crafting with grandma - Mother's Day Wind Chimes!

I was browsing on Pinterest the other day, trying to make up my mind as to which craft I'd help my grandsons make for their mom for Mother's Day (Jackie if you are reading this, this is a good place to stop!!!) when I found the perfect idea . . . wind chimes!!! 

This is so perfect because my grandsons can decorate the clay pots however they like - I'll give them permanent ink pens . . . yes, I know the potential for getting ink on them is quite high, but I'll remove their shirts and have anti-bacterial hand gel available because a little of this takes ink of hands . . . and arms . . . and faces . . . pretty much any skin which they may get ink on! And yes, they are more likely than not to get ink on their skin!

Just follow this link and you'll find a list of the supplies you will need and simple directions  so you can help your grandchildren make wind chimes for their mom for Mother's Day! I went out and bought bells and clay pots and a few things to, "add to the fun" and will be all ready for the boys to "create" later today! 

We are planning to celebrate Mother's Day tonight at my house - my mom and dad and family will all be here . . . I'm fixing pork chops, seasoned potato cubes, baby lima beans, homemade cinnamon bread and Tiffany is fixing Chocolate Lasagna for dessert! So, what are you doing to celebrate Mother's Day this year?
