- Paper towel roll
- Construction paper - two colours
- Scotch tape
- Hole puncher
Pick a colour to wrap the paper towel roll with and use glue or tape to secure the construction paper to the roll. Our daughter picked black so the stars would shine against their background. Draw stars of a variety of sizes on another colour of construction paper and then cut them out. We made 10 stars, and cut out 10 pieces of string of varying sizes. Punch a hole in the stars and use the string to tie them around the paper towel roll. Attach a string at the top of the mobile so it can be hung. You can also decorate the paper towel roll with stars, as well as decorating the stars. My daughter asked if she could write her name on one of the stars. I love when children come up with their own additions to projects! You may have noticed in one of the pictures that she also included a heart on the mobile. After carefully writing her name, she also wanted to include the names of other family members.
