Airplanes aren’t the only things that can fly. With just a sheet of black construction paper and a little bit of imagination, you can create your own bats that really fly! Make these for Halloween or anytime because bats are cool all year.
How to make a paper bat that really flies
Start with a rectangular piece of construction paper or even cardstock. 8.5″x11″ or this one is 9″x12″. Fold in half width-wise and open back up.
Now fold each side in towards the center fold.
Next, fold out the sides like this:
Then fold the corners down like you do on a traditional paper airplane
Now turn over. Fold the top point down to the bottom.
Next, fold the corners down like this:
Now fold the point back up, it should cover up the 2 corners you just folded. Then turn over.
Fold the point down again and then fold in half width wise (you’re almost done!)
Fold one of the wings down leaving a bit at the bottom to hold on to. Do the same to the other side and you’re done!
These bats will fly during the day or at night!
