What you will need:

markers or crayons


a ruler


construction paper (any colors)



Start your mobile by cutting a strip of paper about 18 inches long and 4 inches high. Use markers or crayons to decorate both sides of the strip. Write your name, your team’s name or even use stickers to make this strip look however you like. Once finished, bring the ends of the strip together to form a circle and tape them together.

Make or cut out of a magazine three to six sports- themed pictures (ask an adult before cutting something out).

Cut 1 strand of yarn for every picture and make the strands different lengths. Take one end of the yarn and tape it to the top of one of your pictures. Be sure when you hold this strand, your picture isn’t upside down. Tape the other pieces of yarn to the remaining pictures. You should have one strand of yarn taped to the top of each picture.

Take the other end of the yarn and tape it to the inside of the circle you decorated. Do this with all strands, spreading them out along the inside of your circle. This will help balance your mobile.

Cut one more piece of yarn about 14 inches long. Tape the ends across from each other to the inside of your circle. This is used to hang your sports mobile.

You have now completed making an original sports mobile. Be proud!
