Wind chimes

Make a reminder of the arrival of the Spirit

Some people find it relaxing on a breezy day to listen to the sound of outdoor wind chimes, which play gentle improvised tunes as the wind passes through.

shutterstockBy hanging chimes in a tree or overhang, the sounds can serve as year-round reminders for parents and children of Pentecost's arrival of the Spirit, which came as "a rush of wind" (Acts 2:2).

Although families can find an endless assortment of wind chimes in stores and online, it's easy to make one as a craft project for Pentecost.

You can find simple instructions on the Internet at the About website. Some inexpensive items you can use to create your chimes include metal washers, shells, unused metal kitchen utensils, tin cans and bottle caps.
