We will first decorate the cloud mobile base. Fill a bowl with blue paint. Dip the end of a cotton ball into the blue paint and press it onto the cloud.

Fill the entire cloud mobile base with cotton balls to give the cloud a fluffy appearance.

While you are waiting for the cloud mobile base to dry, color in the shapes that you will attach to the mobile base. You can mix and match the pieces together to add more interest to your designs! Ask students to talk about the various pieces they pick out. What if the pieces form some kind of story?

You can color the shapes in different ways, with crayons…

It’s great fun to exchange the different shapes with your classmates! Mix and match to make the the most unique mobile design.

To attach the shapes to the clouds, you will need to cut out a length of string. Each shape has a special tab that can be folded out. Slide the end of the string over the tab, then push to secure it.

It’s our ingenious no-tie design that allows you to put the mobile together without glue or any mess!

Once the shapes have been attached to the length of string, the opposite end of the string can be tabbed down to the inside swirls of the cloud mobile base.

When the mobile base is lifted up, the weight of the shapes will pull the inner spirals out.
