Starting at the folded sided of the paper, draw one bat wing with a pencil. The start and finish of the bat wing should be on the fold. Artzooka Bat Use scissors to cut along the lines you drew. 3 6 Unfold the wing. You now have two bat wings. Neat! 5 4 7 89 10 13 12 11 14 15 16 18 19 20 17 To make the bat’s body, use any type of clay or dough. You can also make the body by mixing glue and cornstarch together. Place the paper wings on an empty plastic bottle. Trace all the way around the wings with a black marker. Discard the paper wings. Break off a piece of dough, and roll it in your hands to make a skinny bat body. Place the body on a modelling mat so it doesn’t stick to the table. Break off another piece of dough and roll it in your hands. Make the dough as long as the bat’s body, but skinnier. Twist a twist tie into a loop, then poke the tie into the top of the bat’s head between the ears, with the loop sticking out the top. When you are done making the bat, you can hang it up by the loop. Ask an adult to help you cut out the wings! To make cutting easier, first cut out a huge chunk of bottle around the wings, then cut along the wings’ lines. Break off another piece of dough to make the bat’s head. Roll the dough around in your hands to make a ball. Squish the ball gently onto the top of the body. Turn the bat’s body over on the modelling mat, then place the wings onto the bat’s back. When the bat is dry, paint its body with dark purple and light purple paint. Use white paint for the bat’s eyes. Paint a couple of dark purple lines from the top of the bat’s wing to the bottom. The lines look like the bones in the bat’s wing! Paint dark purple lines on the other wing. Set aside to dry. Put a piece of yarn through the bat’s loop, and hang your bat in a window or wear it like a necklace! Upload pictures of what YOU make at cbc.ca/kids/games/artzooka To make bat ears, break off two really small pieces of dough and shape them into points. Attach the ears to the bat’s head. Place the long skinny piece of dough down the middle of the wings along the crease. Gently push the skinny ends into the bat’s body as this is what keeps the wings attached. Use your fingers to shape and smooth the bat’s body. Let the bat dry for two days. Now, to make the bat’s wings look cool! Mix white glue into the two different shades of purple paint. Use a smaller paintbrush (The glue will help the paint stick to the plastic wings.) to outline the bat’s wings Paint the front of the wings with light purple paint. with dark purple paint. Fold the bat wings in half to make a crease down the middle. Set aside. Try making another Artzooka dough creature, like a butterfly. Don’t they look cool?
