How to Make a Bat Puppet for Halloween


My kids love making puppets and we thought it would be fun to make a bat puppet for Halloween. I have provided a printable cut-out template that includes the bat’s eyes, fangs, tongue, and wings. However, you can also draw your own of any of the parts and attach them to the puppet.

Watch the video or follow the instructions below.
