Vampire bat

Here's a great way to make a Bat Mobile. No – not the car that Batman uses to drive around Gotham city – a mobile with paper bats dangling from it!

You will need:

  • a small branch or stick
  • some black paint (optional)
  • black card or construction paper
  • a scissors
  • glue
  • thread
  • garlic to keep the vampires away!


  1. Paint the branch black (optional)
  2. Make your bats by folding the paper in half. Draw the bats body and wingspan on each side and carefully cut them out, under adult supervision.
  3. Make a small hole through the centre of each bat with a drawing pin or scissors (be careful!).
  4. Use the thread to hang the bats off the branches of your mobile and but it on a curtain rail or window frame where the bats will dangle in the breeze.
