This easy bat craft project for kids makes upcycling fun! Crafting is a great way to spend a chilly, October afternoon. With Halloween quickly approaching, getting into the spooky spirit of the holiday is a fun activity to keep kids busy. Crafting is always a lot more eco-friendly when you can take things you find around your home and turn them into something new. Not to mention the money you save on expensive ‘craft kits’ sold at a lot of specialty stores! This creepy little egg carton bat is a fun upcycled craft for Halloween. You will only need a few simple supplies other than a cardboard egg carton so it shouldn’t cost too much to get started. If you are looking for easy Halloween crafts for kids, why not teach them a lesson about upcycling at the same time?
