Hey Diddle Diddle Mobile Craft

Here's a really nice nursery rhyme themed mobile craft from DLTK.


  • Hey Diddle Diddle templates from website
  • paper towel roll
  • scissors
  • crayons
  • glue
  • yarn
  • blue construction paper
  • paper stars


  1. Visit the DLTK website(link below) and print out the Hey Diddle Diddle characters template.
  2. Decorate the paper towel roll with blue paper and stars to make a night sky.
  3. Color and cut out all the characters. There are 2 mirror images to sandwich together.
  4. Glue the characters together with the a length of string in the middle.
  5. Tie the strings to the cardboard tube.
  6. Tie another piece of yarn through the tube and hang up.

Here's the original site with the templates:
Hey Diddle Diddle Mobile

I really like this craft and the cartoons look great, but the disadvantage is that there are 8 characters, all with 2 mirror images. That's A LOT of coloring and cutting for little kids.

Actually, I made an easier version similar to the one shown. I used chopsticks tied at the center to make a cross at the top.


  • 4 or 5 characters from coloring pages
  • 2 disposable chopsticks tied in the middle
  • yarn
  • crayons
  • scissors
  • tape


  1. Tie chopsticks at the top to make a cross.
  2. Color and cut out pictures.
  3. Tape to pieces of yarn.
  4. Tape the yarn to the ends of the chopsticks and hang up.
