Wind Chime

Ella and I made her first wind chime: this weekend from tin cans.  She had more fun painting the paper--and herself!  We let the paint dry, and I drilled holes, attached washers and twine.  It was a fun painting activity, but next time I will do some prep work on the cans (sand and prime) so her design lasts longer. 

Two of the more colorful cans didn't make it; they were smooth cans, and the dried paint cracked right off--so we're down to one, two, three cans!  

We hung it on her outdoor music we just need a breeze.
