You will need:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • A4 White paper
  • Pencil
  • A4 Black card/sugar paper
  • Wiggly eyes
  • PVA glue
  • Wool/string
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors

 

Optional extension materials (see below if required):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Glitter
  • Paint
  • Clothes peg
  • Double sided tape

 

All items are available at the Creation Station Store

Step 1 

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.)

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

london EXTRA: Another option is using double sided tape to attach a clothes peg, it can then be used to display your creepy creations.

We would love to see pictures of you making and using your amazing creations so please send photos to art@thecreationstation.co.uk

Slime King!

We booked a Slime Party for our 10 yr old and friends. This party went beyond our expectations; it was superb from start to finish. The host, Mark, could not do enough for us. He was very popular with the kids, extremely knowledgeable in everything slime, made sure everyone had a great time and made the birthday person feel extra special. The little extras, such as party bags, slime and foam clay creation to take home were lovely. And a really special memento for the birthday child to take home to remind them that they had, in Mark's words, "the slime of their lives"! I have recommended The Creation Station to all my friends. Thank you Mark, you were brilliant.

A great interactive session for the kids. Facilitator showed great enthusiasm and made every child feel welcomed. Very affordable too. One recommendation I would have is to maybe explain the science behind how the ingredients bond to make slime as some children were old enough to understand and may have been curious.

I hired Creation Station for my daughter’s 6th birthday party where they made slime and animal masks, they were absolutely brilliant and the children loved it. I had so many enquires from parents for their contact details, would highly recommend. Thank you! See you next year!
