What you get
Make some noise with a set of colorful wind chimes that you build yourself! Construct a stand to hold the chimes, then explore the science of pitch by tapping on the different-sized chimes with a striker. Keep your chimes inside to freestyle your own tunes or hang them outside for an easy, breezy serenade.
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“I tried hanging the chimes from soft nylon cords at first, but they kept absorbing the sound! So I swapped the cords for fishing line, which worked a lot better.”

Beautiful sound. Son and babysitter put it together without any issues. Loved it! We are buying more for friends!
Beautiful! Bought two for grandkids to make for mom’s birthdays. Easy work for 12 and 10 year old girls helping their 6 year old brothers. Completed project has surprisingly delightful tinkling sound, perfect for inside now, hanging on the deck next spring and summer! One of our favorites!
Wonderful activity. Amazing task for a little one.
