20 Spring Crafts and Activities for Kids
Written by Jen Betterley
Mom Jamie of Hands On : As We Grow shares how she and her preschooler made these neat DIY wind chimes with tin cans found in the recycling bin. Talk about upcycling your trash into treasure!
After gathering their cans and lids in different sizes, Jamie taped the edges to prevent cuts, and then let her son get busy adding plenty of paint (and glitter!) to the cans. For hanging and plenty of clanking, they nailed holes into the top and threaded yarn through with washers of various sizes (Jamie notes that rocks or heavy nuts would also work well for sound). Needless to say, this project was a big hit... Or a bang!
