Awesome : Fun & Creative DIY Crafts For Teens

School just let out for the summer and I’m about to have 2 tween girls at home… all day long. To keep them busy, I need some cool crafts for teens!

They are just a little too old for day camps anymore, and too young for me to force them to go get a job. So the are at that inbetween stage of just laying around the house on their electronics all day.

The great thing about this list of crafts for teens is that all these project ideas are actually cool in their eyes. No baby crafts here. So your teens can deifnitly do these projects with firends or by themselves.
