Here in my daycare, we love decorating the yard with homemade wind chimes, whirligigs and garden ornaments. We make at least one whimsical outdoor ornament every year. Sometimes, we hang hang them in our outdoor backyard play space, and other times, the children take them home and give them to their parents for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
Today I’m sharing 8 of my favourite homemade wind chimes for kids to make. As always, our creations are easy and inexpensive because we make them with recyclables or items from nature, or things we already have around the house. Hopefully these ideas will inspire you and your kids to add a splash of colour and whimsy to your backyard this spring.
