We have been enjoying making our red, white & blue crafts and learning a little bit about the holiday as we go. We have already made a few for the inside of our house, today we decided to make a craft for the outside as well.

Patriotic Pasta Wind Chimes

Color your pasta by shaking in a baggie with red & then white paints or food coloring. Lay in a single layer on wax paper to dry.

Glue around the bowl making sure not to cover the holes.

Pull yarn or string through your holes.

Gather the string on the top & tie off.

String the colored pasta onto the yarn that is under the bowl. This is a great fine motor skill activity for your child. Knot at the bottom once you reach your desired length. Use hot glue to secure the knot in place so that it doesn’t unravel. (Hot glue should be operated by an adult)
