Halloween craft (2009) – Paper Bats & Handprints Spiders

I know we shouldn’t invite more bats over to celebrate Halloween with us since we may potentially still have some (real) bats living in our attic. (Yes, even after we had the professional pest control guy over to evict the bats last August, I still heard noises just a few weeks ago when the weather was still warm and toasty. So maybe they are still there. πŸ™„ Sigh.) But look at these paper bats!! They are so cute that I am willing to “take the risk” and let them stay around till Halloween is over! Hehee…

We also made several hand prints spiders too!

Because we really like our bats, The girll and I continued to make some smaller ones, which we intend to use them to dress up our boring ceiling fans later today. While we were making the craft, the girl thought it will be a good idea to make an albino one, and so here it is.

Hmm… maybe we should also make some rainbow color bats later when the girl comes home from school! I think it will be fun. πŸ™‚

By the way, the original paper bats craft idea and detailed instructions can be found here.

Materials used:
construction papers
color markers

What I like about these crafts is that, they are so simple and use the most common materials to make. But most importantly, my children enjoyed making them. You may have noticed, I never like to do any craft project that uses fanciful or special materials. The reasons are simple – I’m too lazy to head out to a craft store to get craft supply and also I think it is a completely waste of $ and time when there are other simpler (and maybe better) craft projects to make. So, if you see any craft projects here, you can definitely make it too. πŸ™‚
