Today's craft is absolutely adorable and simple to make too!

All you need are some common supplies and you and your kids can make this goofy and cute bat for Halloween.

I'm including a free printable template so it's easy to trace and cut out the shapes for your bat!


This bat craft is also great for nature themed learning and can be made with your favorite book about bats! Use it for pretend play or display for everyone to see.

Please use your best judgement and supervision when using scissors and hot glue with younger kiddos. This works well with kids preschool aged and up. The younger kiddos can help paint, cut and glue the bat shapes.
