We’re always trying to find fun ways to send in snacks for my son’s special snack day each month for preschool. This month he wanted to do something that was a Halloween theme. We’ve seen the butterfly clothespin craft as a snack idea and gave it a little Halloween twist. Just pick out your favorite snack and using just a few supplies you can make these fun Clothespin Bat Snack Bags. These bat snack bags are perfect for your child’s classroom Halloween party, or just for fun!

Supplies I used to make the Clothespin Bat Snack Bags:
- Black Card Stock Paper
- Googly Eyes
- Black Pipe Cleaner
- Washi Tape
- Snack Bags
- Your choice of snacks
To begin, you’ll want to take your washi tape and cover your clothespins. Fold the excess around or trim it off. If you don’t want to use washi tape you can also paint your clothespins the day before you do this activity so that they have time to dry.
Next take your black card stock paper and cut out your wings. Just make sure to make them a little bigger than the size of your snack bags.
Then I took a hot glue gun and glued the decorated clothespin to the bats wing we cut out. You can also glue on some googly eyes in this step too.
Finally pick out your choice of snacks and fill your snack bag up. Pinch it in the middle and insert it between your clothespin like the image above. If you’d like to add some ears you can take black pipe cleaners and bend them into their shape, then glue them onto your bats wings.
