A wind chime is an instrument that is suspended from a wire or string and has multiple tubes, rods or bells that move around when the wind blows, creating pleasing sounds as the objects interact with each other.
Who invented wind chimes? The history of wind chimes goes from Ancient Rome to China.
We are happy to share with our creative talent with these wind chimes, which were made during the Online Handwork sessions.

This week’s issue displays handmade wind chimes by students.
Recycled materials as well as coloured papers, sequins, pearls and glitter dust in different colours were used to create the wind chimes. Discarded CDs were painted, dusted with glitter and stringed together so that they make a magical sound when the wind blows. The students loved it.
Beaded wind chimes are fun to make and students get to experiment with patterns which is a key Kindergarten maths skill.
