We have always used the Montessori Gobi mobile, but with Sarah I decided to DIY my way into exploring some of the other ways that infant guides use mobiles with babies. You've probably seen many of these on Instagram, but here is a one-stop peak at our collection (so far).
Sticks from the yard, a Christmas ornament, and leftovers from this kit.
This one is Sarah's go-to favorite.
Macrame string of lights from Target Dollar Spot, extra hanger
Extra large jingle bell (any will do), scrap ribbon
DIY Ribbon Mobile
Embroidery hoop, tassel decorations also from Target
DIY Dancing Leaves
Mobile picture hanger, wax dipped fall leaves.
Bonus: The wax dipped leaves was a great project for the older kids!
All of my mobiles are DIY thrifted, recycled, and dollar store hacks. Most were made in under five minutes (seriously!). Tim hung a long wire from the ceiling and I've been storing them on command hooks on the walls. I also clip the end of the wire up when nothing is hanging.
We rotate mobiles throughout the day, adding new and interesting objects as Sarah grows. All of the kids participate in caring for her movement and even share ideas for new mobiles.
Bonus adorable toddler picture!
