Materials

  • Kai-lan Mobile Ornaments
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Hole punch
  • Mobile top options: 4 red/pink pipe cleaners, embroidery hoop, cloth hanger, or paper towel tube
  • Several yards of yarn, string or ribbon, preferably in red/pink

Directions

  1. Get Ready

    Print out Kai-lan Mobile Ornaments. Start cutting out the shapes. This is a great step for older kids to do (using safety scissors) while you get started on the other steps below. Glue the front and back of each image together to create double-sided ornaments. Punch a hole at the top of the ornaments when they are dry.

  2. Make a top for the mobile

    To make a mobile top out of pipe cleaners, cross three pipe cleaners all at their middle points, and wrap each pipe cleaner once around the midpoint of another to fasten the three pipe cleaners together. Now you have a mobile top consisting of six branches.<br><br> You can also make your mobile top out of a paper towel tube or embroidery hoop. If you're using a tube, and you have extra time, have your child paint it first to give it extra flair.

  3. Make the mobile strands

    Cut six strands of yarn, ribbon, or string at various lengths.<br><br> Tie one ornament to the bottom of a strand and tie the strand's top to one branch of the mobile top. Do the same to the remaining five branches. Curl up the six ends of the pipe cleaner to prevent the hanging ornaments from sliding off.

  4. Hang it up!

    Wrap one end of the unused pipe cleaner once around the joint (the center) of the mobile top. Bend the pipe cleaner's top portion to create a circle or a heart shape. Hang it up!
