Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the kite and cloud templates.

Step 2

Trace the kite pattern onto different shades of construction paper. You will need five kites. Cut out, then fold each kite in half, vertically.

Step 3

Trace the cloud pattern onto white cardstock and cut out.

Step 4

ADULT: Punch a hole in the top, middle of each cloud.

Step 5

Attach the kites, back to back, with a glue stick.

Step 6

Cut two pieces of yarn about about 6" long [15.2 cm]. Glue one end of one piece to the back, top of the kite and the other to the back, bottom of the kite.

Step 7

Cut four chenille pipe cleaners to about 1½" [3.8 cm] long and twist them onto the bottom piece of yarn to make a tail for your kite.

Step 8

Tie the yarn from the top of the kite to the middle of the wood dowel. Trim off excess yarn.

Step 9

Next, tie a piece of yarn to each of the clouds. Decide how far down you want them to hang, then tie the yarn onto the wood dowel. Trim off excess yarn.

Step 10

Finally, cut a piece of yarn to tie to either end of the wood dowel to make a hanger for your mobile.
