DLTK's Crafts for Kids
United States MobileUSA Stars and Stripes Mobile

This is a simple mobile made up of stars and flags.  We usually create our mobiles by using two straws or sticks taped or tied in a criss-cross (see picture above) or by using one paper towel or gift wrap roll with all the pieces tied to it (this isn't as 3D a mobile, but is good for recycling).   

You can mix and match the pieces (4 circles + 1 flag in the center or 4 flags + 1 circle in the center or whatever other combination you like!).
