Paper Plate Snake Kites
Let the child use crayons or markers
to scribble all over a paper plate. Use lots of different colors.
When the child is finished
scribbling, cut the plate into a spiral. Form a head at the center.
Punch a hole and add a string.
Let the child run and watch their
snake kite fly.
