When making your "Balancing Act" mobile, notice that one heavy and one light object can still balance. It all depends on where you position the items.
What You'll Need:
- 1-1/2 yards of yarn
- Blunt scissors
- One 12-inch wood dowel with 1/4-inch diameter
- Two 6-inch wood dowels with 1/4-inch diameter
- Natural items such as shells, bark, and rocks
Cut the following pieces of yarn: one 15-inch, one 9-inch, five 5-inch, and one 4-inch. Tie one end of the 15-inch piece of yarn to the center of the 12-inch dowel to hang the mobile. Tie one end of the 9-inch yarn piece to the center of one 6-inch dowel. Tie the other end of the yarn piece to one end of the 12-inch dowel. Tie one end of a 5-inch yarn piece to the center of the remaining 6-inch dowel. Tie the other end of the yarn to the other end of the 12-inch dowel. Tie the 4-inch yarn piece to the center of the 12-inch dowel. Tie the remaining 5-inch yarn pieces to the 6-inch dowels. Hang natural items such as shells, bark, and rocks on the yarn ends to balance the mobile.For more fun activities and kids' crafts, check out:
