Paper wind chime

We were making paper wind chimes with kids last week. Well it's not actually a chime and they don't give any sound, but its still great fun to make them as you can use a lot of techniques. And also you can use it as a decoration in your room by just hanging it on a lamp for example.

You have to make 5 shapes. We use colour carton for that. You can make anything you like and you can decorate your shapes with quilled paper, you can make a small mosaic on each shape or just draw something. Also you can make a wind chimes from traditional Japanese cranes or fishes any other origami. It's fun! We use simple straws and string to make a cross and to attach the shapes.
