One DIY bat project wasn’t sufficient this Halloween season, so we had to come up with another one!
This flying one-eyed bat likes to hear himself talk. With a little attitude and a lot of style, this cute little guy can’t see very well but he sure knows how to speak his mind!
If you were a bat, what would you say?
“How DARE you?”
- Black construction paper for the wings
- Colored construction paper for the talk bubble
- School glue
- Small circle of recycled cardboard (a cereal box thickness)
- Water bottle lids
- Hole punch
- Small piece of wire
- Small piece of duct tape
- String, yarn or twine for the necklace
- White gel pen, wax pencil (China marker) or oil pastel
How to Do It:
- Fold the construction paper in half and cut bat wing shape. Decorate the wings with lines, patterns & shapes using the white marker or oil pastel.
- Cut a small piece of recycled cereal box into a circle to form the necklace and eyeball. Use the hole punch to make a hole and loop the string or twine through it to make the necklace.
- Glue a few water bottle lids on the cardboard circle to create the pupil of the eye. Add a button or jewel if desired.
- Cut out the shape for the talk bubble and write a clever message with the white marker or oil pastel.
- Twist the piece of wire around a pencil to form a coil spring.
- Using a small piece of duct tape, attach one end of the wire to the back of the talk bubble and the other end to the back of the cardboard circle.
