Step 1

Fill sock to heel with batting. Trim extra fabric, then fold flap over and secure with a safety pin.

Step 2

Draw bat wings onto the black foam and have your child cut them out. Do the same on the white foam to make the eyes and mouth. Cut each pipe cleaner into three sections and twist together at one end to make feet.

Step 3

(Mom) Hot-glue the wings, face, and feet onto the bat. When dry, use pipe cleaners to hang the bat upside down from a tree branch.
