Share these fabulous summer crafts for tweens with your kids ages 10-12. Many can be done alone, others with just minimal help from you!
Ages 10-12, the “tween” years, can be tricky! Kids this age want to be more independent and less childish. But they're not quite ready for the independence that teens can handle.
Summertime is another challenge, since most camps are for younger kids. In our area, all the free library programming we enjoyed every summer is for elementary-aged kids as well.
If your tween is home this summer, introduce some of these fun craft projects! Most of these can be done by your 10-12 year old by themselves. A few may require a little assistance from you.
This is a great time for you to back off and let your tween try new things and succeed on their own.
All of these make great projects for tweens to do with their friends as well!
If your tween is into STEM, too, get some ideas for Summer STEM Activities for Tweens.
Is your tween a big reader? These are my kids' suggestions of Fantasy Books with Strong Heroines, books they read over and over!
