How to make a Swift Mobile

Here is a great idea for kids. OK, the kids may need a little help, but the resulting mobile will really show them what Swifts look like and help them gain an appreciation of these great birds. All you need to do is to download the instructions, then the template of shapes to cut out and you are all set up.

For templates with labels for wings down, wings flat and wings up configurations, click on these links:
Wings down  Wings flat  Wings up
Then in Googledocs, hit File > Download, or File > Print (PDF).
After cutting out the pieces, write the labels in brackets on the other side of the card. Then score, fold and stick matching labels together.
[UPDATE Nov 2015: We have uploaded a version with yellow lines suitable for printing on black card - download]
