Father's Day Craft for Preschool

Hello there,

I know it has been a long time, but I am back and just in time for Father's Day!

It will be celebrated here in the US on Sunday, June 15th.

Here is a simple but fun idea for a gift for dad that is a little different from the usual. Easy to make and all ages can do this with a little help. Make a windchime for dad with some of his favorite things.


Need: screws, nuts, bolts, keys

You can use a hanger or a piece of wood for your base, and then hang a variety of screws, washers, nuts, bolts, etc with string or fishing wire! Be sure to tie them tightly (teachers give an extra tug on the knots just to be sure). Suspend these fairly evenly and close enough together so that a slight breeze will make music!

Just a little different and the chime will remind dad of that special little person in his life.

Hope you enjoy this. Look forward to more ideas.

Let me know how you like the ideas and also send me yours to share on the blog.
