It’s Week 2 at Camp HOMER!
In this week’s fun-filled activity, we’re making music with a DIY Wind Chime!
With a few simple materials (recycled items are a plus!) and kid-friendly directions, you’ll have a colorful wind chime to hang in your yard and the soothing sounds of nature around you all summer long.
What You’ll Need:
A Paper or Plastic Cup
Paint and/or Stickers
Hole Puncher, Pen, or Scissors
Bells, old CDs, keys (anything that jingles!)
Creating Your Wind Chime (grab your gown-up for this part!):
- Decorate your cup! You can use colorful paints, stickers, or tissue paper to cover the outside of the cup.
- Let the cup dry. This may take some time, so feel free to have a snack, play on HOMER, or have a dance party!
- Turn the cup upside down and punch a few holes through the top (what used to be the bottom) of the cup.
- String beads, bells, and any other noise-making objects through the holes and connect the strings at the top (be sure to leave enough room to tie the string around a branch!)
- Hang your wind chime on the nearest tree branch, then listen and enjoy the magical sounds around you!
