T-shirts: Clothing is one of the ways people express themselves, and crafting is also a form of expression, why not combine the two to give your tween a fun crafting activity to pass the afternoon with? You can buy plain colored t-shirts in your tween’s size, and then provide them with fabric glue, gems, ribbons, fabric paint, buttons, pins, and other things to decorate their shirt however they wish. They might put their favorite song lyric or quote. They might put their name and bedazzle it with jewels. They might just decorate it haphazardly for a fun and funky look. The point is, they will have as much fun wearing it as making it. You just need t-shirts, hot glue or fabric glue, iron on letters, pictures, etc. and other decorating accessories.
