Need a craft that you can do with your kids to teach them about weather? In this art project kids color in different weather symbols and create a beautiful mobile using natural materials combined with their very own artwork. I love how this mobile looks in any room or outside. This weather mobile is perfect for a new addition to your family too and can be hung up above a crib in a nursery.

TEACH KIDS ALL ABOUT THE WEATHER WITH THIS WEATHER MOBILE CRAFT! HERE IS WHAT WE USED TO MAKE IT:
- paper weather symbols
- natural thin string or clear string
- thick natural string
- basic arts and crafts supplies
Weather Mobile – Step 1
Start by coloring all of your weather symbols. You can make your own or print out our free weather symbols coloring page. Make sure to print out two and reverse one of them for later.
Weather Mobile – Step 2
Next use a pair of scissors to cut out all of your weather symbols.
Weather Mobile – Step 3
Then cut out 10″ long pieces of thin natural string or clear string and tape them onto the back of all your weather symbols.
Weather Mobile – Step 4
Now you want to glue on another matching symbol onto the back of your original symbol so that you can’t see the string. An example of this would be to take your sun symbol and gluing another sun symbol back to back with the string sandwiched in the middle.
Weather Mobile – Step 5
Take the end of your strings and tie them onto a stick making sure they are tied on tight and vary in lengths so that your weather symbols aren’t all in one line.
Weather Mobile – Step 6
Above is what your mobile should look like when all of your weather symbols are tied on. Make sure to trim all excess string from when you tied them on.
Weather Mobile – Step 7
Finally tie a thick piece of natural string onto each end of the stick. You can make the string as long or short as you would like but I made mine about 15″ long.
You now have a beautiful weather mobile that you made with your grandkids!
