Painting feathers, making wooden dowel lamps, if your teen makes a couple of these projects, he or she can probably redecorate his or her room at the same time. These craft projects are easy and fun to make, and what every teen could be looking for.
My bonding with the kids normally involves movies and popcorn. Other times we would spend hours in my craft room just tinkering on interesting projects to boost their creativity.
