Summer is the time of year for catching some rays, guilty pleasure reading, and of course some DIY projects. Today I’ve got a great list for you, it’s packed full of DIYs for Teens. These are all projects you can do with your teen or let them go at it alone for some relaxing craft time.
Why do summer DIYs?
I love to craft year round but I try to have a few summer DIYs for teens on hand for those days when it’s too hot to be outside and the kids start to get a little restless. With the help of these great projects they can have fun, I don’t have to stress about planning a whole barrage of entertainment, and the end results are useful and adorable!
One of the other reasons I totally love these fun DIY crafts for teens during the summer is that they can be done with mostly on hand supplies. Sure, I keep some general craft supplies on hand, but with just a few clicks on Amazon I can have everything they need for a few projects delivered right to my door.
