We're on the cusp of Spring. Although illogical, we can't help but feel as though welcoming some outdoor and traditional Spring images indoors will help the warm weather along. A great and inexpensive idea to spruce up a play area or child's bedroom is to decorate with kites.

We are still inspired by this photo we spotted last summer. To get a quick injection of color and dimension, consider this beautiful handmade nylon butterfly kite we found. It's swooping silhouette is stretched over a bamboo frame. $19.99 here.

If you need something a bit smaller, try one of these mini dragon or butterfly kites for $9.99 each.

We just ordered this paper dragonfly kite from Pearl River Mart (currently out of stock).
