‘Tis the season for tweens to make expansive wish lists. I’ve compiled top tween gifts of the season, and a craft that tweens are sure to love! Being a mom to a tween (or almost tween depending on who you ask) I know how hard it is to find gifts and seasonal crafts for this in between age. Not quite little kids, not yet teens, they hover somewhere in-between, but don’t worry, there are plenty of fun gifts and seasonal activities for this age range!

Holiday Ornament Craft for Tweens
How to make a Holiday Ornament Craft:
- Wrap wire around pencil to make a spiral about 10″ long. Cut wire at end of spiral.
- Connect the ends of the wire spiral to make a circle and twist ends together to form the circle. Set the wire spiral circle aside.
- Tie a bead to the end of a 1 1/2′ length of string, and add beads 3/4 of the length of the string. Tie a knot at the end to secure the beads on the string.
- Wrap the beaded string loosely around the wire spiral and tie the ends of the strings together to secure on the spiral.
