Fall Teen Program Ideas

Everything is different this year. And harder. But maybe it will allow for some different kids of programming. It's hard to know exactly what to do.

But that's not all that different from teen services. You never really know what's going to be an amazing program and which one might be a dud.

And it might be a chance to reach more teens, do different types of programs, and try new things.

Some of these ideas might be great cross-over ideas for adults too. As usual, these program ideas are from Pinterest!

Over the summer at my library, we did lots of Take and Make bags. And we'll still do those.

One of the most popular themed bags was our Foodie Fun.

Foodie Fun:
We put bags together with some ingredients that not everyone would have at home.
There are videos on Facebook and our YouTube channel.

We're going to do more of these.

We have six fall recipes planned.
Here's the September one:

Rock Candy:
I've always wanted to make this with teens, but the timing!
However, if they are making this at home, the timing doesn't matter as much.

Art Bags:
These seem to go pretty well over the summer too.
Book Art would be a fun project - again, the timing is tricky for inside the library, but not for virtual.

Art Nights:
We haven't done this yet, but I would LOVE to!
Here's a good fall one.

Spa Night:
This could be a whole series. You do bath salts, face masks, bath fizzies....
