    What You´ll Need

    • Cardboard tube
    • Black or brown acrylic paint
    • Paintbrush
    • Black pipe cleaners
    • Scissors
    • Single hole punch
    • Glue
    • Googly Eyes
    • Black or silver marker

    Instructions

    1. Gather all materials.

    2. Paint your cardboard tube black or brown (depending on the color bat you’re making).

    3. While the cardboard tube is drying, draw some bat wings onto black or brown construction paper​ (depending on the color bat you’re making) and have an adult cut them out.

    4. Have an adult cut out some little triangles from the same construction paper​ you used to make the wings to make bat ears.

    5. Turn the tube around and have an adult pu​nch​ two holes near the bottom. This is where the legs will go.

    6. Glue the triangles onto the inside of the cardboard tube to make ears. Pick out two ​googly eyes​ and glue them to the outside of the cardboard tube. Use a marker to draw a mouth. Glue the wings onto the back of the cardboard tube.

    7. Have an adult cut a​ pipe cleaner​ in half. Twist one end of each pipe cleaner through each punched hole. To make the feet, have an adult snip off the last inch of each leg. Wrap the one-inch piece of pipe cleaner around the bottom of each leg. Fold the middle part of the foot to make a hook for hanging.

    8. Hang your Batricia bat up for fall or Halloween!

    Done!
