Hang your wind chime mobile outside and listen to its sounds. It's as if the soft breezes are singing to you.
What You'll Need:
- Plastic coffee can lid
- Plastic egg carton
- Large jingle bells
Adults should help kids with the cutting in this project. To make the wind chime ring, cut the center from a plastic coffee can lid. Make sure the ring is at least 1/2 inch wide. To make the wind chime hanger, punch 4 holes evenly spaced around the ring. Thread a piece of string through each hole. Bring the ends of each string together at the top, and tie them in a knot. Punch 4 more holes between the others. Hang string down from each hole on the ring. Make egg carton bells for each string. Cut out a cup, and poke a hole in the center. Thread the cup through the hanging string, and tie a jingle bell into each cup.See the next page to learn how to create a nature-themed mobile.For more fun activities and kids' crafts, check out:
