Spring is on the way – create your own Wacky Wind Chime to welcome it in, and bask in the beautiful spring weather as you choose a place to hang it!


  • Paper Cup
  • Markers
  • Hole Punch
  • Ribbon
  • Tape (Adhesive or Washi)
  • Stickers
  • String
  • Various Small Decorative Items (i.e., Bells, Buttons, Paperclips, Wooden Pegs, Metal Rings)


  1. Take a paper cup. Using adhesive or washi tape, attach a loop of ribbon to the bottom of the cup.
  2. Use the hole punch to create holes around the rim of the cup (where you would normally drink from). You can make as many or as few holes as you would like.
  3. Tie a string to each hole you have made. Choose some small items (i.e., bells, buttons, wooden pegs, etc) to be attached on the ends of the strings. These will act as the chimes which will produce sound.
  4. Decorate your cup using markers, stickers, or washi tape. Feel free to try out cool designs to make your wind chime as wacky as possible!
  5. When you’re done, it’s time to head outside and find a place to hang your wacky creation. Once it’s hung up, listen for all the cool sounds it will make!

Additional Tips:
Experiment with the different items you’ve used as chimes and discover
the different sounds that they make! Which one is loudest? Quietest? Which one has the highest pitch? The lowest? Which make sounds all on their own, and which need to come into contact with another object to make noise?
