Bats

1) First download the Country Living template HERE.
2) Use black cardstock or construction paper. Walmart carries cardstock (50 sheets) for about $4.
3) Print the bat image and cut it out. If your printer is out of ink, simply hold a piece of paper up to your computer screen and softly trace it.

Materials
• Orange card stock (A4 or Letter size) or orange construction paper (9 x 12 inches)
• Green construction paper
• Scissors
• Glue
• Hole punch
• Green pipe cleaner

1. Fold and cut cardstock into 12 equal sections to come up with 8 roughly 1-inch wide strips.
2. Take 4 paper strips. Grab a pair and glue them together on one end to create a super long strip. Similarly, glue the 2 remaining strips together to create a 2nd long strip.
3. Position the 2 long strips into a cross pattern and glue them together at the center.
4. Glue the remaining short strips into a clock like pattern from the center of the cross.
5. Hole punch the ends of each strip to make a spot for the stem.
6. Use a small piece of rolled green construction paper (small enough to fit the hole punch) to create a stem.
