I’m trying to think of all things spring these days, but we are currently in the midst of negative degree wind chills. It’s winter’s way of saying we’re not done yet. Since winter isn’t done yet, then the winter crafts aren’t done yet, either. And I have to say this Handprint Arctic Fox Craft is such a cute keepsake, it kinda makes the cold weather worth it.

To make our Handprint Arctic Fox Craft you will need white and black cardstock, medium googly eyes, markers in black, white, and silver, a glue stick, and scissors. Of course, you will also need a little hand to trace, too.
Handprint Arctic Fox Craft
- Cardstock – white, black
- Markers – black, silver, white
- Googly eyes, medium size
- Glue stick
Begin by tracing around a little hand on white cardstock.
Cut the handprint out. You could also try this with white paint instead, but I usually try as best I can to keep the mess at a minimum.
From the same white cardstock, you will also need to cut out a larger triangle as well as 2 smaller triangles.
Use the black marker to make a rounded edge across the nose of the triangle and color in. Color the inside of the smaller triangles with the silver marker.
Glue the smaller triangles to the top of the larger triangle.
Now, glue the handprint to the black cardstock, fingers down. Glue the face triangle to the side without the thumb. The thumb acts as the tail. Glue on googly eyes.
Finally, use the white marker to make dots and small asterisks for snowflakes across the page.
Now that’s a fun way of making the most of winter!
