These little bats have brass brads for their noses so their heads can be moved from side to side. Pipecleaners are used to make their legs. They are great to use to teach children about different types of bats.
Little brown bat patterns, fruit bat patterns, and bat patterns on which children can draw their own faces are available.
What you will need:
Card stock or brown construction paper
How to Make the Bats:
1. Print out the patterns or construction paper, color, and cut them out. (Printable Patterns for this craft are availble to members.)
2. Punch holes in the nose and at the top of the body pattern.
3. Attach the head to the body with a brass brad.
4. Cut two inches off of the pipecleaner and folder the remaining longer length in half. Cut the two-inch piece in half. Fold the short piece in half and wind them around the ends of the longer piece to make the bat's feet.
