Make your own spooky bats to decorate your house at Halloween
You will need:
- A4 White paper
- A4 Black card/sugar paper
- Wiggly eyes
- PVA glue
- Hole punch
Optional extension materials (see below if required):
- Clothes peg
- Double sided tape
All items are available at the Creation Station Store
Using the white A4 paper print out or draw the template of the bat and cut it out.
(If you are drawing it by hand a great way to make sure both sides are the same is to fold a piece of A4 white paper in half like a book and draw half of the bat using the fold as the centre of the bat. Using the scissors cut out this shape and when you open out the piece of paper you will have a complete bat.)
Download the Bat Template
Place the template onto your black card or paper and draw around it. Using your scissors cut out your bat. You may have to use your super senses to see the pencil line.
You can then decorate with wiggly eyes. Using the hole punch add a hole at the bottom of its body and tie a piece of wool or string through the hole. You can make this whatever length you want depending on where you are hanging your bat.
Step 4 (Optional)
If you want you can decorate your bat to make it even spookier! You could use PVA glue and sprinkle on some glitter or print different patterns or even paint on some vampire fangs!
Your bat is now finished, using an adults help hang the bat in your house or outside your front door ready to scare your friends.
How many bats will you make? Will you try and make them big and small? Try hiding them high and low and see if your friends find them all.
