Welcome back the warmer weather and outdoor family fun with this Eco friendly homemade wind chime.

Windchime

Supplies:

  • Scissors
  • Clear plastic lids
  • Hole punch
  • Fishing line
  • Stick
  • Jingle bells

 

Directions:

  • Cut the rims off the plastic lids, then help your children cut out about seven leaf shapes from the clear plastic. If you want, you can create “veins” on the leaves by lightly scoring each one with an X-Acto blade.
  • Punch a hole in the top and bottom of each leaf. Tie a 7- to 10-inch length of fishing line to the top of each leaf, then hang the leaves, evenly spaced, from the stick.
  • Using short lengths of fishing line, hang a jingle bell from the bottom of each leaf.
  • To make a hanger, tie the ends of a 6- to 8-inch piece of fishing line to each end of the stick.
