These pillow box bats are the perfect Halloween craft and gift for kids this year. Fill them with candy, or non-candy treats to hand out to friends and family.
Disclosure: I am participating in the HERSHEY’S BOO BLVD. campaign via Mom Bloggers Club. This post was sponsored by HERSHEY’S.
Each year before Halloween I make a fun gift with the kids that they can hand out to friends in their classroom at school.
This year I am a contributor to HERSHEY’S BOO BLVD on Celebrate with HERSHEY’S and was asked to create a Halloween craft. Of course, I wanted our craft to be inspired by HERSHEY’S candy and had to be easy enough for kids to help with, after all, they are going to be handing it out so it’s important for them to be a part of the creative process too.
This year they will be handing out these pillow box bat treat boxes:
Aren’t they adorable? Not ‘scary’ Halloween at all, and perfect for little ones.
What you need:
- Black pillow boxes
- Sturdy black card (not completely stiff, you want to be able to fold it in half)
- Pencil or marker (for writing on the black card)
- Googly eyes
- Craft glue
- Your favorite Hershey’s candy (pillow boxes are the perfect size for snack-sized candy)
Assemble your pillow boxes.
Fold the black card. Place the pillow box on the black card at the crease (half on and half off). Draw a bat wing on the card.
Cut the bat wing out. You can use this as your template for all other bat wings required. Trace each one and cut them out.
Apply craft glue down the center crease of each bat wing and attach it to the back of each pillow box.
Glue googly eyes onto each bat. Set aside to dry.
Once dry, fill with your favorite HERSHEY’S snack size candy, or like I did, with REESE’S PIECES.
I think the kids are going to love our little bat treat boxes.
