Hello! Today I'd love to share with you a bit about a Musical Garden.
Our community centre has great outdoor spaces for the children, and one of those spaces is a Musical Garden. In this garden there are homemade wind chimes and a hanging xylophone made of metal pipes. On this day we decided to add a couple more wind chimes to the mix.
I laid out all the things we brought to put together, and while I was doing this, my one son pulled out a book he had been given and started to read. I love how my boys do this so spontaneously.
We drilled holes in the wood and then for this first one we laced plastic coated wire through the holes and attached these plastic whirly do things we found at the dump to it. Then since they had these little holes in the bottom of them we attached a bell to each of them with fishing line.
For the second one we used fishing line and tied it around wooden beads to hold things in place along the piece of wood.
We attached bells, smaller pieces of driftwood and some wooden beads along the fishing line.
The boys looked all around the musical garden and decided that they wanted to hang the new chimes on the climbing tree. This tree has always been a favourite of my kids at the park. Now someone has so amazingly built a bench around it and I can sit while they climb.
Now, I can listen to the chimes as well.
It is a fun place to be, and just relax.
Do you have a special park that you like to go to?
Thanks for dropping by!
Hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy perhaps building something interesting for you or someone else.
