Bat Paper Wheel

I created this cute bat paper wheel using simple elements. Jack and Luke both helped and it was super quick to make.

Kids can do most of this alone and it’s a great opportunity to work on scissor skills/ fine motor skills.

What you need:

Empty cereal box

Construction paper- purple or blue, yellow, and black.



Round head pin fasteners


Hole punch

Step 1

Use a bowl to trace a circle on your cereal box and then cut out the circle.

Step 2

Use your cereal box circle to trace a circle of the same size in your blue or purple construction paper. Then cut it out.

Step 3

Cut out a strip of cereal box for the spinner. It should be approximately half of your circle. Then use that strip to trace one of the same size  in your construction paper and glue it on.

Step 4

Draw out your bat in black construction paper, cut it our, and glue it to the end of the strip you made above.

Step 5

Draw and cut out the moon and stars in yellow construction paper. Then glue them onto your circle base. 

Step 6

Use a hole punch to make a hole in the end of your strip opposite your bat.

Step 7

Use scissors to cut a hole into the middle of the circle. 

Step 8

Use your round head pin fastener to fix the bat strip in place. 

Spin away!
