Since Halloween is coming up, I thought it would be fun to make a handprint bat craft with my son. Easy to make and it works on several skills for school!

Halloween kid craft: handprint bat craft

When kids work on this craft, they will be improving on the following skills:

Handprint Bat Craft Instructions


  • Black construction paper
  • Blue construction paper
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Glue – either the glue stick or Elmer’s works. We used both so the paper didn’t have ripples but used Elmer’s for the eyes
  • Googly eyes (2)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil


Step 1: Have your child place their hand on the black construction paper and using the pencil (or chalk) trace around their hands. Repeat with the opposite hand.

Step 2: Cut the hands out.

Step 3: Cut a circle for the body of the bat and a smaller one for the head out of the black construction paper. However, make sure the size of the head fits the googly eyes.

Step 4: Cut a moon out of the yellow construction paper.

Step 5: Glue the moon onto your blue construction paper.

Step 6: Glue the hands onto the blue construction paper. Leave a gap for the body.

Step 7: Glue the body between the hands.

Step 8: Glue the head on top of the body.


Step 9: Glue the googly eyes onto the head.

All done!
