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!

I would highly recommend Creation Station Northwest Nottingham - my son is gaining so much from the after school session at his school - the pieces he has produced are a credit to Nicola’s patience and encouragement and he always comes away recalling what he has learnt about the artist who has inspired that weeks piece.

Fun & unique craft party

Deepa did a wonderful job with a difficult bunch of 6 & 7 year olds! They all enjoyed decorating animals and taking them home in their decorated paper bags. Lots of sheets and aprons kept everything and everyone clean. I would recommend her and would do it again too! Thanks.

Fantastic party

A really fantastic party for our 6 year old (plus his toddler sister who also loved it!). All the children were super engaged and went home with their creations at the end. Alix and Ian were brilliant and very reliable. Highly recommend!

Farah created a wonderful party for my 6 year old son and his friends. They are all boisterous and active boys. I could not believe how engaged all the boys became in the activities Farah organised for the party. I really could not recommend Farah highly enough.
