Last year we made Yogurt Cup Wind Chimes.  The kids loved helping to make the wind chime and it is still out in the tree a year later!  We set out to make a new wind chime this year out of another recycled material.  Here is what we came up with! This wind chime that kids can make is fun and easy.  A great way to decorate the yard for spring or summer.

How to make a wind chime with kids:

I removed the label from the container and it sat in the garage almost a year, lol.  Finally, a few weeks ago the kids and I got a chance to work on this project.  I had my husband add holes to the now bottom of the container. He put 8 total around the edge.  He added 2 close together on the now top also.

The kids added foam stickers to the container and I threaded the ribbon at the bottom and tied knots to hold it on.  The kids could have done this but since we were pushed for time I did the ribbons myself.  It seemed unfinished so I added a few pony beads to the end. More craftprojectideas.com  goodies to the rescue!

Last but not least, I added some string up top into the 2 holes.  Now I could hang it up for us to enjoy.  The kids and I were thrilled with how it turned out.  We look forward to making a new one when this one gets worn. But for now the bright colors of this recycled container, kid made wind chime, is being enjoyed.
