Outdoor Mobile

Created by: Kraft

Get artsy by cutting and crafting a colorful and beautiful mobile out of construction paper. Mobiles are a fun way to string up a little flare—indoors and out.

Serves: 6 | Prep Time: 15 minutes

What you need:

  • String or twine
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Feathers


  • Brainstorm! Decide what you would like to hang and scan the internet for fun and creative ways to make it happen. Origami birds are a great option. Search online for instructions on how to craft your very own folding—and flying—masterpiece.
  • Cut and craft. If you want to keep it simple, cut a few hearts, diamonds, and stars out of colorful craft paper. Then use a hole puncher or scissor tip to make a hole at the top of your creation.
  • String and hang. Take your string or twine and run it through the hole. If you’re using twine, you can twist it around itself to create more support—and suspend it from a hanger or tree. If you use string, simply wrap it around a tree or another high-hanging object to put your craft skills on display.
