Bat craft




  • White construction paper
  • Basket type coffee filter
  • 1 wooden clothespin (or coloured plastic clothespin)
  • Purple and black paint
  • Paint brush
  • 2 goggly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue




  • Paint the wooden clothespin black and set aside to dry.
  • Cut the coffee filter in half (fold it in half first, then cut on the fold).
  • Paint the right half of the filter with black paint, and then the left half with the purple paint, and set them aside to dry.
  • After the filters are dry, place the purple half on top of the black half with painted sides facing up, so they are lined up.
  • Pinch the filter with your fingers to gather in the center of the straight edge.
  • Open the clothespin, add a dab of glue on the clamp and then place the gathered end of the filter on top of the clamp and close the clothespin.
  • Cut jagged edges along the circular side of the half circle to further show the shape of the bat wings.
  • Glue two googly eyes on the front of the clothespin.
