Halloween is almost here! And so I thought it would be the perfect time to share a fun Halloween inspired craft you can make with your kiddos. I love making crafts with my kids that use hand and foot prints because it’s almost as though I am capturing a piece of their childhood in paint. Two years ago I shared how to make a hand print spider and foot print ghost – this year we’re going to do a hand print bat!
You’ll just need a few simple supplies….
We used black construction paper and light purple paint, but you could use any combination of colors you want. You will also need black and white paint – paint markers make it super easy and a sponge brush.
Paint both hands purple with sponge brush. Make sure fingers and thumb are all pressed together and press hand down on paper as shown in picture.
Using the sponge brush paint a circle in the middle of the two hand prints with two little triangles on top… the triangles are the bat ears.
Once all of the purple paint dries use the paint markers to paint eyes and a mouth – don’t forget to add in the fangs!
And when you are all finished you are left with an adorable hand print bat! I have a really awesome oval shaped old picture frame that I want to put Kaelyn’s bat in but it needs a coat of paint first. Once it’s all done I will definitely add a picture because it will be a great Halloween decoration.
Have fun making bats with your lil one!
