Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.

Deciding which bat crafts to make for your Halloween décor is a lot easier when the crafts come with tutorials. And if you are looking for bat crafts for kids to make, it’s nice to have easy-to-understand directions.

By doing a thorough Google search, I found many bat crafts that have the instructions or directions included. I was really surprised to find so many great ideas for making bat projects.
