toilet roll halloween bat craft for kids

Tomorrow is the first of October and that means it’s officially the start of spooky season! We can’t wait to start decorating the house and today we’ve been busy making these fun tp roll Halloween bats which we’re going to turn into a spooky garland for the conservatory. We still have plenty left to make on the weekend when my son is home but I think it’s going to look amazing!

Here’s what we used

  • Tp roll
  • Coloured paints and paintbrush
  • Coloured card
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue/tape

How to make these TP roll Halloween bats

Take the toilet roll and cover it in the chosen colour of paint before popping it aside to dry.

Cut out two triangle ears and glue a slightly smaller triangle onto each one to make the inner ears. Once the tp roll is dry attach the ears inside one end of the roll.

Cut out two white circle eyes and then glue a circle pupil onto each one. Glue the eyes on to the front of the bat then finish the face by adding a mouth and two pointy triangle fangs.

Next, Cut out the shape of the bat’s wings and stick them onto the back of the toilet roll bat.

Finally, Take the pipe cleaners and twist three loops in one end of each to make the feet. Stick the other end of the pipe cleaner leg down in place inside the bottom end of the toilet roll. Once dry your bat is ready to display!
