Halloween: Make a Flapping Bat Decoration

Penny Whitehouse

Have you been participating in some fun and creepy crafts in the lead up to Halloween?  We love to get creative and celebrate the animals many people are less fond of. We love bats and although they can sometimes get a bad rap, we think they are the perfect animal to fall in love with during the Halloween season.

This flapping bat is easy to make with your children and adds to a Halloween display for trick or treaters to interact with on their arrival to your door step.  With only a few materials required and a free printable template, set aside an afternoon enjoying some quality time with your children and create something batacular!
