DIY Baby Mobile

When helping out in the baby room at my last school, I quickly realized how challenging it could be at times to change diapers.  Not many babies are excited about getting their diaper changed. I would constantly think of ways to try to make diaper changing time more pleasant, thats when I came up with the idea to make some kind of colorful mobil to be placed above the diaper changing table.  It’s such a simple DIY project.

Below are the steps of how to create your own mobile.

Materials:

origami paper or scrap book paper (which I used)
scissors
glue
pencil
string to hang hem

Just follow the directions in the picture tutorial below:
