Decorate the Bat Template
Color in the bat template using your favorite paints, crayons or pens. Why not use black, grey or purple for a spooky Halloween look?
Cut Out the Template Elements
Once you’ve finished decorating your bat, carefully cut out the elements from the template.
Then cut one strip lengthwise from a sheet of colored A4 card – it needs to be the same thickness as the rectangle eyes on the template.
Finally, cut two more thin strips of card, each three or four inches long.
Secure the Eyes to a Paper Strip
Stick the rectangle eyes into the middle of the strip of colored card.
Let’s Secure the Eyes
Turn your bat over. Now stick one of the thinner card strips vertically over the left eye – this will support your bat’s moving eyes. Stick the other strip in the same way over the right eye.
Thread the Eyes
Now carefully slide the strip of eyes underneath the two thin support strips – be gentle!
The Moving Eyes Bat is Complete
Now it’s time to play! Make your friends laugh with your spooky and kooky goggle-eyed bat, or hang them up for an extra dose of Halloween fun. And don’t forget to share your pictures and tag us on social media: we go batty for them!
