From Pop-Up Paper Toys to Carnival Ice Cream Containers

By focusing on more traditional play activities such as coloring, dress up and do-it-yourself projects, this collection of November 2014 youth ideas attempts to steer children and teens away from technology in order to get them working with their hands more. Of course, the social aspect of these activities also play a huge role. It is easy to be solo these days as fun video games and mobile apps continue to launch regularly.

Yet this collection of November 2014 youth ideas round out such digital pastimes in refreshingly nostalgic ways. Both parents and their children will get a kick out of these concepts. In one simple case, an Etsy seller has designer creative crayon characters to play and draw with. In another, a couch is easily converted into a fort.
