Mother's Day Tree Cans


 I didn't get any surprise gifts for Mother's Day from the girls since they are with me 24/7
so I decided to help them make me something.
I like wind chimes and don't nearly have enough of them
but I do have tin cans.

So I poked holes into the tops of the cans
let the girls draw all over them with Sharpies
and thread yarn through the holes
(I tied the knots)
C cut the yarn to the length she wanted

I strung them up to the tree we hang out under
they were just the right height for the girls to be able to reach
Who would've thought that plain tin cans strung up in a tree would be so much fun
and the 'clink' mixed with laughter is music to my ears




I plan on adding to the tree every time we use a can

Simple and fun
I couldn't have asked for anything better
