I know that I have already posted something today, but I just had to go ahead and tell you guys about this! Plus, I promised on Instagram that I would tell you how to make these bats tonight, and a certain someone (not to name names, but Josh) is waiting with anticipation!
These bats were SO easy to make. The hardest part was cutting the egg cartons apart, but the job would be much easier with a pair of kitchen shears, I think. I got the idea from http://www.dltk-holidays.com/halloween/meggcarton-bat.htm. We used sequins for some of the eyes and I just happened to have some glittery foam triangles (leftover from last year’s Halloween pumpkin craft) that worked perfectly for the teeth.
The kids had a great time painting the egg cartons! Charlie had a friend over today, and it kept them occupied for awhile!
We also made some ghosts today. Remember the ghosts we used to make with the lollipops and kleenex? I used cotton balls and some scraps of fabric and ribbon that I had sitting around. They turned out really cute and much prettier and more colorful than the kleenex version!
The kids made a couple of the ghosts, but honestly weren’t too interested in this little project! I did enjoy myself, though.
Maddie and I walked through the woods and found the perfect sticks to use for our Halloween tree! Isn’t it great?
I do think it needs something else. Maybe some orange lights?
