How to Make a Halloween Paper Roll Bat
1. Start by measuring and cutting out a piece of paper that will fit your toilet paper roll.
2. Glue or tape the paper around your paper roll.
You can also paint the paper roll the color of your choice.

4. Cut out 2 small triangles for the bat ears and glue to the top front of the paper roll.
5. Glue on 2 googly eyes for the eyes.
We used two slightly different sizes to make the bat look a little different. But you can use any size you’d like!
6. Cut out 2 white fangs from white paper or cardstock.
We made the fangs slightly different sizes just like the eyes but you can make them as big or as little as you’d like!
7. Your toilet paper roll bats are now finished!
Add some string to them and kids can pretend to make them fly, or you can hang them up!
