5.0 based on 1 rating

What You Need:

  • Recycled paper roll
  • ½ sheet construction paper, orange
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Tempera paint
  • Brushes
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue or tape
  • Scissors
  • Tissue paper, or netting
  • Candies, small toys, or coins

What You Do:

  1. Have your child paint the paper roll with black tempera paint and set it aside to dry.
  2. Lay the construction paper on the table in a landscape orientation. Encourage him to fold the construction paper in half and draw half of a bat wing, connecting the inner wing to the fold in the paper.
  3. Ask him to cut the wing out and unfold both wings.
  4. Using a ruler, have him measure as many striped lines as he would like across the span of the wings. Paint the stripes black.
  5. When the stripes on the wings are dry, making sure they are centered, attach them from the back of the painted paper roll with tape or glue to create wings.
  6. From the front of the roll, have him paint a mouth and fangs for the bat using tempera paint, and attach googly eyes.
  7. Insert tissue paper or netting to create a holder inside the bat's body.
  8. Fill the bat with your favorite candies, small toys or coins.
