Art idea of the week: Bat Mobile
No, not the Batman kind- this kind! =======>
Yes, Halloween is just around the corner, so this week we are gifting you with a step-by-step guide to making your very own bat mobile.
This is a slightly more complicated craft than last week, so if you are doing it with small children you can always simplify the process by just making one bat, and maybe leave out the whole mobile part, as it is fiddly widdly woooooo 👻👻
So grab those left over toilet rolls, and the black card, and let's get cackling 🎃
You will Need:
Paints or felt tips
A black marker pen
Black A4 card
A sharp pokey object
Glue & sellotape
A chopstick or similar sized wooden stick
Take your toilet roll, and draw on a bat face with your marker pen
Next colour in the face with your pens, or paints
Take your black paper and draw a large pair of bat wings
Cut out the bat wings
Attach the wings to your bat body with glue, and extra sellotape if neccessary
Next take your pokey object and make a hole near the top of your toilet roll
Take your string (after having measured out an appropriate length) and loop it through the hole- now your bat is ready to hang!
OPTIONAL EXTRA STEPS:
Make two more bats and attach with string using the same method
Now take your wooden stick and hang all three bats along the stick
Now take another piece of string and tie it securely onto the stick
Find a suitable place (eg light fixture) to hang your mobile.
Now, grab the toffee apples, a red cup of dodgy punch and your even dodgier costume-- YOU ARE READY FOR HALLOWEEN!
