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!

Lovely class ??‍???‍???

Such a lovely Time today. Nothing too much to ask from Alexis and certainly felt very safe and comfortable in current circumstances! I only wish I could have come when my twins were smaller and could move less! Would love to come back for another session- thank you!

We had a lovely session, and made some beautiful keepsakes. Alexis made us feel welcome and she was helpful when needed but also let us get on with things ourselves.

Get crafty in a relaxed

Get crafty in a relaxed, stress-free and supportive atmosphere with a lovely, friendly group of people. There is of course, the added bonus that you get to take your creation home!!

Creative fun had by all!

My youngest daughter loves her weekly session at The Creation Station! Splashsuits are provided to keep the little ones clean and the class is held in a COVID safe environment. Great, creative fun for children and parents to have together, we just wish the time didn't go so quickly!

Can’t wait to go again!

I went along to a baby creation station session. I’m not the most creative person but thought it would be fun for my baby. Had the best time and made some brilliant little keepsakes and the host Alexis was great and gave me so ideas, the cake and coffee was a bonus too! Booked in for the Xmas keepsakes session and can’t wait!! Thanks so much for a lovely morning

My two girls came to the Creation Station holiday club and absolutely LOVED it, wore their creations the whole evening and talked about their day none stop. Claire is incredible with the kids and we will not hesitate to book our girls on to more of her Holiday sessions! Thank you!
