I have found that kids, from babies to older ones, really like wind chimes, and if they are shiny glass ones, all the better!
These are actually less than half of the ones he took that afternoon. When his little sister Evie was about 7 mo's old, they came to visit. There were a few times my daughter would go for a short walk around the complex, and leave both kids in my care. Kai is a piece of cake! Evie at 7 mo's, well that was different story! I had a couple of different wind chimes on my patio and I found she would settle down and become a happy baby when I took her outside and ran my fingers across the wind chime making it sing.
I have some "big" kid who goes by my apartment and once in a while will run their hand across one of my wind chimes making it sing. I can tell the difference between the wind, and a person making it sing! When I'm outside, some of the kids around here will come by and ask if I'll make them make noise! I love it!
Wishing I could be with my Kai and Evie for Christmas, but it's not to be this year. Hopefully next year. I was with them last Christmas,at their home, they are so fun to be around.
