This summer teens made sidewalk paint and painted indoors and out. They made pet rocks, worry stones, and garden stones. They tie dyed t-shirts and socks and reconstructed t-shirts into pillows and other styles. They made pendants and magnets with shrinky dinks and created their own time capsules. They made their own superhero characters and created indoor cave paintings. They had movie events , gaming, & much more! Check out some of the fun:
