MAKE a Fox Leaf Tail 

DIY leaf fox tail for kids -fall leaf fun craft ideasPhoto credit: @unlocking.fun

@unlocking.fun say you simply need leaves, some cardboard (upcycling a paper bag would work too), white paint, and string. To make the fox tail shape, cut the cardboard in the shape you want. Then, paint the tip white, and then glue or tape leaves over the rest of the tail-shaped cardboard. Once it is dried, help your child add a string to the top of the tail and then tie it loosely around your child’s waist.
