STEP 2: Fold the bat treat bag

Once you have all your supplies, it's time to get started! Below you will find details for making your own paper bag. If folding your own bag looks a little complicated for your child, you could of course buy a premade paper bag and just enjoy turning it into a bat using our template. (If you are doing this go straight to step 3)

To make your own paper bag start by cutting out a rectangular piece from your paper - approximately 12.5inches x 7inches. Take one end and fold it horizontally, leaving about half an inch from the edge as shown below.

Then, apply glue along the half inch strip and fold it over the edge of the paper.

Next, take the bottom 2 inches and fold it up and then pull outwards along the edges to create an open flap. Then,  press down and fold as shown below (you should be left with triangle shapes on each end).

Next, grab the top and fold towards the centre crease and repeat for the bottom side - overlapping the top side. Apply glue to keep the bottom of the bag in place.

Fold the right and left sides of the bag inward by about an inch - making sure they align with the bottom of the bag.

STEP 3: Attach the bat wings

Trace and cut out the bat wing patterns from the bat template onto grey cardstock and then glue the wings onto the creases on the sides of the treat bag.

STEP 4: Glue the remaining details

After gluing the wings on, arrange and glue the remaining shapes to create your bats face. Allow the glue to dry before using your bat treat bag! 

Enjoy being creative and coming up with your own unique bat craft designs. You could even add piece of ribbon or card across the top to create a handle for your Halloween treat bag.
