Here is the list of the material you will need to make your batarang:

batarang and circle print out (right click and then click print picture)

cardboard box

black duct tape


hole puncher

utility knife or something that will cut threw cardboard

hot glue gun

Step 2: Cut Out the Bat and Circle

Next, you will need to use the scissors, and cut out the bat shape and the circle.

Step 3: Hole Punching

After that, you will need to take the hole puncher, and punch out the small circles as shown in the picture.

Step 4: Tracing the Bat

Now, you will take the bat picture and using the pen, trace two bats onto the cardboard.

Step 5: Cutting Out the Bats

After you have the bat traced on the cardboard, take the utility knife (or the cutting tool you're using) and cut the shapes out of it.

Step 6: Tracing on the Small Circles

Now, you need to take the bat paper cutout and place it evenly on top of one of the cardboard pieces and trace the circles onto the cardboard bat.

Next, you will take your hole puncher again and hole punch out the small circles on the cardboard.

Step 9: Tracing the Circles

Now, take the paper circle and trace two of them onto the cardboard.

Now, take the hot glue gun again and glue the two scircles onto the center of the cardboard bat.

Step 12: Putting on the Duct Tape

    hey man this was really helpful!! Oh and would grip tape be better than duct tape?

    It wasn't duct tape, it's actually electrical tape. I wish I had a roll.

    I like it but it would be better if you spray panted it

    it would look a little cleaner, but the tape gives it its weight.

    I used foam poster board instead of cardboard. Cool Design! Like from Arkham Asylum

    i can throw it pretty accurately i use them instead of dodgeballs and play with my brother and throw them at each other. When I throw them,they go up to about 35 ft. I also hit my dog from the top of my apartment when he was on the sidewalk

    The parent in me says "be careful". My inner child is louder, though, and says "awesome!".
