We are starting a fall mobile next week. Two sticks from the yard. Tie them in X shape. Cord for children, tie knot at bottom of approx. 18 inch long cut strands, and roll up and rubber band about 6 inches at top. I will give my 4 young ones a small container of glue and a q-tip. Plan to give each two cords, length of my choosing to each child. I know where mom will hang this mobile, and instead of 4 separate ones, ONE mobile full of stuff. Lay cords on wax paper, and have paper plates of fall and halloween stuff for them to choose from and glue on. I did see this on internet lately. Have one horrible spider for the 10 yr. old boy, and nifty stuff for the 3 younger girls.
