If your kids love painting on rocks, or are just beginning their rock painting adventure have them give these bat painted rocks a try!
It’s a great Halloween craft to do with the kids and an easy one at that.
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.
Any fan of bats will love making this craft, especially in fall where bats are easily observed at evening and night.
Once you make your first, you won’t be able to stop and soon you will end up with cauldron of bats (this is what a group of bats is called!)
So are you ready to craft with us?
How to Make the Bat Painted Rocks
What you need:
- acrylic color of your choice
- googly eyes
- a color paper matching the acrylic color
- a color paper of your choice (we used yellow one)
- white cardstock
- hot glue
- circle object
Step by Step Instructions
Take one rock and cover it in acrylic color.
We used black for our bat. Let the color dry.
Take two googly eyes and attach them on the rock using hot glue.
On the white cardstock draw a tiny mouth with two sharp teeth showing.
Cut the mouth out using scissors.
Apply some hot glue and glue the mouth on the bat’s body.
Draw two small wings. We used black cardstock for the wings.
Cut out the wings and glue them on the back of the body using hot glue.
On the yellow cardstock draw a circle using the circle object.
Cut out the circle.
Attach the bat to the circle by applying hot glue on the back of the bat.
All done here!
