Bat playdough, a great way
to explore these nocturnal night time fliers.Through a combination of dough,
paper straws, craft stems and scissors, model makers can recreate
the framework that makes up a bat's wing structure and enables them flight!
Fun facts and books will help to demonstrate what they look like, how wings work and introduce these little insect eating natives
during daylight hours! Usborne book of Bats
Halloween is a fun time of the year when bat's are brought
into focus, sadly not always in the most positive way. Bats.org is a valuable
soucrce of information for promoting what goes on in the life of individuals, their
colonies and what you can do to help protect them - aboutbats
the printables to raise awareness of bats, a creature young children might
not know even exists. Use tracing, Dot-to-Dot line drawing on the paper printouts
or if laminated, chalk pens are ideal at adding fine detail, roll ropes of
playdough, cut differing lengths of paper drinking straws and crafts stems,
securing the structures to the picture using 'joints' of ball rolled dough.
species living in and visiting the UK enjoy getting to know them:)
