Since S is going to be a bat for Halloween, we have been talking /reading/looking at pictures of bats. I made this bat for him the other day. I just cut out a bat shape (it looks more like a flying squirrel) from black construction paper and taped it to a popsicle stick. When you gently wave it up and down, the wings flap. I guess I have told him "gentle" with it too many times because if you ask him what it is he says, "gentle."
