Create a Colorful Wind Chime

The finished wind chime.

All you need to make this delightful spring decoration is a few pots, some twine, paint, wooden “stems” and wooden discs for the flower petals. Best of all: there’s no drilling involved, so the kids can help with every single step. They’ll love painting the “flowers” and ringing the “bells.”
