This is a great project to get your kids excited about rock painting as it’s a beginner level one and the end result is really, really sweet.

If you are making this one as a Haloween craft, make sure to give the bats huge fangs – making them into vampire bats (a drop of red on fangs will make it even cooler).

It’s a short project, so it’s great for the classroom too – really frugal if you have a chance to pick up stones near you.
