    Origami Bat Craft

    Origami Bat Craft

    As my kiddos and I prepare for the upcoming Halloween holiday, my daughter and I have been hard at work making all sorts of fun crafts. After delving into the world of origami, she and I recently made some folded paper bats.

    Step 1

    Fold the paper square in half diagonally and crease.

    Fold back each corner and crease. The second crease should be parallel to the first.
