CRAFTivities- Bat Shapes

I saw this bat made out of shapes somewhere and we had to recreate it, it was so cute!

Skills we focused on were identifying and cutting shapes!

  • Construction paper (we used brown because we didn't have black)
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes
  • String (to hang it with)
  • Tape or stapler to attach string

  • Draw 2 triangles, 1 rectangle and a circle
  • Let your child cut them out (for little ones you can do it for them and let them glue)
  • Have them glue it together
  • Add eyes and mouth if you want (we skipped the mouth)
  • Tape on string & hand upside-down (after they play with it of course)

Hey girl!

Ok, April did a totally rockin' job on your blog design - I LOVE IT!

This looks like so much fun. I can't wait until Kaylee is able to do crafty things like this. For now, I just try to keep her from jacking my pens and writing on stuff she shouldn't.

It was so good to meet you in Vegas and bond over our common motherhood struggles. You are so sweet, and I hope we can get to know each other better on our blogs.
