How to make a giant Halloween Bat

This easy to make bat craft is an ideal craft for children to make at home or in the classroom. Make a few and hand them in the school hall for the Halloween disco or at a Halloween party.

You will need:

Step 1 – the wings

Draw an ark onto the black sugar paper and cut out. Fold the paper concertina style and attach to the body using black card.

Step 2 – the body

Cut the black card in half and roll together to create a card tube body. Stick this together using glue sticks. Decorate the face using wiggle eyes and cut ‘fangs’ out using the white card, draw a mouth using a white paint marker. Cut triangles out of the black card to make ‘ears’ and use a white marker pen to colour the ‘inner ears’.
