Whether your kids are on vacation from school, the weather is bad, or you’re just stuck inside, this easy kids craft will help beat the boredom.
As we speak, my kids are finishing their first week of spring break. Because of recent health concerns across the country, spring break has been extended another two weeks. Usually, I would panic at the thought of having to entertain my kids while working from home and maintaining a home for three and a half weeks, but not this time.
I’m prepared with lots of fun activities to keep them busy as well as educational activities to keep them learning.

One of the biggest issues moms face when their kids are home from school for an extended period of time is keeping them busy and, of course, keeping them from arguing with each other.
My kids love doing crafts, so anytime they start to complain about being bored or start arguing with each other, I get out the craft supplies. I almost always have basic craft supplies in my house. Markers, colored paper, glue, and odds and ends we get from the Dollar Store are in the craft cupboard.
Have your kids choose the colors they want to use in their kite. We chose four colors for each kite.
Download the template here and print it onto the colored paper. If you don’t want to download the template or don’t have a printer, you can simply draw a kite shape on your paper and cut it out. Make sure that all of your kite pieces are the same size, or they won’t line up when gluing them together.
After cutting all of your pieces out, fold each piece in half.
