How to create your own Bat-Tastic Bunting!

Creation Station | Halloween Party Ideas | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Halloween Activities For Kids

We know something is spooky around the corner when the days become shorter and you can’t help but want to stay in bed for those precious extra 10 minutes in the morning!

We’ve been busy here getting crafty to give you, your family & loved ones fun filled activities to do throughout the month of October. This fun filled activity will keep you busy for around 1 hour and your Bat-tastic bunting will leave your house looking super spooky this October the 31st!

You will need help from an adult to create this brilliant bunting as sharp scissors, whole punchers and staplers are involved.

What you will need:

Equipment you will need:

  • A4 black card
  • A piece of scrap white card
  • Googley eyes
  • Cello tape
  • PVA Glue
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Single hole puncher
  • Glue brush or stick


Step 1-

  • Fold a A4 black card in a circle horizontally to make the body of the bat, stable the top fold and bottom fold.

Step 2-

  • Fold a piece of A4 black card in half horizontally, cut the card into a bat shaped wings! You can be quite creative here to make Bat Fairies!

Step 3-

  • Fold celotape repetitively to make it stick on both side, stick the wings to the bat body.

Step 4-

  • Remove the sticky back from the googley eyes and place on the front of the bat – make sure they are straight!

Step 5-

  • Take your A4 black card and cut two triangles for the bats ears.

Step 6-

  • Add PVA glue to the bottom ends of the triangle and place them inside the bats body at the top – inline with each eye.

Step 7-

  • Take your hole punch and add two holes at the bottom of the bats body – inline with the bats eyes.

Step 8-

  • Take your pipe cleaners and push one through each - secure tight by twisting the pipe cleaner round with a loop.

Step 9-

  • Cut the pipe cleaners so that the bats legs aren’t too long and then roll up the bottoms to form the bats feet.

Step 10-  

  • Take your white card and cut it into a triangle for the bats nose. Use PVA glue and add just underneath the eye area – voila!

My son loves going to creation station

My son loves going to creation station, he is so delighted every week with what he has made. He always comes out smiling. Karen is lovely with the kids and all the children always look so enthusiastic when they are going in. Definitely worth the money, I would highly recommend this group.

Wonderful party!

Wonderful party! The kids were busy for the whole two hours creating things that they got to take home at the end of the party. Eleanor & her team were professional, organised & clearly experienced. The adults hardly had to do a thing. Would highly recommend!

6th birthday Slime Party

My daughter requested a slime making workshop for her 6th birthday and she wasn’t disappointed! Natalie ensured that she, and her classmates had a fantastic time and she kept their attention for the full hour! All the parents were very impressed and the children were very happy with their creations! I can’t recommend Natalie highly enough...she was reliable and gave us lots of support to make sure the kids had a great time. Thanks again!

Star hand stamps are the best

We've had two sessions so far with our 2 year old and he has loved them. The fun and learning that is presented in each session is amazing. The personal welcome and interaction throughout the class makes you feel comfortable. My little boy especially likes getting his star hand stamp at the end of the session. We have booked onto more sessions and can't wait to see what else we make/do as the weeks go on

The session was brilliant

The session was brilliant. Joanna was a perfectionist, she completely understood that due to the nature of the class, artworks had to be immaculate (very difficult for a bunch of babies!!). She was extremely patient and managed a very busy crowd so well. There were masses of materials and you were free to do as you pleased. We didn't feel rushed. Great session, definitely recommended!

A really nice evening

A really nice evening spent making some lovely crafts! I had an excellent time with my friend, who had suggested the evening in the first place, and now I have some nice reminders decorating my windowsill and bookshelf.
