With people downloading their music to their computers and mp3 music players, many families have numerous CDs lying around the house. You can put them to use by creating a wind chime or sun catcher. Kids can help make these crafts because they are simple.
Cut 12 pieces of fishing line at 8 inches each.
Drill four holes into one CD, in all four quadrants.
Drill two holes across from each other in the other four CDs.
Tie a piece of string through each hole on the CD with four holes. Tie the four strings together at the top in a knot.
Tie four more strings through each of the same holes.
Tie the opposite end of those same strings to another CD with two holes.
Tie a knot in the bottom of each of the other four pieces of fishing line.
String a bell on each of the four shorter pieces, letting it fall to the knot.
Tie the top of the line onto the bottom hole of a CD with two holes, repeating with all four pieces.
Hang outside where it will catch the breeze and sun.
Be sure to wear the safety goggles when using the drill.
