DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Summer Mobile Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a simple paper craft that children can make to decorate their bedrooms or play areas.  You can string the pieces up to make a mobile in many different ways (my favorite is using a paper towel roll that I've painted or covered in paper).


  • a printer
  • paper
  • glue,
  • scissors,
  • paper towel roll, gift wrap roll or a plastic coat hanger
