A colourful and delightful wind chime which kept my little one engaged for quite some time!


1 hour

Age range:

3-12 years


  • Paper Cup
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Beads
  • Coloured drinking straws
  • String
  • Bells


  1. Make a hole in the bottom of the paper cup and thread the pipe cleaner though, making a loop in which to hang your wind chime. You can thread beads over the pipe cleaner to decorate if you wish.
  2. Cut four pieces of string to the same length (approximately 40cm) and cut the coloured straws to about 3 cm.
  3. Thread beads, bells and pieces of straw onto the lengths of string, tie a knot in the end to stop it all falling off!
  4. Secure the other end of the string to each of the holes in the rim of the cup.
  5. Hang at a window where a breeze can make your bells sing!
