Make the comforting sound of wind chimes in this easy and fun musical craft!

How We Did It

Tin Can Wind Chimes
Save those soup cans! We saved and washed out three soup cans (one big and two small ones) for this project. I told my daughter we were going to make wind chimes as a gift for Grandma!

She had fun decorating them with her finger paints, but you could decorate them with regular paint or even markers!

Once my kiddo was happy with the results, we laid them on paper towels to dry. Then I turned them over and gently used a screwdriver and tapped the handle with a hammer to make a hole in each one.

Next, we practiced our knot tying and tied knots in a piece of string to hold the cans in place, making sure to overlap them a little so they made noise. My daughter took them outside and sure enough... they worked! P.S. Grandma loved them too!
