Bat Sucker

When I was young I remember making a bat sucker like this for Halloween. I remember it being an easy craft, quick and fun to make. I thought I could give my Little Chefs a chance to give it a try.Bat suckers are quick to make. They make a great addition to your halloween food and halloween decorations.

Bat Sucker


  • black construction paper
  • scissors
  • orange ribbon
  • black ribbon
  • black spoon
  • 2 googly eyes
  • sucker

First, use a bowl as a guide for your circle shape. Trace around the bowl, then cut out the circle. Fold the circle in half, then cut along the line to create two halves.

Using a 2″ circle punch cut a hole at the top of the bat wings. Keep the circle to use for the ears. Cut the circle in half. Cut out two ears from one half of the circle as shown.

To create the fangs cut out a square from a piece of white construction paper as shown. Attach with glue to the back of the spoon under the googly eyes. Attach the ears to the front of the spoon which will stick up over the spoon.

Slip your sucker stick under the ribbon on the front side of the spoon. Slip your bat wings between the sucker stick and the spoon as shown.Bat SuckerFlip the spoon over and you are finished! This Bat Sucker ended up being easy and quick to make. Each bat is unique but that is what is fun. This is an easy last minute school favor or party idea students can make on their own in 10 minutes or less.

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
