The older my daughters get, the more I look forward to seeing what they would like to make as a gift for our extended family. They are always making some sort of creative Christmas crafts. Last year the girls were all about the website BitStrips…a site that lets you make your own comic strips. So, the girls made custom “12 Days of Christmas” comic strips for our families. They were hilarious.
This year the challenge is on to come up with something creative and personalized. Thus, I decided to put together this round up of gifts for tweens to make. They are beyond the days of making handprint crafts…now it’s all about sewing, duct tape and washi tape. What will your tween be crafting this year?
