Trace and Cut Out Bat With Bat Template
Print out the bat template attached above and fold in half, then cut out (Images 1 and 2). Use a pencil to trace the bat shape onto a piece of black craft foam then cut it out (Images 3 and 4).
Add Googly Eyes
Attach googly eyes to the bat's head with a dab of craft glue.
Punch Hole and Add Fishing Line
Use a hole punch to create a hole at the bottom of the bat's body for hanging (Image 1). Slide 6-12" of fishing line through the hole and knot it (Image 2). Hang your finished bats from low tree limbs or porch overhangs (Image 3).
