Make a Wind Chime
The sound of a wind time in the summer breeze is very relaxing and making one can
occupy the children for an afternoon. The materials you will need are items that will
make a pretty sound when they rub against each other (shells, beads, or even old
utensils), something sharp to poke a hole through each item, a hammer, string, a round
item (a lid or piece of wood) for the top, and a hook to hang the wind chime.
Once all the items are collected the adult should use the hammer and sharp object (such
as a screwdriver) to make a hole in each object. If the item is too hard to make a hole in
(like a rock) tie string around it several times until it is secured. After the holes are made
tie a piece of string to each item. Make a Wind Chime
