What you'll need is an empty egg carton and some black paint.  I was going to try and make some other things with this picture, but only was able to make the bats.

One bat is three egg holders so, one carton will make four bats.

Cut the two outside egg holders to make them look like bat wings on both the front and back.

I was going to have my son help me with the painting, but he wasn't really interested in helping me.  I ended up putting about two coats on the outside and one on the inside.  Once they were dried, I glued on googlie eyes.  Right now, I just have them placed throughout the house, but will eventually put string at the top of the bats to hang them.
