Crafting mobiles

Ian and I decided to try our hand at making a mobile. It was a lot of fun and turned out pretty cute. It's just a collection of random things found around the house: buttons, shells, round metal thingys found in the tool box, and some paper clouds we made. We found the idea on this blog. She has so many unique and creative ideas!

We hung it in our family room next to the toy box and a few other favorite things. It's fun to watch it blow in the breeze when the back door is open.

And oh yeah... the chicks say 'hello'.

Andrea, your blog is great.
The picture of the four chicks is wonderful. You are adding so much personality to these 4 little chicks. You can see how E.B. White was able to conjure up the story of "Charlotte's Web."

Great project. It's so good to use things around the house. Reminds me a little of Waldorf. I'm going to start looking for ideas such as these to do with Samuel. So far, he's much more into being active than sitting down and making a craft, but it doesn't hurt to try. What parts of the craft was Ian able to help with? Stringing the items?

Once again, love the pic of the chicks, and you're doing a great job w/ your blog.
