Wind chime crafts for kids are a great way to make some home-made wind chimes to decorate the porch. We have some great easy to follow instructions to make a wind chime out of sea shells.
What better way to decorate than a home-made chime. We've created these shell crafts to make a wind chime out of sea shells.
A great decoration for the summer months!
Is it almost fall? We've also made a great fall wind chime out of a tin can.
Pick out 6-8 of your favourite sea shells. Cut a piece of string for each shell. Glue one end of the string into each shell (we used hot glue guns to speed up our process, if you use white glue just make sure to allow it to dry completely).
Cut out a strip of white Bristol board and decorate it with a summery theme – we drew a beach. Bend the Bristol board into a circle and glue it in place.
Punch a hole on either side of the top end of your Bristol board. Thread through a pipe cleaner. Twist the pipe cleaner around itself to hold it in place.
You can do this last step two different ways. We chose to glue each piece of string onto the bottom half (on the inside) of the Bristol board. You can also punch holes and thread it through.
Our wind chime crafts for kids are summer and beach themed, great for the front porch!
What fun! And what a great way to recycle some different items. Learning with recycled crafts and so much more makes learning seem less boring and more fun.
This is not our only summer craft, we have a ton of them! They are all super easy to make with step by step instructions. Come join us with some summer crafts for kids. A lot of these are a great way to sneak some learning into the summer fun!
