Going Batty

Look what just landed on your pumpkin. No paintbrush (or paint!) required.

Supplies:

  • Paper and pencil
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
  • Permanent Chisel Tip Sharpie in black


Instructions:
1. Draw a bat design on any scrap of paper; cut it out. For this project, stick to classic icons that are easier to recognize–and draw. (We also like ghosts, cats, and spiders!)

2. Tape the paper template to the pumpkin.

3. Trace your “stencil” with the marker. Then remove the paper and color within the lines using that same permanent marker.
