Egg Carton Bats

With both boys out of school for UEA/Fall Break, I decided to get some more crafting done. We made our bats & spiders at the same time, but I am going to split up the directions.

Here is what you need:

egg carton
black paint
paint brush
google eyes
scissors (not pictured)

You need three egg carton cups still attached together. The middle will be the bat's body. The edges will be the wings. Trim the outside to resemble bat wings.

Paint the entire thing black. Let it dry. You may want to paint the inside, but we were tired of painting by then!

Poke a hole in the top center egg cup (this will be where the string comes through).

Glue on the google eyes & let them dry.

Hang your bat from a string & there you have it!

Ok....seriously too cute! I would have never thought of that. Great idea I'll be passing along to my sister!

That is adorable! I've been saving egg cartons in case I found a great craft and now I have!

Way cute. I've seen the spiders before, but never the bats. Fun.
