Bat in the Moon A Fun Halloween Painting

Bats are one of our favorite subjects at this time of the year. We are always watching movies, reading books and learning about them. Plus they are always cool to see at night as well.

We wanted to have some fun with bats this year for Halloween. So we picked out our favorite bat book and came up with this fun bat in the moon craft

Today’s craft is a twist on the washi tape moon with did but with watercolor for the moon.

One of our favorite books about bats is Stellaluna. We have read it for years. I love reading about how the bat tries to be a bird and how different things are.

We decide to do a bat craft to go with this book. Our Stellaluna flying at night.

How to Make the Craft

First, we painted our moons with the yellow glitter watercolors. I have regular watercolors in case they change their minds about what they wanted to paint with but we never ended up using them. After we finished we set them aside to dry.

Next we used the yellow oil pastel to mark little yellow starts on the black glitter cardstock.

After the moon was dry we cut it out. It was fun to see to glitter on the moon and how it shinned a little bit.

Then we glued on the moon the black glitter cardstock. Make sure you cover the whole moon to help it stay better on glitter cardstock.

Finally, we held the bat cookie cutter in place and painted it on the moon where we wanted it. You want to make sure you are holding the cookie cutter tight so it does not move.
