Directions

  1. Step 1: Print and cut

    Print out the Nick Jr. Valentine's Day Decorations printable on plain copy paper on a color printer. To make a double-sided mobile, print two sets of printables. Cut out the pieces you and your preschooler want to hang from the ribbon. To personalize your mobile, add some of your own photos to the mix.

  2. Step 2: Glue pieces to ribbon

    Lay the ribbon you're using on a flat surface to easily arrange and glue the printables and/or photos onto the ribbon. Start from the top and be sure to leave enough room to make a loop for hanging. If making a double-sided mobile, glue pieces down on one side before turning over and gluing identical shape to the other side.

  3. Step 3: Tie a loop at the top and finish the bottom

    When all of the pieces are glued onto the ribbon, allow time to dry before creating a loop at the top and finishing the bottom. We used a large red bead at the bottom. Otherwise, just make a knot at the bottom to finish the piece. Hang from doorknobs or ceilings to decorate your home in time for Valentine's Day.

Tip: For quick assembly, print all of the stickers the night before.
