#FlannelFriday: Five Little Bats

This week, I was looking for a simple flannel set to use during my nocturnal animals story time. My books were about honey badgers and raccoons, so I wanted another nighttime animal. A quick search of Pinterest led me to the bats that Miss Meghan from Busy Crafting Mommy made. I liked hers and they looked simple enough to make.

I was able to locate a coloring sheet similar to the one she used. (I love that you can just type in "bat coloring page" to Google Image Search and find what you're looking for.) I cut my bats from black belt and outlined them with silver puff paint. I don't think it's my best work with puff paint, but they'll do. I've got a couple of rhymes found on various story time sites to use with them.

Whew! I admire your dedication to using puff paint. I just can't seem to make it work for me. :o(

Your bats are great! Good job!

I hope you have a relaxing weekend!

I'm also in awe of anyone who can do such detailed work with puffy paint. Nice job!
