Create a melodic mobile with recycled spoons. Visit flea markets or yard sales to find spoons that will glimmer and sing at your touch!
Mobiles are movable art that hangs from a fixed position. The famous artist Alexander Calder made mobiles popular with his colorful metal creations. You can make a metal mobile of your own. It also makes wonderful sounds when you touch it.
Use Crayola® Scissors to cut a recycled paper towel roll into a piece a little longer than your hand. This will make the roll strong enough to support the weight of spoons.
Ask an adult to help you poke an even number of holes into the bottom of your paper towel roll. Space the holes evenly so the roll is less likely to tear.
Lace yarn in one hole and out the one next to it. Tie a knot at the bottom of the yarn. Repeat with each pair of holes. Yarn will be hanging from your tube.
Decorate the tube with Crayola Washable Markers and Crayola Glitter Glue. Dry.
Pass a long, strong string through the tube and over the top of it. Tie a knot to use it as a hanger for your mobile.
Use Crayola Model Magic to make a bead for each piece of dangling yarn. Knead marker color into beads to decorate. Push a hole into each bead with a paper clip or toothpick. Dry.
Thread a bead onto each length of yarn. Tie on a spoon tightly with the yarn.
Hang your mobile indoors. Brush it lightly with your hands for a wonderful, jingling sound.
