What is Kites for Kids?

Kites symbolize the potential for a child to soar and a hope for a world full of happy childhoods. Our signature awareness event, Kites for Kids, provides an opportunity for our clients—children and youth in Allegheny County who are in the foster care system—to anonymously have a fun day learning and exploring at Carnegie Science Center alongside the community at large.

During the event, kites designed by our clients decorate the lobby and special games and activities presented by KidsVoice and our sponsors add a bit of extra fun.

In 2022, adults and kids alike shared laughter and messages of hope; took craft kits home to save for a rainy day, made kites inspired by stained glass and snakes; and, for those who could not join us live, even learned about optical illusions during a short virtual program!

Over the years, Kites for Kids has welcomed thousands of families from Allegheny County and beyond to the Carnegie Science Center to raise awareness and much-needed resources to protect our most vulnerable citizens—abused and neglected children. While things were a little different in 2020 and 2021 when the event went fully remote, we were excited to be able to join together in-person again in spring 2022 for our 16th annual event!
