driftwood chimes

My daughter came home for the Canada Day week end.

We went to the Farmer's Market and found a stall,
that had a mama-daughter project,  all packaged in a red paper bag.
Inside were bits and pieces to make a wind chime - pieces of driftwood, some beads, 2 forks and a spoon).  We were told that everything that West Coast Chimes uses comes from either the beach or a thrift shop.  Pretty cool.

We added a few more beads from a bead stash in the cupboard and set to work.
The finished chime is hanging in our patio, ready to catch the breezes.

This is a home project - but it has my brain a-thinking Reggio thoughts for next year's class chandelier.  Click on the photo to go to the post.  

Maybe next year, we could include some driftwood pieces and thrift shop treasures. 

Maybe we can make a more collaborative piece rather each child having their own string.

Maybe ... Maybe ...

I love imagining the possibilities.
