3. White circle sticker, 1/2″ diameter, 2 pcs or use googly eyes
4. Black marker or small black circle sticker (2 pcs.)
5. White color pencil or marker
8. All purpose adhesive, clear. I used UHU
Gather and prepare the above listed materials and supplies.
Download the bat template and cut it out as shown in Bats Flying Wall. I used the largest size of the wings.
Assemble the eyes using white and black circle sticker. If you don’t have stickers, you can cut out from white and black paper respectively.
I used 5″ x 4″ black card stock for the body but you can use toilet paper roll and paint it into black.
Draw a line 1/2″ from edge of the 4″ side. Apply adhesive.
Overlap 1/2″ and glue it to the other edge to make a paper tube.
Wait a while for it to dry.
Press one end of the paper roll flat to get 2 crease line at the side.
Press the other end but in perpendicular direction to the first one.
Slowly press the edge inward to form a curve. Repeat the same to the other side. Make sure both curves are similar and the flaps are able to close up the opening of the tube, as shown in the picture.
Repeat the same to the other end to form the curve.
Press and glue one end together to form a small bat treat box or pocket as shown in picture.
Attach the wings and eyes to the bat treat box by gluing them on it.
Draw a mouth and give an expression to the bat treat box with white color pencil or marker.
Fill the bat treat box with candies and treats, close the flaps.
You can make some smaller ones, add strings so that you can hang it on any place you want.
The bat treat boxes are waiting for the visiting kids to come for trick-or-treat activities.
