Tweens are in a very tricky stage of life. They want to be grown up, but they also are little kids. This makes entertaining them difficult as well. One fun way to keep tweens happy during the summer months and help them avoid boredom is to provide them with simple, but rewarding crafts:
Bracelets: Tweens are into being trendy and one of the things that they enjoy is wearing jewelry, so why not have them make it as a craft? You can make all kinds of different jewelry. If you visit a local crafting store, like Robert’s craft, you will find an assortment of beads in every shape, color, size, and material imaginable. You will easily find clasps, wire to string your bracelets on and more. So, make a day of it with your tween. Take them to the craft store, and let them pick out beads to match their favorite outfits. They can make friendships bracelets, charm bracelets, or just a great fashion accessory to match their favorite shirt. You can add watch faces, and make beaded watch bands to add some practicality to the craft. There are endless possibilities with bracelets as crafts, and your tween will spend hours creatively designing jewelry they will love wearing, giving as gifts, and showing off to their friends.
