25 Bat Crafts for Kids

| | | |

Oooh we do adore BATS!! Time for some Bat Crafts for Kids and Bat Crafts for Toddlers! I know some like to refer to them as rats with wings, but I think that that is rather unkind. I think bats are rather adorable. I don’t know what it is about them, but there you go… I am a bat lover! And as a bat lover, I am always on the look out for lovely bat crafts for kids – especially with Halloween around the corner, it is a great time to get bat crafty. It includes all sorts of fabulous Bat Crafts and Bat Printables (part of a great set of Free Halloween Printables!).
