Celebrate the spring season with a decorative mobile!

This activity is appropriate for:
1st - 3rd grade / 6 - 8 years

You will need:


  1. Invite children to paint the back of a paper plate using watercolors.
  2. Cut a slit from the edge to the center of the painted plate; wrap the plate around in the shape of a cone and secure with tape.
  3. Using the Butterfly Templates, trace and cut four butterflies out of construction paper.
  4. Encourage children to color and punch a hole at the top of each butterfly.
  5. At the bottom of the cone-shaped plate, punch four holes that are evenly spaced. Thread a strand of yarn through each hole and secure with a knot.
  6. Attach the butterflies to the bottom of the cone with yarn.
  7. Punch a hole at the top of the cone-shaped plate; thread yarn through the top.
  8. Kids are ready to display their own beautiful butterfly mobile!
