Halloween Kids Craft Easy DIY Bats


Now that it is officially October, the internet is sure to be flooded with turkeys and even some Christmas trees. I am holding off and throwing up one more Halloween post. This one is for the kiddos!! DIY bats!These easy Diy Bats are the perfect Halloween craft. Egg carton bats are always fun, but these have a special shine to them. These Halloween bats can fly inside or outside!

In true Twitchetts fashion, this craft is simple to set up and you should have most of the supplies around the house! I Love these clear egg cartons. They give these bats such a cool look when they are finished! It also makes a great outdoor decoration as well. We have made these the past couple years with regular egg cartons, but the clear just looks so much better so I have to share!

What you will need for your DIY Bats:

  • Black Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Clear Egg Cartons  (There are a few different brands of eggs that come in clear cartons. Both brands I know are organic.)
  • String
  • Googly Eyes (optional, you could use white paint)
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Making your DIY Bats:

Start by cutting your egg carton into three egg rows.

Paint the inside of the egg cartons. This might take a few coats to get a solid black coat. Or you can just paint it once extra thick. Since they are plastic and the paint is inside you can hang them outside in the trees!Create this easy Halloween Kids Craft, DIY Bats out of everyday supplies. Your kiddos will love hanging up their creations as decoration around your home!

Next, add your eyes. This is perhaps the hardest part… Peeling off the backs of googly eyes can be so difficult!! You could just as easily paint them on!

Now find a place to hang your DIY Bats! You could hang them in a tree or a window. I decided to create a fun decoration with ours. There is a strobe light in the bottom!  I will be placing this out front on Halloween!
