The teens that attend Dorris Van Doren's weekly Teen Hangout program have been battling the post-holiday slump by participating in a lot of creative activities.
During one crafternoon, the teens did foil embossing. They drew designs on cardboard and then traced over their sketch using a hot glue gun. They covered the cardboard with foil and then colored their artwork.
Another Thursday, the teens made colorful string dolls. They shaped the bodies using flower wire and then wrapped yarn around to create bulk. They decorated their dolls by stitching on faces and adding long hair.
On Valentine's Day, our teens celebrated the day with treats. While they snacked on cookies and ice cream, they made paper flowers out of tissue paper. They experimented with multiple colors, different petal shapes, and even different sizes of tissue paper.
We have a lot of fun activities planned for this spring. Check out our calendar to see what will be happening next!
