What’s that flapping by? It’s a super simple flying bat craft! This craft is easy to make, fun to play with, and make a great decoration for the spooky season. Let’s make it!
Things You’ll Need
- our Flying Bat Craft template – the template makes drawing a bat shape super simple!

- wooden bamboo skewer, pencil, or straw for your handle
- black feathers
- googly eyes

Print the Flying Bat Craft template and cut out the bat shape.
Trace it onto a sheet of black construction paper with a white pencil crayon or chalk, then cut the bat out.
Paint a bamboo skewer (or pencil or straw) with black craft paint and set it aside to dry.
Fold the bat in half, then make a fold where the wing begins on both sides.
Glue the eyes to the outer side of the bat.
Tape the bamboo skewer (or pencil or straw) to the bottom of the bat along the fold line.
Use a glue stick to stick the black feathers to the top of the bat’s body.
Now, your bat is ready to take flight!
