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 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.
