Key Wind Chime
By: Tania Cowling
Difficulty: Very Easy
Age: 5 and up
Parental supervision is recommended
Gather those old keys collecting dust on bookshelves and in dresser drawers and help your child create his very own wind chime. A child will receive satisfaction by making this craft, but don't forget that the visual and auditory effects will stimulate babies, too. Place a wind chime close to (but well out of reach from) the baby's crib or playpen for even your youngest to enjoy.
What you'll need:
- Small aluminum pie pan
- Hole punch
- Yarn, heavy string, or durable ribbon
- Old keys
How to make it:
- Take a small aluminum pie pan and punch a few holes around the rim.
- Then thread yarn or heavy string into three of the holes to make a tripod hanger.
- In the remaining holes, thread lengths of yarn in varying sizes; then tie a key at the bottom of each string.
- Hang this wind chime in a breezy spot and wait for the tinkling sounds.
