend (late, as usual) with today's fox-themed finger puppets. It's an easy and cute origami project that the kids can play with once they're done crafting. (And keep reading to the end to get a list of our favorite fox-themed books too!)

Materials Needed:



  • Brown origami paper (This is our go-to brand. We love Daiso!)
  • Black Markers (I prefer permanent markers like Sharpies because the color is super pigmented and won't smear once dry.)

How to Fold Fox Finger Puppets:

1. Place your paper so that the white side is up. (This will be the color of the fox's face.)
