Most bats only come out at night, but this one isn’t afraid of daytime flights. He’s soaring your way to help teach lowercase letter B at any time of day! Let your preschoolers take wing with this easy ABC Craft, and this bat will fly right into their hearts!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used yellow, black, and white)
  • B Is for Bat Craft templates
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil, white colored pencil, and scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter B Craft

  1. Print the B Is for Bat Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter B, the bat wings, and the fangs onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter B, wings, and fangs.
  4. Glue the letter B onto a full sheet of card stock (we used yellow, but you can use any color you like).
  5. Use a white colored pencil to draw the details on the wings.
  6. Position the wings and fangs under the edge of the letter B and glue in place.
  7. Affix googly eyes above the fangs.
