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.
Take your tools again and punch holes in the round lid that you are going to use, one for
each item that will be hanging from the wind chime. Thread the string through the hole
and tie a knot so that it will not fall back through. Poke two more holes in the lid and tie
one piece of string through both holes and attach the hook.
All that is left is to find the perfect spot for your wind chime. Place it close enough so
that it can be heard through an open window on a breezy day. If the items do not knock
against each other when the wind blows you may have to adjust the lengths of the string a
few times until you get it just right. Keep an eye on the wind chime to make sure it
doesn’t loose any of the pieces. If it does be sure to pick them up as they can pose a
choking hazard to young children.
Kids are naturally attracted to animals and will love the birds that come to eat off of their
homemade bird feeders. The following instructions are for a very simple bird feeder that
can be made again and again. Once you put out food for birds and they start coming on a
regular basis you should continue to feed them as they are rely on the feeders as a food
source. Bird Feeders
