Egg Carton Bats

Here is an easy bat project to do for Halloween.

For this project you will need: an egg carton, black paint and googly eyes.

First cut the egg carton down to just three sections. Cut the two end sections to resemble wings.

Put on a paint shirt and paint it black. I sure am glad I put paint shirts on the girls today. Though we paint an awful lot I think sometimes Mady can not control herself. Today was one of those days. I decided to do the dishes while they painted and when I turned around Mady painted all the way up to her elbows. Solid black. Thank God kids are washable:)

Last I added eyes and a pipe cleaner to hang it. I kept ours pretty simple, but you could add some fangs if you wanted to.


  1. Cute! You have so many great projects!

  2. man i wish we had paper egg cartons still at my stores! we just have clear plastic or styrofoam!

  3. That's awesome! We just did some egg carton Halloween cut-outs, too! I think we cut out bats out a little differently, but that's the beauty of egg cartons, isn't it? They're so darn versatile!


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
