If you grew up in the '90s, odds are you did a lot of crafts and art projects, whether it was at school, at home, at summer camp, or just of your own volition. When we think back to arts and crafts we did in the '90s, it's easy to forget just how many there were. Sure, we may have used coloring books and scented markers to our hearts content, but that wasn't all we did. We got creative, too.
In fact, given that many of us didn't necessarily have constant access to technological marvels like computers, we spent a lot of time just... occupying ourselves. Between school, after school sports, books, clubs, and more, us '90s kids and teens spent a lot of time being creative. We didn't all grow up to be working artists, but we did get an awful lot out of all that time spent using our imaginations and making stuff with our own two hands. Time wasted, it was not.
Kids and teens today, of course, still do arts and crafts. But there is something different about being creative before technology entered the picture in a big way, and the nostalgia is definitely sweet when we think back to art class and summer camp projects. I'm willing to bet more than a few of these projects will be a total blast from the past. Might be motivation enough to buy a pack of gel pens, right?
