Get ready for some easy Halloween crafts that are spookily easy to prepare with this free bat template to download and print.
I’ve always done quite a lot of bat activities with my kids, partially because my kids love Halloween but also because my son was huge fan of Batman when he was younger. If I couldn’t find anything online to do then I’d have to come up with something quickly!
Getting things ready from scratch can be time consuming but likewise at the rate my kids go through ideas it can be pretty expensive if we buy things for every activity so hopefully this bat template will help save you a bit of money and time while allowing you to have fun and get creative with your child.
If you like this template but don’t need to print it right now then make sure that you bookmark this page or pin an image so that you have it ready when you need it.
Bat Template Craft Ideas
- Grab a cotton bud (q-tip) and dip it in black, blue, purple and green ink and use it to colour in the bat shape. Can you make dots all over the bat?
- Colour or paint it. There’s nothing wrong with the most simple ideas as they’re often the most fun and can lead to more creativity too – what will your bat’s face look like? Or you could print the bat onto blue paper, paint your bat black and then add some stars to the background.
- Use it for resist art and colour in the outside of the paper.
- Make a suncatcher using dark cellophane or tissue paper. I made pumpkin suncatchers with my kids that they really enjoyed but you could easily do a bat shaped one cutting about a 2cm edge around this template to give you a frame for your child to fill in. As well as the original post about this I’ve also linked the video of making our suncatchers to this page to give you an idea how this works.
