egg carton bat


  • Egg Carton (Cardboard kind is preferred)
  • Brown/Black Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • (2) Googly Eye's
  • Scissors
  • Orange Ribbon




  1. After you've gathered your Supplies you will want to cut the Egg Carton into 4 sections, Then take your scissors and cut up around to create the "Wings".
  2. After that, Take the paint brush and paint it! I used a Plastic egg carton, But I prefer a Cardboard type. It will work better with the paint. After the paint has dried you will want to paste the googly Eye's on to the Middle egg "hole" where you didn't cut. 
  3. Next,  poke two holes to run the ribbon threw the tops where you pasted the eyes with.
  4. Lastly, Run the Ribbon threw and tie a knot!
  5. Your Done! It might sounded hard, But I enjoyed every minute of it. It didn't take much time at all. I think this would be a great School craft or just a craft with your kids! I know they would enjoy it.
