Moving Eyes Bat Craft: We’ve had some brilliant feedback on our moving eye crafts from all of our Arty Crafty Kids out there – you’re all loving the combination of craft and interactive play.
So, joining our friendly witch in the Halloween moving eyes series, is a friendly bat, with added bite! This simple paper craft can be done independently, at school or at home, and delivers lots of fun once it’s completed too.
If you’re planning some Halloween activities for kids in advance of October half term, our moving eyes bat craft will make the perfect addition to your family-friendly spooky fun.
Paint, Coloring Pencils or Crayons
Color in the bat template using your favorite paints, crayons or pens. Why not use black, grey or purple for a spooky Halloween look?
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.
Stick the rectangle eyes into the middle of the strip of colored card.
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.
Now carefully slide the strip of eyes underneath the two thin support strips – be gentle!
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!
