A fun recycled craft activity for kids of any age: egg carton bats. Great for Halloween. Younger children may need some help along the way, but older kids should be able to complete from scratch.

Cut an arch shape out of each of the side egg cups, these will become the bats wings. Also use the sharp part of a pair of scissors to make a hole in the middle of egg cup (younger children will need assistance here).

Decorate the bat. We used glitter mixed with PVA glue, which dries clear so you only see the glitter. We used sequins and some children used stickers.

Finally stick on two googly eyes, and thread a piece of wool or string through the middle hole and tie in a knot underneath (younger children will need assistance here).
