Helping Bats Bat Houses! They are cheap and so easy to build that they make an excellent project to do with the kids! As you know, there is more to being a parent than getting the kids to school and soccer practice. There are many projects suitable for parents to do with their children and this particular project will continue to be an educational adventure after completed! Free plans There are tons of free plans available for building a bat house in your back yard. You get the benefit of bats eating the bugs that bite you – plus the opportunity to teach your kids to be a part of this world – and they have a better chance to live and raise their babies. So this is what we’re going to do – Paws will post some links to free bat house plans for you and then, just in case those pages get removed or replaced later, we’ll save the files here as well. Let us know how your bat house turns out! www.nwf.org Free plans to build a Bat House – from the National Wildlife Federation!
