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

Fabulous activities! My two children are six and four. Both have special needs and we are always made to feel very welcome by Alex. The events we have attended are always well thought out and planned and the materials provided are of very good quality. Five stars.

My little girl and I have loved our Creation Station sessions! A great opportunity for her to experience messy play to further develop her senses, and to make crafts that we otherwise wouldn’t. A great Disney playlist too! Thanks Sarah for a wonderful experience!

Excellent, so much fun.

Went along to the creation station for the first time today and both my daughter and I loved it. So much to do, activities all set out and so much to choose from. My daughter loves arts and crafts so this is absolutely perfect for her. Alex is lovely and made us feel very welcome. We can't wait to come along again.
