Crafting with Kids: Silly Little Bats

Here is a little bat craft you can make with your kids.

You need a small piece of tulle, 2 black pipecleaners, google eyes, craft foam, scissors, and adhesive. We used glue dots, but the 3-D type I used were not the best, so I am going to re-fasten everything with some hot glue.

Twist the pipe cleaners around the piece of tulle.

There is no science to this- just bend your pipe cleaners so they look like bat wings. ☻
FINAL STEP: cut a circle with little triangle ears from the craft foam and attach it to the center. Then attach the eyes.
We played with making teeth for the bat, but decided to leave the teeth off. ☻

We made a few little foam ghosts and hung them all up above the kitchen table with our little pumpkins we made.
Happy Halloween!
