Now is the perfect time to start planning some fun holiday library programs for teens. 2015 was the inaugural year of the Holidaze Crafts for Teens  program at my library, where teens made their own holiday gifts to give to family and friends. It was a great success.
It's so easy to do a Holidaze program. All you need are several stations (tables) with a variety of different projects such as creating holiday cards, ornaments, gift tags and other neat holiday crafts. It's also easy to create a gift wrapping station for teens to wrap all of the cool gifts they make. Don't forget to have a sweet refreshment center, too; get some hot cocoa and cookies, and you are all set!
This year I am taking our Holidaze craft program out of the library and setting up at our community’s Tree Lighting Festival. If you are up for planning your own holiday craft event for teens this year, here are some fun activities to try!
