How we made our Bats:
1. Instead of just using regular black paper for the wings, we wanted to create some texture to them, so we started by gluing black tissue squares all over a piece of white cardstock paper and let it dry completely. My daughter loves using the tissue paper squares so we seem to use them often.
2. Once it was dry, I turned it over and traced a bat wing pattern on the back of it for all of our wings. (I just free-handed the bat wing on a separate piece of paper to use for our pattern.)
3. Cut out all of the wings, lay them out, and brush some school glue on the front of them with a paint brush. Then sprinkle purple glitter all over them. You can dump any excess glitter into the trash can.
If you are looking for a simpler way of creating this craft with a larger group, you can skip out on the tissue paper wings and just use black paper sprinkled with the glitter (or leave out the glitter entirely).
