Craft a Seashell Wind Chime

What You Need:

  • About 15 small seashells
  • 4-5 straws
  • Fishing wire
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • 1 Styrofoam cup
  • Pencil
  • Drill (For parents use only)

What You Do:

  1. Thoroughly wash the seashells.
  2. Allow shells to completely dry.
  3. Have a parent drill a tiny hole in each shell.
  4. Cut each straw into 4 sections.
  5. Cut about 3-inches from the open end of the Styrofoam cup. Distribute 3 hole punches evenly around the cup. (Or mom can use the drill for the holes.)
  6. With a pencil (or the drill), make 2 small holes at the top of the cup. This will be to hold up the wind chime.
  7. Alternate stringing 5 shells and the straw bits onto one piece of fishing wire. Do this a total of three times.
  8. Take each fishing wire with the straw and the shells (there should be three) and tie a knot on the ends. Take the other end and string it through a hole in the cup. Knot it. Do this for all three.
  9. String a piece of fishing wire through the holes at the top of the Styrofoam cup. Tie it in a knot.

Decorate the cup as you wish. Once you're done, hang your seashell wind chime outside for family, friends and neighbors to enjoy.
