I thought that I was finished with the Noah’s Ark portion of the Craft Through the Bible series, but then this idea came to me last week. In our children’s lessons on Noah’s Ark, many of the kids are interested in the flood (aka lots and lots of rain!) aspect of the story, and I wanted a craft that would bring out that portion of the story. This Raindrop Paper Mobile is perfect when talking about lots of raindrops!
Supplies (I’ve included the Amazon affiliate links to products that I use below):
- Twine or string
- Blue card stock raindrops in two different colors and at least 2 different sizes
I used my Silhouette machine to cut out easy raindrop shapes. If you do not have a die cutting machine, find a printable file online. This page at Printable Treats has 4 different raindrop shapes that you can print out. Use them as templates to cut the card stock raindrops.
If you have a Silhouette and want to see where I gathered my image, I actually ungrouped a flower image and used one of the petals to create a raindrop image.
Cut two pieces of string that are at least 12″ long. Cut one that is around 9″ long. Tie them together on one end in a knot.
Use the glue to attach the raindrops on the strings. Play around with different patterns to interchange the sizes and colors. To make the mobile double sided, glue a matching raindrop on the back of each raindrop so that they all are the same on both sides.
Let the glue dry completely. You can make this for yourself to be a visual aid for your Noah’s Ark lesson, or cut out lots of raindrops so that each kid can make a Raindrop Paper Mobile for to take home for themselves.
Of course, you can also use this craft for any weather related discussion, too. Use construction paper to make it more budget friendly for a group or preschool class.
