Wind Chimes 🌬️

We studied the science of sounds with this colorful wind chimes by KiwiCo. This project is a great way to spend time outdoors and explore the sounds and movements of nature. My kids loved building it and now we enjoy the beautiful sounds it makes everyday.


What are Wind Chimes?

Wind chimes are a musical instrument made up of several hanging tubes or pipes that are struck by the wind, producing a soothing and calming sound. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, including metal, wood, and glass. Wind chimes are commonly used as decorative pieces and are often hung outside near windows or in gardens.


What is KiwiCo?

KiwiCo was created to celebrate kids' natural creativity and curiosity, while helping parents who want to bring enriching experiences to their children. We want to make it fun, easy, and delightful for families to spend time building, exploring and creating together. And, ultimately, we hope that the problem solving skills and creative confidence that kids gain today will help them tackle the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow.


What is the KiwiCo purpose?

They believe that creative confidence helps kids think BIG and act like creators and producers instead of just consumers. I had a deep appreciation for the creative, hands-on projects that encourage this kind of thinking, but as a parent I often found that my best intentions fell short. It was tough to find the time to do the research and come up with a great idea, let alone gather all the materials.


KiwiCo Wind Chimes Box Description

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.
