We love Halloween and with October in sight we are excited to make a start on some new Halloween crafts to share with you. We have a huge bank of Halloween crafts for kids but there’s always room for more. We recently saw a local bat walk advertised and this inspired our spooky accordion fold bat craft for kids to make.
You will need:
Black, pink, white and red card
Blu Stik (and Blu Tack to hang up)
How to make our spooky accordion fold bat craft
Print and cut out the templates from our free bat craft template.
Cut the mouth from red card, the two white fangs from white card, the two small ears from pink card and everything else from black card.
Glue the pink earpieces on the black earpieces and the glue the mouth on the bat’s face.
Then glue the teeth and the ears of the bat.
Then take the long black piece of and fold it in an accordion fold. Gently bend the accordion folded piece into a ‘U’ shape.
Then join both ends of the folded piece and glue the bat’s head on to it.
Attach two googly eyes using the Blu Stik glue to complete your spooky little bat.
They make a fun spooky topper for a Halloween box of treats, or why not make a whole colony of bats to decorate for Halloween.
Disclosure – thank you to Bostik for supplying some of the craft supplies used in this post.
