Bat Party Favors

By Cindy Hopper

This bat party favor container is a cute way to gift Halloween candy. How fun to use them as treats for a classroom party. They are super simple for kids to make for each other.

Bat Party Favor Supplies

For each bat favor container you will need one toilet paper roll. These rolls can be recycled from your home or found at a craft store. You will also need black paint, a foam paint brush, googly eyes, black construction paper, a tape roller or glue and scissors.

Paint the cardboard toilet paper roll and allow to completely dry. We used acrylic paint but washable tempera paint also works.

Cut out a bat shape wing. Fold the paper in half to make it easy to cut the wings symmetrically. Kids will actually be able to do this quite well and give each bat it’s own unique personality. If you have a more timid crafter a template can be cut to get them them going.

Once the toilet paper roll has dried, fold in the top edges of the toilet paper roll.

Use the tape roller or glue to attach the wings to the back of the cardboard tube. Glue on the eyes and you have one cute party favor bat!
