Five Little Bats Hanging From A Tree…

Halloween is so close…it’s scary!!!  Time for just one more Halloween craft and this one is for the little guys.  Cut out the ghost and bats below to act out this fun song:

Five little bats were hanging from a tree,
Teasing Mr. Ghost saying, “You can’t catch me, you can’t catch me!”
Along came Mr. Ghost as quiet as can be…
He said, “Boo!” scaring that bat right out of the tree.
Four little bats were hanging from a tree…
Three little bats…etc.

This ghost is a great way to practice cutting with the younger kids.  They work wonderfully as decorations and you can hang them up for a really nice effect.  Bring this song to life with a tree.  Click on the picture to go to the template.

Cut out these five bats on black construction paper.  Hang the five bats (upside down of course!) from a tree (you can make that too) and have your kids use the ghost to scare those bats, one by one, out of that tree.  Click on the picture to go to the template.
