Halloween Bat Craft

This Halloween Bat Craft uses geometrical shapes and free-form wings.  Kids get a bat that “flies!”

Each kid gets a 9 X 12” black craft paper.  They each trace a circle (I use a container lid).  They cut it out, and cut 2 triangles. 

Then they fold the leftover paper in half, draw a bat wing free-style, and cut 2 wings together.  They glue the parts and draw a face with white crayon.  Each bat looks a little different, and that's the way I like it.

When the glue dries, they hold the bat by the head and bounce it slowly up and down for a graceful flight, to the tune of our favorite Halloween songs.
