DIY Kite Paper Bats
Halloween is approaching, and it's not just about costumes and candy; it's an opportunity to get creative and eco-conscious with your family! This year, let's make Halloween a little greener by taking small but impactful steps.
Join us in creating Halloween magic with DIY crafts. It's a fantastic way to bond with your little ones while instilling values of sustainability and creativity.
In this blog, we're excited to share a delightful craft project that's perfect for adding a spooky and creative touch to your Halloween decorations. We'll be making Paper Bats using kite paper. Kite paper can transform into beautiful, colourful window transparencies, but you can use any type of paper.
Square piece of kite paper (or the paper of your choice)
Fold the paper in half along its diagonal.
Lift the lower corner of the folded paper upward to form a boat-like shape.
Flip the entire sheet over.
Fold down the left and right corners.
Take the bottom left and right corners and fold them back up.
Try folding the area between the two ears to create that wonderful 3D design.
Use scissors to cut out the bat's ears and wings.
It might take a little practice, but remember, practice makes perfect, and you'll get the hang of it in no time!
Mercurius materials are an excellent choice for this craft. We love Mercurius because they are the leading supplier to Waldorf schools worldwide.
