Hanging craft sticks make a soft, pretty sound when the summer breezes blow -- and they look great while waving in the wind, too.
Have your child paint 10 craft sticks and allow them to dry. Put a line
of glue on the back of five sticks. Sandwich a piece of string between a
glued stick and an unglued stick; clip them with clothespins to hold
the glue securely. Let dry. Run glue along an unpainted craft stick, lay
it horizontally and stick on the five strings as shown (don't let the
sticks hang too low or they'll tangle in the wind). Top with another
unpainted stick and add clothespins to hold the glue securely. Once dry,
tie the strings together and cut off the excess. Hang outdoors and let
the wind do its work.
