DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Shapes Mobile

This craft is terrific for practicing both shapes and colours.  It also makes a nice gift for a new young sibling's bedroom!

When making the craft, have your child point out the circle, square, etc.  Also have them point out the red shape, the green shape, etc.  Or ask them to color the circle blue, the square red, etc.  To reinforce their shapes and colours.

We usually create our mobiles by using two straws or sticks taped or tied in a criss-cross or by using one paper towel or gift wrap roll with all the pieces tied to it (this isn't as 3D a mobile, but is good for recycling).
