Are you looking for some great crafts for teen boys? There are a ton of great posts on crafts for tweens and even crafts for teen girls, but there just isn’t much out there for boys! Despite the stereotype, boys like to make things too. Which is exactly why I put together this post of crafts for teen boys! Disclosure: this post contains commissioned links.
Below, you’ll find an amazing list full of all the ideas you need for crafts for teen boys!
While these are great for teen girls as well, I find that my “teen crafts” lists tend to veer toward the girly. You’ll find lots of beaded jewelry and glittery stuff, but if you have a boy, he just may not go for that!
If he does – that’s awesome. I know a few boys who love making jewelry. But if not… you may simply find yourself lacking in ideas for crafts for teen boys.
These crafts for teen boys focus on things that are stereotypically “boyish” so that you can be pointed in the right direction. Of course, if you have a girl that loves these there is nothing wrong with that. I’m obsessed with the Tetris crafts and the LEGO stationery holder, and I’m not just a girl – I’m supposed to be a grown-up girl.
