Crafts for Tweens

Browse through this list of crafts tweens might enjoy.


I picked out these craft projects especially for kids from age 11 to age 14. Those kids sometimes referred to as 'Tweens' or preteens. This is a tough age and here are some fun crafts to hopefully bring smiles to their faces. The best judge as to whether your child can handle these crafts or not is you. For this age group, you might also want to check out craft projects for elementary-aged kids or craft projects for teens. If you have other age groups you want to find craft projects for, check out my lists of favorite crafts for different ages. For even more craft fun with your tween, check out these craft kits.
