To get your preschool class excited for Halloween, consider putting together a bat-themed craft. You can work bats into a number of kids' crafts, such as Halloween cards or mini pumpkins. Whatever craft you organise, make sure to use tools the preschoolers can handle, including safety scissors instead of regular scissors.

Toilet Paper Roll

Give each preschooler an empty toilet paper roll to turn into a small bat. Little ones can cut out two wings from a piece of black paper and tape the wings to the side of the roll so that the toilet paper roll becomes the body. Then kids can draw a bat face at the top of the roll with crayons.


Get a bunch of mini pumpkins from the grocery store and let preschoolers turn them into bats. Kids can cut out bat wings from black construction paper, then tape each wing to a toothpick. The kids can then stick one wing into each side of their pumpkin and draw a face onto the pumpkin with a marker.

Hanging Bats

A hanging bat craft can be made to decorate the preschool classroom. Each student can take a sheet of black paper and trace the outline of a bat stencil or cookie cutter onto the paper. Kids can cut out their bat and tape a piece of yarn to it. When the students are done, hang all the bats from the classroom ceiling.


Help preschoolers make a bat-themed card to give to their parents on Halloween. Let students trace a bat onto a sheet of black paper, using either a stencil or cookie cutter. The students can then cut out the bat and fold it in half, dividing the two wings down the middle. Students can then write their Halloween message inside the card.
