 This bat pumpkin craft is the perfect decoration for Halloween! It’s easy and fun to make.  It is a perfect craft for children.  The one pictured above was made by my 3-year-old daughter.  As you can see she got a little carried away with the black paint.  That’s ok, though we will remove it from the plate when it drys.  Did I mention to make sure your child paints the pumpkin on a plate or piece of cardboard (you’ll thank me later)?

Materials needed: Pumpkin(real or plastic), black paint, black foam sheet, googly eyes, white foam sheet or construction paper, glue, paintbrush, tape, toothpicks, scissors

*foam sheets are available at any craft store or Walmart 

Step 1:  Set your pumpkin on a paper plate or a piece of cardboard.  Paint your pumpkin black.   Let your pumpkin dry.  move on to step 2 while you are waiting for your pumpkin to dry.

Step 2: Cut black foam sheet into the shape of bat wings and triangles for ears.

Step 3: Tape one toothpick to the back of each triangle and two to the back of each bat wing.

Step 4: Push toothpicks into the pumpkin to attach wings and ears.

Step 5: Cut out two circles from the white foam sheet or construction paper.

Step 6: Glue one googly eye to each white circle.

Step 7: Glue completed eyes onto the pumpkin.
