Before we get to the bat crafts, let me give one gentle reminder. Crafting with kids is more about the process than the final product. Don’t be tempted to force them to follow certain rules or directions, let the activity be a guide but the child should make the decisions. That means it’s okay if your bats aren’t black. It’s okay if your child doesn’t cut on the lines or wants a bat with 50 googly eyes instead of 2.
