Teen Pop-Up Crafts at Home

We miss you!  And we had so many fun things planned for you!


Since we can't share our pop-up crafts with you in person right now, we thought we'd give you some craft projects that you can do at home with supplies you should be able to find around your house. 

Each craft includes a list of what you need, instructions, a printable PDF of the instructions, and a video demonstration created by someone who works with teens at OPL.  We hope you'll recognize some faces!

Keep an eye out, as we'll keep adding to this list for as long as we can't be together in the library.  Are you ready? Let's get started.

And, please share your finished crafts with us.  We'd love to see!  Email us your photos or post and tag us on social media.  You can find us on Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, and Twitter.
