We have already discussed a lot about what kids can do, you can get them to learn something new, you can engage them with different games, or you can plan the day so that every family member is taking turns handling kids. When you have exhausted all the options here is another one. Craft work with paper folding has been around for ages.
During our childhood, schools would organize such activities. In some schools, till class fifth, there are separate craft sessions.
