Bat craft

Sharing is caring!

After we were done with our shape bats, we thought of creating another easy bat craft that would make a fun Halloween decoration for home or the classroom. Punch a whole at the bottom of the bat, thread a black yarn strand and hang it upside down from the ceiling.

It’s an easy craft to make with preschoolers, kindergartners or older kids. They will get to practice their scissors cutting skills and fine motor skills when putting the bat together.

We love Halloween crafts and last year we focused on creating a fun paper cup Halloween character series. This year we want to come up with paper craft ideas.

HOW TO MAKE A BAT CRAFT

The bat template comes with two versions:

1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.

STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR HOME CRAFTING

Print the home template, cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.

Use a black marker to draw the details on the inner wings and ears.

To make the bat, you will need: 1 black body, 2 black outer ears, 2 gray inner ears, 2 black outer wings, 2 gray inner wings, 2 eyes, 1 red mouth, 2 white fangs and 2 gray cheeks.
