What you need for a Dancing Bats and Spiders Halloween Kids Craft

Putting this Spider and Bats craft together is just as easy as 123 – here’s how we did it…
Firstly, paint the wooden rounds. We had some little helpers between the ages of three to seven, so this craft is certainly good for all ages. They all had totally different ways of painting the Halloween critters. When the painting is done, set aside to dry completely.
Secondly, add the felt bat wings and pipe cleaner spider legs, adults should help with this step, as a glue gun should be used to attach the legs and wings to the spiders. Each wooden round will need two pipe cleaners, cut into four pieces each. Cut the black felt into the shape of bat wings then hot glue the wings onto the back of the bat rounds.
If anyone wants to add googly eyes, now’s the time. Use the hot glue gun to stick them on.
Next, paint a stick – donated from a nearby tree – black and then set it aside to dry.
Finally, attach the Halloween critters to the black branch using the clear jewelry wire or fishing line, tie one end to the stick and hot glue the other to a spider or bat. Attach all of the bats and spiders in a likewise fashion until they are all hanging.
Watch these Halloween critters dance!!
