You’ll Need

* Plastic drinking straws
* String
* Construction paper
* Scissors
* Markers


Using the picture above as a guide, arrange the drinking straws. Connect them with string by tying the string around the straws. Leave the knots loose enough that you can slide the string back and forth to balance the mobile later. Cut your favorite shapes or objects out of construction paper and draw on them with the markers. You can either tape the string to your shapes, or make a small hole in the top of the shape and pull the string through it. Once you have everything put together, slide the string back and forth until the mobile is balanced. Hang it up in your room and you’re done.
