Mobiles - We have made mobiles during units on Flight (unusual inventions), Weather (water cycle), Insects (complete and incomplete metamorphosis) and the Seasons (the four seasons).
Mobiles incorporate problem-solving skills, small muscle control, and basic physical science (finding fulcrum, balance, etc). If starting from scratch seems like too much effort, Dinah Zike's Cross Curricular Thematic Manipulatives series has some wonderful activity masters for creating educational mobiles.
