If you have access to the sea, this craft can cost virtually nothing. All you need is time to collect seashells with a hole already in, and some driftwood. Found on freekidscrafts.com, this mobile is a wonderful reminder of our Creator God and ties in well with the Creation account in Genesis Chapter One.
This is a picture from sarahlidbom.blogspot.com.au. Sarah used a star cookie cutter to make these star shaped sandwiches.
This could also be used to make ‘bread dough’ star hanging ornaments to illustrate creation.
You cut out the shape, make a hole for hanging thread with a knitting needle or stick and then leave the shape to air dry for a few days. It will become very hard and durable.
You can then paint using acrylic paints, glitter etc and it will last for a long time. Why not make many stars using different sized cutters and hang together in a mobile? A constant reminder of God’s amazing creation.
