A HUGE thank you to Amazon Kids for sponsoring today’s Paper Plate Fig The Fox Spring-A-Ling Surprise Kid Craft idea!
Spring is officially here and I’m so excited to share that next Tuesday, April 4, “Spring-a-ling Surprise,” an adorable new springtime special from Amazon’s award-winning children’s series Tumble Leaf, is set to “spring” onto Prime Video for kids and families across the country!
In “Spring-a-ling Surprise,” everyone helps Bloom the bunny hunt for his lost eggs, which he plans to plant for a spectacular spring surprise, while Fig the fox uncovers many other signs of spring along the way!
Created by Drew Hodges (Community, SNL) and executive produced by Hodges and Kelli Bixler (The Roadents) of the award-winning studio Bix Pix Entertainment, Tumble Leaf follows Fig, a small blue fox, who lives in a whimsical land where he discovers adventure, friendship and love around every bend. The series reinforces the importance of learning through play, as it helps children understand the world around them. Tumble Leaf features the voice talent of Christopher Downs as Fig, Brooke Wolloff as Maple, Zac McDowell as Hedge, Addie Zintel as Pine, and Alex Trugman as Ginkgo.
Featuring lush worlds and playful stop-motion animation, Tumble Leaf has garnered multiple Daytime Emmy Awards, including for Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Animated Program. The show has also earned the Jury Award for a TV series at the 2014 Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the 2015 Annie Award for Best General Audience Animated TV/Broadcast Production for Preschool Children and a 2015 Parents’ Choice Gold Award.
To celebrate the NEW upcoming special and the start of spring, today I’m sharing an AWESOME Paper Plate Fig The Fox kid craft idea that is PERFECT to make with your child in honor of “Spring-a-ling Surprise.”

Fig The Fox Craft Supplies:
* Large Paper Plate
* Dark Blue Craft Paint
* Paint Brush
* School Glue
* Dark Blue/Light Blue/White/Black Cardstock
* First grab your paper plate, craft paint and paint brush. Have children paint the paper plate completely blue. Once done, set aside to let it dry completely.
* While that is drying, grab your cardstock. Using my picture as an example, cut out ears, a nose, mouth, eyes etc. for your craft piece.
* To finish off the Paper Plate Fig The Box Friend – have children glue/staple on their paper pieces in place, as well as adding any other embellishments you see fit. Once done, set aside to let it dry completely before displaying proudly!
Super fun, right?! I hope our simple kid craft idea inspires you not only to check out the series BUT also get crafty with your child today!!!
