Catch­ing the breeze

Kids Go Gardening - - News -

Lie in the gar­den on a breezy spring day and close your eyes. Can you hear the birds? Can you hear the wind as it moves through the leaves?

How about adding some mu­sic to your gar­den with hang­ing wind chimes? Get cre­ative and de­sign your own! Kacy found tiny ter­ra­cotta pots at the gar­den cen­tre to make her bell wind chimes. They make a lovely tin­kling sound.

Bell’ wind chimes

You w ill need:

• 8 lit­tle ter­ra­cotta pots

• A hanger (Kacy found a round rack at the op shop. You could also use a piece of drift­wood or any op shop find)

• Large beads (Kacy found some old neck­laces)

• Colour­ful string (e.g. cro­chet cot­ton) to fit through the beads.

• Paint (Kacy used test pots of house paint)
