TPiB: Quick and Easy Crafts
If your schedule is anything like mine, you are always pressed for time. There are meetings, book orders, programs to plan, staffing emergencies, desk time…. Things always eat up what time you have, and I can always use easy crafts when it comes time for “crafternoons“ or movie nights with my tweens and teens. I’m usually flying solo with a group of ten or more, so the less involved the better. Here are some of my favorite easy go-to crafts that have as few steps as possible. Have some go-to crafts that you absolutely love? Share in the comments! We’re sharing ours this month as part of our National Craft Month celebration with The Library as Incubator Project.
Materials Needed: Pony beads in any and every color. Zip lock bags. Cords for threading.
