These crafting activities for tweens serve as dynamic activities that allow the imagination to blossom. Whether to get a fashionable look for less or in order to create something special that makes your bedroom feel like your own, the sheer pride and joy felt after making something with one's own hands is almost unbeatable.

While many of us were tasked with sorting through books or glossy magazine pages for crafting ideas, today's tween has seemingly endless options thanks to the massive online DIY community. A great offline activity on restless summer afternoons, these crafting activities for tweens also have dynamic real world applications, such as fine motor coordination, self-regulation and bilateral coordination, to name a few.
