Bat Craft

We have been having a lot of fun with our Halloween theme. To go along with the Bats Are Sleeping song I mentioned in the Halloween Songs post, we learned a bit about bats. We also made this cute bat craft.

This was a very easy craft, and the bats look so festive hanging around! I didn’t get a lot of pictures, but you can see a full tutorial and the adorable finished egg carton bats at Happy Clippings.

First I cut apart an egg carton using three sections for each bat. I cut the edges to resemble bat wings. Then I set the kids up to paint.

Tinker dropped everything and ran to her seat to paint! She loves painting.

After the paint dried we added googly eyes using tacky glue. I poked a hole in the middle, pulled a loop of ribbon through, and hung them up. That’s it! We love how they looking hanging from our cupboards…even the spooky bat shadow behind them!
