Hand Print Bat Craft

The inspiration for this project comes from the Oriental Trading Co. catalog.

Materials Needed:
Hand Print Bat by Mia, Age 3 1/2
  • black construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • wiggle eyes
  • white craft foam (or construction paper)
  • dimensional paint (optional)
  • pencil
  1. Trace both hands onto black construction paper.
  2. Cut out paper hand prints.
  3. Cut the face/body of the bat from black construction paper. (Ours looks like an oval with pointy "cat" ears on top.)
  4. Glue hand print cutouts to bat's body to form wings.
  5. Glue wiggle eyes to bat's face.
  6. Cut fangs from white craft foam.
  7. Glue fangs to bat's face. (You could also use candy corn for a fun twist!) 
  8. Draw a mouth. (We used red dimensional paint. You could use crayon, marker, or tempera paint in any color.)
