- Black Crew Sock – I used a kid’s size and found it at the Dollar Tree
- Fiber Fill
- Black Felt Sheet
- White Foam Sheet
- Google Eyes
- Fabric Glue – like Fabri-Tac (recommended for it’s an instant seal)
- (optional) Bat Wing Template
Instructions for this Halloween Craft for kids…
- Stuff the black sock with the fiber fill most of the way
- Glue the end of the sock shut
- Cut out 2 bat wings and 2 small black triangles for ears from the black felt
- Cut 2 small white triangles from the white foam sheet
- Near the top of the bat’s head, about where you would want the wings to go, cut a little slit in both sides
- Insert the narrow end of the wing into the slits and glue them in place
- Let the glue dry for a minute, so the wings are secure
- Attach the google eyes, ears and teeth with the fabric glue
