Category cloud in static block?

How do I create a “category cloud” in a static block?

Basically, I have 4 top-level categories, each represented on the main page by a static block. Within each static block, I want to dynamically list 6-12 of the most popular sub-categories per main category, each in their respective static block. Does that make any sense?

Category 1
category 1a, category 1b, category 1c, more…

Category 2
category 2a, category 2b, category 2c, more…

Category 3
category 3a, category 3b, category 3c, more…

Currently, I have four static blocks on the main page, one for each main category. Clicking on each block will take you to each main category page. But I thought it’d be good to present a few second-level categories in each static block as well. Anyone have any thoughts on how to accomplish this?
