Black and white baby mobile make
A lot of the Wild Play content is for toddlers and pre-schoolers but I know that those of you with really little ones also need help to distract, play and soothe right now.
So here's a simple little make for you to put together to hopefully mesmerise your wee one for a while. Introducing our baby mobile.
Simply print out the download and then follow the instructions. You can hang the images from anything that is suitable - a baby gym, an existing cot mobile, a chair arm for example, or you could make your own frame for it out of cardboard or a light weight coat hanger. PLEASE remember that if your baby can reach it and pull it, it must be safe so nothing falls on them or can hurt them.
What you need
• The print out
• Glue and tape
• Thread, string or wool
How to put it all together
Print and cut out the animals. Fold in half.
Take a piece of string, wool or thread, make a loop and stick to one side of the animal. Then glue the two sides together to trap the thread in the middle. Repeat for all of the animals.
At this stage you can then go on to tie them to a suitable hanging space of your choice. If you want to make a mobile keep reading.
Roll up two pieces of paper and tape together in a cross shape. Tie one animal to each end of the cross, and one in the middle. Place an extra piece of string in the middle to be able to tie up/hang securely.
Don't forget to share!
