    bat silhouette craft for kids


If your child doesn't like getting paint on their hands then you could use a clothes peg to hold onto the pom pom to give them that extra bit of space.
This craft can lead to messy hands or fingers so be sure to keep a wet cloth or similar close to hand to help clean up if you need to.
