Life-Like Flying Bats

They flap, they spin, they look like a flock of REAL bats flying around your ceiling!

Iíve tried several different versions but this is the only pattern that would make the bats look like they were really flying.


  • Black construction paper (or card stock)
  • Scissors
  • Thread & needle
  • Tape
General Instructions

  • Print out pattern. Small | Medium | Large
  • Fold construction paper
  • Lay pattern on fold and cut out your bat.
  • Fold wings back (at line) to the outside of the bat to form an M.
  • Thread needle with a single layer of thread (24-26 inches), then insert thread through bat at the fold.
  • Bring ends of thread together and tie into a knot.
  • Turn off ceiling fan (Caution: wait until fan completely stops!).
  • Tape end of thread to the end of the ceiling fan blade.
  • Turn fan on LOWEST setting and watch your bats fly!
