Egg Carton Bat

Show kids how to recycle those old egg cartons into these Halloween Bats. Egg cartons make great craft materials.


Egg Cartons




Black Paint

Glow in the Dark Pens


For this project you need 3 sections of a egg carton.

Start by cutting out the wings by cutting away a scallop edge.

Using a skewer or pair of scissors put a small hole into the head of the spider, thread your elastic through and tie a knot. This will enable your spider to bounce around!!

Glue on the eyes and your done.

For kids it would be easier to cut the cartons up and have them decorate the bat's. But it depends on your age group.

You can also paint these bats black, make a garland out of them or just dangle them from the cieling with some thumb tacks.

Use glow in the dark pens for the eyes for a night time spooky look.
