Bat Silhouette

If you are looking for a unique and fun craft, this bat silhouette is just the thing. Kids of all ages will enjoy creating their bat outlines. And as a teacher or parent, you can incorporate this craft into the Halloween theme, learning about nocturnal animals, or studying the letter B.

Total Time: 15 minutes to make & a couple hours to dry

Yield: 2 pieces




  1. Print and cut out your bats.
  2. Use the painter's tape or poster putty to attach your bats to the black construction paper. I put my 3 small bats on one page and my large bat on another. Cut and mold the tape or putty around each bat's outline, making it overhang onto the paper about half a centimeter. All edges need to be covered so that no paint will escape under the bats. But, be careful to maintain the bat's shape.

  4. Start by using the orange and yellow paint to dab dots around the outline of each bat.
  5. Remove the painter's tape or putty and paper bats. I found that the tape worked better.
  6. Now dab dots around the remainder of the page. I added in white to make the background pop. White-out works well if you don't have white paint!
  7. Allow to dry and display!
