Craft for OKIDO magazine

The lovely people at Okido magazine asked me to do a craft project for their latest issue which is all about the weather.

OKIDO is jam-packed full of things to keep little hands and minds occupied. Check it out…it’s just lovely!

I made this ‘rainy day mobile’. It’s really simple – all you need is paper, thread and glue.

Follow the diagrams below to construct the raindrops…

…you can sew them too if you would prefer – then you only need to cut out two shapes for each drop – rather than four.

I ♥ OKIDO – hooray!! I ♥ the rain too…but not all the time!

    Gosh, I wish this magazine was cheaper to the US. We just can’t justify paying for it. Do you have any suggestions for something similar in the US (without international shipping) for kids?

    I did this activity with girl scouts and they loved it. Now, I am compiling resources for other leaders to use. Would you mind if I linked back to this activity and included a picture of it? Thanks in advance!
