Free Printable Line Study Art
This Halloween bat coloring craft is super cute, so it is fun for the holiday and not at all scary for little ones.
Kids can use the same colors as mine or they can aim for something realistic or a whacky color combination.
It is perfect for Halloween, but can be repurposed as a year round craft for kids who like animals or even as part of a homeschool lesson on bats.
The craft starts with what looks like an ordinary coloring page, but then kids can get creative.
Angled lines are added to the sections with a black marker, so it becomes a unique piece of art.
Your child can use a ruler, if they’d like.
However, the lines don’t have to be “perfect.”
They can be uneven or crooked, which is absolutely fine and only adds character to the art.
This whole process is relaxing and a wonderful way to unwind.
After the lines are complete, the picture is colored in with crayons, markers, paints or pastels.
Then, the edges are trimmed and the completed vampire bat is mounted to black cardstock.
What colors will your child want to use?
Will their bat look like mine or like something completely different?
