Sharing is caring!

Is there anything more fun on a winter day than DIY crafts for tweens?

There are so many types of projects and crafts out there. 

Painting, sewing, yarn crafts, DIY beauty products, and making your own jewelry.

Is your tween looking to make items for their room?

What about homemade gifts?

Maybe they’d even like to try a hand at selling to have some money all their own.

Most of these ideas would work great for either gift-giving or selling at craft shows, yard sales, or flea markets.
