Halloween isn’t too far away. Ok it’s quite far but everyone seems so excited already, we just couldn’t resist making these cute little bats early!
These bats are perfect for toddlers to make as they are not too fiddly.
I liked to chat to Willow about bats when making these. Discussing how they fly, what they eat and even where they live. She was fascinated!
What you will need:
Tin foil, Black sacks, Black String, Googley eyes, Black and white paper or card, scissors and cellotape.
How to make your bats:
Wrap the bag around so it is nice and smooth then secure with a little cellotape at the back of the bat. Make sure that you have left some of the black bag loose either side of the ball. These are the wings. Now, take the wings and twist once (Like you would when wrapping a tube of smarties for Xmas!), secure in place with some black string. Just a simple knot will do.
Now, stick on 2 googley eyes. If you don’t have any googley eyes cut some little round circles from paper and draw on some eyes, it works just as well! Then cut 2 triangles out of the black card, fold the bottom and stick them onto the bat as ears! Finally do the same with the white paper, for teeth!
