This easy craft can be included within lesson plan activities in the themes column related to the bat or Halloween.

Review craft printing options and suggested learning activities while assembling the craft.
  • Option 1:  Print your selection of brown or black color template.  Discuss colors on the template or those chosen by the children to decorate the craft, read suggested learning and assembly sequence.
  • Option 2:  Print black & white   Children can color, paint or decorate first,  cut out and proceed as above.
  • Option 3:  For large groups 6 or more
    Print the black and white template directly onto brown, tan, dark gray paper, cut out and proceed to assembly and learning suggestions.
  • Options 4:  (Recycle)
    Print the black and white format, cut out and use as a master pattern,  trace over left over materials such as:  
    Brown grocery bag paper is a good choice and it is sturdy.  The face features are easy to duplicate by hand and glue paper eyes or craft wiggly eyes.
    >  Trace over black or brown construction paper with a sharpened white or light color crayon, or the light colored pens, cut out and assemble.
    >  For a more permanent craft or display trace over  "foamies" and use permanent pen to make facial features.

Craft assembly and learning (after pieces are decorated and cut out)
Show the small image of the finished craft (featured in the template) to help the children see how the finished craft looks and to aid them in positioning the pieces.  The assembly of the craft is quite similar to putting a puzzle together and involves problem solving and small motor skills. and during the assembly review shapes and counting (numerals).

Suggested assembly, and review recognizable shapes:

  1. Count the pieces of the craft (four) and you want to write numbers in the back for sequence of assembly.
  2.  Glue and identify the crescent shape piece (ears)  behind circle head piece.
  3. Glue glue assembled head on oval body piece.
  4.  Glue assembled body & head over the middle of the wings template
  5. Review bat body parts

Other ideas for the craft >

  • Tape the craft to a craft stick (Popsicle stick) to make a hand puppet.
  • Add a looped ribbon or  pieces of yarn or string in various lengths to hang many of them as window ornaments.
  • Create a nocturnal landscape with stars and a moon using colored paper (refer to online puzzle image).
