If you are searching for printable bat pumpkin carving patterns, you can find several great ones online for free.
Free Bat Pumpkin Carving Patterns: Hanging Upside Down
The Martha Stewart website has a free spooky bat pumpkin carving pattern of the creature hanging upside down.
One could either use the design as a cut out silhouette or as a ink-colored silhouette. An ink-colored silhouette is a unique idea, but will probably be more time consuming.
If you are interested in using the printable bat stencil for an ink-colored silhouette, the Martha Stewart site provides directions on how to do just that and also shows a neat picture of the finished product.

This stencil comes in a free package of 48 patterns that must be downloaded as a PDF file. Once you have downloaded the PDF file, you should be able to print them out.

Free Bat Pumpkin Carving Patterns: Full Moon 2
If you don’t want to have to download the 48 pattern PDF file from the extreme site, then you can take a look at the free stencil eHow offers. It is a very similar design of the two creatures flying in front of a full moon.
This version also comes with instructions on how to use it if you need that. This would be good to use for a kid-friendly project.

Free Bat Pumpkin Carving Patterns: Spooky
The website Better Homes and Gardens also has a printable spooky bat stencil.
This one is a simple design of the creature with its wings spread open. It would be an easy one for kids to use.
The only downside to this one is that you have to first register with the Better Homes and Garden site to get the printable version. Registration is free, but not everyone likes to give out their personal information.
Once registration is completed, it should be available to print out.
Then, just attach it to a pumpkin and trace around the figure. The black areas of the design will be the areas that will be cut out.
