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

You have to try this!

I can't recommend Creation Station enough! My daughter and I absolutely loved every minute of it. Sarah is so sweet, happy, kind and accommodating. So different to your run of the mill baby classes, and excellently organised x

I went along for the first time with my 11 month old son, was made to feel very welcome. It was his first time doing any kind of messy play involving paint and he loved it we even took away our handmade mobile with his little handprints on that I will treasure. We will definitely be going back.

Fun Christmas card making workshop

Christmas card making workshop was great fun. My daughter loved getting her feet painted (apparently it tickled), the results looked great and Lisa had great activities for my daughter to do whilst put the finishing touches to the cards.

Nakita hosted my son's Creation station…

Nakita hosted my son's Creation station party at the weekend. It was fab! Painting and play doh. The children loved getting messy (and I enjoyed not having to deal with the mess!!) It kept them busy for much longer than I expected and it was so lively that they got to take their creations home. Nakita was so lovely with the children and helpful advising the best options for the age group. The request for a submarine theme didnt faze her either!! Would highly recommend and hope to use again in the future.
