Handprint Bat Craft

As parents of a little girl who is growing up far too quickly, we love to find ways to incorporate handprints into our crafts so in a few years we can look back at them and the crafts will mean that much more to us. This handprint bat craft is one we came up with specifically as a Halloween craft, but it can be used at other times of the year as well if your child is very interested in animals. It turns out very cute and makes a great Halloween decoration as well!

What you'll need:

  • Black construction paper
  • 2 googly eyes
  • White 3-D paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
How to make your Handprint Bat Craft:
  • Trace your child's hands onto the black construction paper and cut out.  Cut off the thumb.
  • Cut out a circle (we used a glass as a template) and add two ears at the top of the circle.
  • Glue the handprints to the back of the circle.
  • Glue the googly eyes to the circle and use the 3-D paint to draw a smile with two fangs under the eyes.
