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!

Worth every minute and every penny

I’ve been doing the Christmas Card making session with my son for 3 consecutive years; it’s brilliant! Nikki is incredible with all kids; and gets amazing hand and footprints whether they’re newborns or toddlers with ants in their pants! There’s always a HUGE range of stationary, pens, sparkles, and decorations. In addition, while parents finesse the card designs, there’s plenty of toys and games for the kids to keep them occupied... Looking forward to coming again next year!

Such a lovely party

Such a lovely party, with Eleanor from the Creation Station! We wanted a party that was a bit different to the other party options , such as soft play etc, so this seemed a great idea as our daughter loves crafts. All the children were so engaged with the activities and all the parents commented on how relaxing the party was as the children were all so busy and well behaved. Would definitely recommend!
