These bat hats are really easy to make with the printable templates and they’re easy to adjust to fit different head sizes from little kids to grown ups. A great Halloween craft for kids or if you are studying bats or nocturnal animals at any time of year.
We’ve made ours as Halloween bat hats in black and purple but you can make them in any colour you like. The eyes, smile and bat fangs are all glued on so kids can stick them in different positions to make each bat hat craft have an unique expression. So fun!
We’ve always been bat fans and love bat watching in the evenings when we can. This printable bat hat craft goes so well with our other favourite bat crafts like Handprint Bats, Paper Plate Bat Puppets, Bat Mobile and cute Pom Pom Bats. So many crafts to go totally batty over!

- Black or Purple Cardstock
1 – Download and print the free bat hat craft templates. (There are two sheets.)
2 – Carefully cut out the bat hat template pieces.
3 – Keep the bat’s fangs, mouth and eyes aside and trace around the 4 large pieces onto your black cardstock.
4 – Glue the bat’s face onto the bat’s head.
5 – Staple the bat’s head onto the long strip to make a loop to sit on your head. Staple one end and then wrap it around your head to get the right size before stapling the other side.
6 – Finish off your bat hat craft by stapling on the bat’s wings.
Now your bat hats are ready to wear! Try tapping the wings or jumping up and down to see them flap! How much fun! Let us know how you use your bat headbands. Will it be as a Halloween craft or maybe for a school production costume? We love hearing from you!
