Mobiles are great for people of all ages. They can be very complex or very simple. For less advanced children, the mobile can be made of simple geometric shapes that are only covered with one color of yarn and then are attached together. More advanced designs could incorporate the solar system and the different planets. This can be more complicated and matching the colors can be difficult especially if the planet being made is more than one color. But this can also be a great way to teach and learn about the solar system, especially in conjunction with school projects about planets. Another great way to have kids make a mobile is to have several different animal designs that can then be stitched around and made into a mobile for the baby of the family or even as a gift for other kids.
Getting your kids started with plastic canvas crafts can be very easy and rewarding. It can also provide a way to get their attention on something other than video games for a while and to help them develop their motor skills and hand eye coordination. Do a few simple projects and gauge the kid’s ability to adapt to the designs and then adjust the difficulty level to the specific child’s abilities and desires. This will help making plastic canvas crafts more interesting and rewarding for the whole family.
