Easter Activities


Holiday Mobile

This Easter, let the wind spin and twirl your holiday mobile. It's a great way to see your project from every angle.

What You'll Need:

Plastic coffee can lid

Scissors

Permanent markers

Hole punch

String

To make the frame, have an adult cut the center from a plastic coffee can lid. Make sure the rim is at least 1/2 inch wide.

Color the rim with permanent markers.

To make the hanger, punch 4 holes evenly spaced around the rim. Thread a piece of string through each hole. Bring the ends of each string together at the top and tie them in a knot. Punch 4 more holes between the others. Hang string down from the 4 holes to hold your decorations.

Each season of the year, tie on something new: Christmas ornaments, paper Easter eggs, or Halloween ghosts and goblins.
