Halloween is just a few weeks away and my children love to create festive decorations to hang around our house like our Paper Plate Spider Wreath and our Halloween Windsocks. Today, we made a Batty Handprint Bat Craft for Kids. I love using my children’s handprints when creating crafts for kids because they make the best keepsakes. When we decorate for Halloween next year, I can’t wait to look at this craft and see how big their little hands have grown.
How To Make A Batty Handprint Bat Craft:
- Black Foam or Construction Paper
- Grey Construction Paper
- Googly Eyes
- Pipe Cleaner
- Draw or trace a circle onto the piece of black foam or construction paper for the bat’s body. We traced a drinking glass.
- Cut the circle out. If your child is just learning how to cut, he or she may need hand-over-hand help cutting the foam.
- Trace both of your child’s hands on the foam and cut them out.
- Glue the hands onto the circle for the bat’s wings.
- Cut 2 triangles out of the foam and glue them onto the top of the circle for the bat’s ears.
- Cut a circle out of the grey construction paper and glue it onto the circle for the bat’s nose.
- Glue the googly eyes onto the circle.
- Cut 3 inches off the pipe cleaner and bend it to form the bat’s mouth.
- Glue the pipe cleaner on the circle.
A Batty Handprint Bat Craft for Kids is a fun and easy-to-make Halloween decoration that you will treasure as your child grows every year.
I love handprint crafts. They make a nice keepsake of the size of a child’s hand at that particular year and season. Thanks for sharing this on Toddler Fun Friday!
