Make a twinkly mobile

Celebrate Picture Books shows you how to make a starry mobile to hang over baby’s diaper-changing table or crib, or in the older sibling room! Click on the mobile to go to the craft project.

Pretend play for little ones

Young children love to care for their own babies too! Adults can provide an extra preemie or newborn diaper or make a doll-size one for baby doll or stuffed animal diaper changes. (You can find lots of patterns online for making your own doll-size diaper.)
