A cool decorative mobile…filled with fun fall shapes!

This activity is appropriate for:
pre-k - 2nd grade / 4 - 7 years

You will need:

Directions

  1. Have students tie the branches together in the middle, forming an “X” shape. Show them how to wrap the yarn tightly around the juncture several times so that it is secure.
  2. Encourage students to trace each template onto two pieces of construction paper and cut them out. If desired, students can decorate each shape.
  3. Help students place the matching shapes back-to-back and staple them together around the edges, leaving one side open.
  4. Prompt students to stuff the shapes with tissue or newspaper through the openings they’ve left.
  5. Staple the openings closed.
  6. Have students punch a hole in the top of each 3-D shape and thread a piece of yarn through each hole.
  7. Direct students to use the yarn to tie one shape to the end of each twig.
  8. Hang up the mobiles for everyone to enjoy!
