Making Key Chimes ~ Kids Craft


This is a fun and easy project for the littles! 
Not to mention inexpensive :)

We've been enjoying a late Fall here with temps still in the 70's.
Making the most of spending time outside while we can.

Sticks are always a magnet with little ones aren't they?
We decided to do something useful with them


After each choosing the "perfect" stick they were brought in


The painting began


Each had to be the perfect color ;)


Some pretty unique colors came out in mixing and creating 


While the sticks dried, they painted the keys.
 I tied the strings onto the sticks for them


Added a drop of Super Glue to each knot


Let everything dry thoroughly



They keys were added to the bottom of the strings


Each string received a beautifully colored key


Here they are in all their glory!


The littles were so excited to hear them tinkle in the breeze!

  7. Your kids' chimes are very cool. This is a fun adult craft, too. This year the Husband and I made key chimes. I wondered about painting the keys. The next time I make a key chime, I shall.
