Wind Chimes

I found a nice wind chime kit at the Y100 store and I thought it would be nice for Nikki to do the activity.  I always try to keep art activities simple for Nikki because his obsessive-compulsive nature makes it hard for him to enjoy the mess.  He would get a little spot of paint on his finger and he would rush to the bathroom to wash it off.  So I think that simple art activities would expose him to such “messes” but at the same time, still make him appreciate the activity and have fun.  Here are some photos I took:

This is the kit.

Took this photo after we painted each part. I had to help Nikki because the parts were small and he always ended up with paint on his fingers.  Here, he is unraveling the thread to tie the pieces together.

The finished wind chime.  It looks really nice, if I say so myself.  🙂
