Instructions for making Halloween Bat Craft
Step 1: Start by painting the front of your paper bag with your black paint. Let it dry. When your paint is finished drying, turn your paper bag over and draw the shape of bat ears on the back of your paper bag with a pencil. Then cut it out.
Step 2: Cut up strips of newspaper, crumple them up and stuff your paper bag with them. When it’s full, close the top of your bag, lining up the bat ears and then staple it shut.
