Life-Like Flying Bats

They flap, they spin, they look like a flock of REAL bats flying around your ceiling!

Iíve tried several different versions but this is the only pattern that would make the bats look like they were really flying.

Materials

  • Black construction paper (or card stock)
  • Scissors
  • Thread & needle
  • Tape
General Instructions

  • Print out pattern. Small | Medium | Large
  • Fold construction paper
  • Lay pattern on fold and cut out your bat.
  • Fold wings back (at line) to the outside of the bat to form an M.
  • Thread needle with a single layer of thread (24-26 inches), then insert thread through bat at the fold.
  • Bring ends of thread together and tie into a knot.
  • Turn off ceiling fan (Caution: wait until fan completely stops!).
  • Tape end of thread to the end of the ceiling fan blade.
  • Turn fan on LOWEST setting and watch your bats fly!
