Whether you’re raising a teenager, or you just remember how it was when you were that age, teenagers can be some of the most difficult people to please! If you are looking to bond with your teenager, or you just have a group of them needing some entertainment, you may want to consider trying out one of these incredible DIY projects!
1. Bath Bombs
Any teenage girl will tell you that the love of bath bombs is a real. It’s even better when you can save some money, and relax at the same time! You only need a few household ingredients (like baking soda, citric acid, epsom salts, food coloring, and water) to make these, and it hardly requires any time at all!
2. Polka Dot Phone Case
Buy a phone case at Target (there are tons of totally cute ones in the dollar section!) and have them customize their cases with fun nail polish. Everyone has gorgeous nail polish colors laying around, and it is so easy to draw with the tiny brushes!
