A star mobile is a simple craft to make, and it looks great hanging from the bedroom ceiling. You can fashion the mobile by slipping a paper clip onto the middle of a straw and one at each end of the straw. Do this several times, then hang decorated star cutouts from the paper clips. You can slide clips to the left or right to balance the mobile.
A handprint sun craft is simple to make with supplies such as a paper plate, a pencil, yellow and orange construction paper, scissors, glue, markers and wiggly eyes. Trace a dinner plate onto a piece of yellow construction paper and cut it out. Trace a hand onto yellow and orange construction paper several times to make enough prints to go around the circle. Stagger the colours and glue them to the yellow circle so the fingers make the rays of the sun. To finish it, add wiggly eyes and decorate with markers.
A moon phase craft is a way to teach children about the different phases of the moon through the hands-on act of making a craft. Cut out the different phases of the moon and have the child decorate the moon cutouts with paints, markers or other decorative supplies. Hang the moons from the ceiling.
