It all started with the book Stellaluna, which is not really a Halloween story but still seems fitting for this time of year. If you haven't read it, you are missing out! It's about a little bat who is separated from her mother and tries to fit in with the birds. After she is reunited with her mother, she learns that all the things that made her "different" are things that she is supposed to have been doing all along.
After the story we made some handprint bats by folding a piece of black paper in half and tracing a handprint before cutting it out.

Here they come:
There they go!
