A few weeks ago I spotted this project here on the Family Fun website.
Just give the string a pull and...
Up go the little wings!
If you go to the Family Fun website, please note, I made a few changes to their pattern. They made their bat from craft foam while I used cardboard; and their bat is hanging upside down while mine hangs right-side-up (I know bats sleep upside down, but I don't believe they actually fly upside down!) Also, I reduced their pattern by 64%. I wanted my bat to be small and cute... not big and scary. Lastly, they stated this craft would take an hour, but I found that, once I'd gathered my supplies, it only took me 15 or 20 minutes to complete. Putting this together was easy-peasy!
Doesn't he look cute hanging on the inside of our front door?
