Wind chimes can be made with a variety of materials. Residents can create their own windchimes by recycling unused items that can make noise into their windchimes. Ideas are old keys, beads, or earnings. The basics of a windchime are:
The frame can be a recycled piece of driftwood or a branch for a natural look. From the frame, either drill holes to pass the line through or tie the line around the frame. Then hang the lines and attach all of your chimes at the end. Make sure there is enough length in the line for the wind to blow the chimes, and that the chimes are very close together. the final step would be to find a way to hang the chime outside the resident's window!
This activity can be transformed into a group activity by making every resident donate one 'chime' to the wind chime and have them install their donation to the project. After all the chimes are attached, the windchime can be placed on open ground in the community's yard for all to enjoy.
