I love the idea of building a mobile from a branch. More substantial (and classier!) than an old wire hanger! I'd love to collect little things with Evie to hang on her mobile, choose ribbons, paint the branch whatever color she wanted.
Pom-Pom Branches - easy ideas for entertaining! Great for fall or match colors to the party theme. Would also be neat for daycare kids to use as a worry tree. When they are worried, they glue a poem poem to the branch and then let their worry go.
