Lola's mobile is her favourite and her best. You can make one just like it.

30 minutes This should take about 30 mins

You will need:

  • Print-outs (5 pages)
  • Safety scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • Lollypop sticks
  • Colouring pencils
  • Wool or string

Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.

What to do:

Step 1

Butterflies, birds, flower and rainbow

First, you'll need to print off the pictures and stick them to cardboard. You need to stick the opposite picture on the same piece of cardboard because your mobile will spin!

Step 2

Two birds

Colour in your pictures with your best pencils or pens so that they look ever so bright and colourful.
Now you need to put all your pictures together so you can hang them from the ceiling.

Step 3


Take two pieces of ribbon or string, making sure that they are two different lengths.Attach the string to the picture with sticky tape. Now stick one end of a lollypop stick. Do the same on the other side of the stick.

Step 4

Bird and flower attached to a lollypop stick

Now do this again with two other pictures. Your mobile is really nearly ready!

Step 5

Butterflies, birds, flower and rainbow

Now using one big lollypop stick (or two stuck together) attach the two chains to either side using sticky tape. Using a really long piece of string, stick the buttterfly in the middle. Now your mobile is finished, you can hang it in your bedroom.
