Today's project is a rainbow mobile. I got the paint here... http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/product/productDet.jsp?productItemID=1%2C689%2C949%2C371%2C893%2C641&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=1408474395181113&bmUID=1373033119365
These roll on painters are a great way to use paint with kids without the big mess. I've used them with my preschoolers and they love them!
I cut out 2 rainbows out of watercolor paper. I drew lines on the rainbows with black sharpie. I think I use a black sharpie for something every day. Love them.
I made 2 rainbows so that my mobile will look cute from both sides. Next, I cut rainbow colored ribbon into 12 inch pieces. These are glued on the back of one of the rainbows.
I used hot glue to glue the pieces together... before I glued the rainbows shut, I stuffed them with polyfil.
Come back tomorrow to see how I dyed the rainbow pasta!
