What you need for that project is:
- Paper towel holders
- printed card stock pictures of the continents - I used these continents
- hot glue gun
The next thing we did was let our paper towel tubes dry while we cut our ribbon (or I used raffia in this case for mine) and positioned our continents properly on them. We hot glued them to stay in place.
As we made them some of the longer strings had pieces that wanted to rotate around as they hung down. To fix that I just added pieces of cardboard hot glued to the back for weight. That allowed them to hang straight.
Once they were hot glued and ready to be placed onto the dried paper towel tube, we pulled our string through our tubes - this would be the part that would hang our mobile. Next we hot glued all the continents that we had fixed to the string, onto the paper towel tube. Mine got a little out of order as they were handed to me and I didn't notice, LOL - so we had to experience a seismic shift as I unglued and re-glued them into the right order later.
|Ahhhhh - finally in the right order.|
Our final masterpieces!!!
