Kitchen Carnival Bat wings

You can mix and match these wings with the silver, black or white Bat masks for the Kitchen Carnival, depending on what you have available. If you can, wear clothes in a matching colour. Bats’ fingers are part of their wings, but they use their thumbs to grip with. If you want to, you can cover your hands with socks and hold a spoon in each hand to make your own Bat thumbs.

Once you’ve made your wings, it’s time to create a Bat dance or take a selfie. Create your own sound track with our Kitchen Carnival percussion instruments – there are also some Bat-themed songs linked here. Bats sleep – ‘roost’ – by hanging upside down with their wings folded. Once you are in full costume, ask someone to help you take a selfie in the kitchen with your arms folded and eyes shut. Turn it upside down to see yourself roost, and send it to us to join our Carnival roost:
