HOW TO MAKE A SHAPE bat CRAFT
The shape bat template comes with two versions:
1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on appropriate 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.
To make the shape bats, each student will need: 1 black bat, 2 black ears, 2 black wings, 2 eyes, 1 red mouth and 2 white fangs.
Start by cutting out all the shapes.
Glue the ears onto the bats.
Glue the eyes onto the bats.
