melted bead mobiles

I saw this idea on here: www.artfulparent.com

We've inherited some mobiles from the grandparent's tree that they had to cut down. Having these new additions hanging in our trees has sparked the children's interest in mobiles. To make these I used an old muffin tray, we filled the spaces with plastic beads and put it the oven for 10 minutes ( 180c). We had to open all the windows and doors as it got quite smelly for a bit but it went away quickly. We liked how they came out but decided not to do it again until Summer when we can melt them outside on the BBQ. I think I'll use a bigger pan too.

please excuse the ugly blue water pipe running through our garden... sigh
