This origami bat is a straightforward model - but it does cheat by using a pair of scissors, which is not strictly allowed! The traditional origami bat model is quite tricky to fold so we have simplified it to produce this one which is great for children to fold but still very effective.
Have fun at Halloween with these Halloween origami models, which are arranged (roughly) in order of difficulty. You will find suggestions for using your Halloween origami below...
- Make the models as a "quiet" activity at a Halloween party
- Decorate the table for Halloween with a selection of models. Use them for place-names, as napkin rings (attach to a loop of card), or just scattered about
- Make a Halloween bookmark, card or invitation
- Make a Halloween mobile or diorama, using thread to hand your creations
- Decorate the fridge or class notice-board with a collection of spooky origami figures
- Make a banner by stapling the models to string or ribbon.
We have quite a collection of these little cats flying around on the front of our fridge on broomsticks at the moment! They make the perfect witch's cat for Halloween, but are cute enough to be enjoyed all year round.
These origami mummy heads are very easy to fold, and look spectacular (or should we say spooktacular!) As each one comes out slightly different, they are quite addictive to fold, too.
