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. Cut triangles out of the black card to make ‘ears’ and use white paint to create the ‘inner ears’.

Why not make a giant spider to display alongside your bat?
