You don’t need a turbine to harness the power of the wind. Easy, breezy chimes work just as well—not only are they a creative way to teach kids about air flow and how it works, but they’re also an awesome update your backyard décor. From egg cartons and ice cream spoons to seashells and tin cans, click through the gallery of cute wind chime crafts that will blow you away.

Hanging Hearts

It's heart to resist this sweet wind chime made with care over at No Time for Flashcards. Little hands will need a little help (it's worth the effort!) melting these pretty red and white hearts. You’ll need pony beads, string, a piece of wood and silicone holders. You can get the 4-1-1 from Allison over at No Time for Flashcards.
