Mixed Up Character Mobile
On two pieces of lightweight cardboard, draw six or seven horizontal lines about an inch apart.
- Ligtweight cardboard
- Crayons or markers
On each piece of cardboard, draw a picture of a different character. Start with the head within the first two lines. Cut the pictures apart along the horizontal lines.
Lay the strips of one picture facedown, leaving small spaces between the strips. Apply glue to the backs of these strips and lay a piece of string in the center, leaving extra string at the top for a hanger.
Glue each piece of the second picture faceup on top of the pieces of the first picture. Be sure to keep the pieces in the correct order.
