This is a fantastic kid-friendly project. And it can stay out where they can see it and be super proud of their contribution to the holiday decor. It’s easy, cheap and quick. Perfect for the attention span and dexterity of a two year old…
Here’s the How:
– Vinyl Bat Cut-Outs
– A lamp shade
1. We used the $13 Target lamp that resides in our living room as our canvas. I cut out some bat shapes in various sizes from vinyl with my Cricut (love that thing).
2. Little Monkey went to town putting the bats on the lamp shade. He LOVES stickers and the black vinyl was basically that. He was in heaven. I had to help him position some of the bats; but, for the most part, he did it himself. He loves to look at it and often points out “Momma, BATS!” (I had to explain to him what a bat was. Surprisingly, for the amount of attention he paid while I was explaining, he seemed to comprehend it fairly well.)
Go get Batty!
