“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Craft Project: Halloween Bats

Time for some Halloween crafts! This is one of my favorites--take a toilet paper roll and paint it black, and while it's drying, use black construction paper to cut out some wings and ears. You can also use white paper to cut out two little fangs. Once dry, glue googly eyes and construction paper parts to the painted toilet paper roll. If you have any magnetic tape you can cut two little squares of magnetic tape and peel off the adhesive and stick it to the ends of the wings so you can make the bat's wings close around it's body if you'd like. Rowan drew a mouth and designs on hers with crayons and chalk too. This is fun for preschool-age kids, and when finished, you can either hang them from the ceiling or let the kids run around with them!
