The first step was to trace each child's hands.
They all really enjoyed this part as you can see with all the smiles. I think it was in part that the crayon tickled their hands and fingers.
Hands big and small!
Part of the pre-prep I did was cut out circles, triangles, and a bat body.
Time to make the bat- starting out with the hands/wings. JT is so expressive when he puts things together.
Then the head.
Finally the triangle ears- I had the kids look at a photo example (on Pinterest of course) to help with the ear placement. Didn't help one bit, except they all ended up on the head area :)
Time to give the bat a happy face!
Finn made a great face- he made a point that the "eyes need to be circles"
Ella had fun coloring her bat
Bat-tastic creations! By the way, Mason was in fact having fun, he was just being goofy with this sinister expression with me :)
Another great craft for the windows. 4 little bats to greet our friends.
