Spring Craft Activities for Kids
4 of 9
Kids can create a bright and spring-like mobile using just colorful tissue paper and a little imagination. For this craft, you will need:
- scraps of tissue paper
- wax paper
- glue mixture (half glue, half water)
- coat hanger
- string or thread
- lump of clay
Lay the newspaper on your table, and put the glue mixture in a small container.
Cut two pieces of wax paper the same size and lay on the newspaper. Using the paint brush, cover one piece of the wax paper with glue.
Lay pieces of tissue paper all over the glue, and cover the tissue paper with another layer of the glue mixture.
Coat your piece of string in the glue mixture and use it to make a shape, such as a fish, on the tissue covered wax paper. Make sure the two ends of the string meet when your shape is completed.
Lay the other piece of the wax paper on top and press down firmly until it sticks completely.
When dry, trim the paper around the string design. Use a needle and thread to string your design.
Untwist the coat hanger and bend into a slight curve, trimming if necessary. Stick one end into your clay to make an anchor.
Tie your shapes to the wire to create a pretty mobile!
