Weekend Fun: Flying Bats!

Weekend Fun: Flying Bats!

One week until Halloween!

Start the Halloween fun early by coming to the Robert Rogers Puppet Company’s presentation of Hobnobbin’ Goblins, a slightly spooky but never scary marionette puppet show that will be held outdoors at the Gazebo next to the Main Library on DeMott Lane. After the show, stop inside to select some Halloween books that will make you laugh or give you the shivers or both! Librarians will be on hand to help you find what you need.

Get ready for Halloween with this easy Flying Bat puppet craft! A limited number of kits for this craft are available at the Main Library during Halloween week.

What you need:

  • one piece of black paper (or white paper colored black)
  • straw or cardboard strip (for a handle)
  • scissors
  • white paper scraps
  • glue stick
  • crayons

What you do:

  1. Fold the black paper in half.
  2. On the fold, draw half of a bat body with wing. (see photo below)
  3. Cut along the lines you drew and open to reveal – a bat!
  4. Cut out two eyes or trace a coin twice and cut out the circles – these are the bat’s eyes.
  5. Glue them in place.
  6. Add a nose (cut out or drawn directly onto the face.
  7. Cut tiny triangles and glue in place for the teeth (or draw directly on the bat).
  8. Tape a straw or a cardboard strip for the handle to make your bat fly!
