Upside-Down Bats

I love open-ended projects for children. It’s fun to see where their ideas will take them.

So, this year for our Halloween decorations, I pulled out some basic stencils, good-quality colored pencils and card stock.

See last year’s Halloween decorations here.

We started with a basic bat stencil. Then ev decided the bats should hang upside down, wings tucked.IMG_5431

I thought that was so much more interesting than my original vision of upright bats, wingspan spread across a string!IMG_5430

The books in the photo I checked out from our local library; I discovered the titles from this great Halloween booklist.
