I really started to apply Montessori when my first born was around 6 months old. With my son, I started from birth.
I attempted to make my own Montessori mobiles. I managed the first one: the Munari mobile, see picture below. And the octohedron, not pictured becaue well, we were living our lives!
I found the Gobbi mobile time consuming and to be perfectly honest, I have never finished it!
Since browsing Instagram, I found many super easy way to make it. I wanted to share with you as it would have been so much easier to make those versions!
But what is the Gobbi Mobile?
Thread the embroidery thread around the balls! So much easier!
A super easy DIY with cotton balls instead of beads/styrofoam balls at Montessibaby
A felt version by Mum and Montessori
A crochet version by Nenetzin.
Just paint the wooden balls from Littledopt
Make some pompoms like this one
