Supplies: Empty Paper Towel or Toilet Tissue Rolls, Glue, Scissors, Black Tissue Paper, Decorations for eyes and mouth, Black Construction Paper
This is a cute and frugal craft for Halloween. Simply take an empty paper towel or toilet tissue roll and cut into 2 inch pieces. Next cut strips of black construction paper into a 2 inch strip a little longer than the circumference of the roll. Cover and glue with a glue stick.
Trace out a bat “face” be sure to include ears and have the children cut out and glue to the ring. Add 2 squiggly eyes (or you can substitute with sequins, beads, hole punches) and add a mouth. You could use rick-rack (as pictured), yarn, ribbon or other.
Add a piece of black yarn to hang and a small piece of black tissue paper through the middle for “wings”.
