Tonight has probably been the best Teen Crafternoon I’ve hosted so far! We made stuffed toy taxidermy. I got the idea from the Dollar Store Crafts Blog. It’s one of those projects that looks really difficult, but is actually insanely simple. My teens had a blast, fur was flying everywhere! They really seemed to enjoy creating some stuffed animal carnage.
Plywood circles – 99 cents each at Michael’s (I spent approximately $10)
Paint and paintbrushes – free, we already had some at the library
Glue guns and glue sticks – free, we already had some at the library
Old stuffed animals – free, the teens brought their own
Total – Approximately $10
Active Time: 22 minutes
So, if you’re look for a cheap, quick, and easy craft to do with your teens – I highly recommend this one. Here are the instructions.
