DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Valentine's Day Spiral Mobile
This project includes heart templates to hang
from the spiral mobile. Alternatively, you could hang
Valentine's cards you've received, small pictures you've drawn
or hearts you've cut from construction paper.
If you glue the spiral template onto a thin
piece of cardboard (old cereal boxes work well) or use a paper
plate, it will stretch a bit less than ours did.
We used strings that were each about 6 inches
long. If I did it again, I'd cut them in half (3 inches
- string, wool or ribbon
- Print out the template of choice. I like printing the B&W
version on colored paper.
- Color (where appropriate).
- Cut out the template pieces.
