Summer has been sweltering so far and we haven't even reached the halfway mark. These fans are the height of fun and function for kids to make and enjoy.

Make your own fans with paper, wooden dolly pegs and some string. There are free templates available at Mr. Printables; choose full color or the black and white version for coloring, or kids can draw their own freehand. These would be great for party decor and favors. Get all the details at Mr. Printables.
