I recently got 3 new teenage clients (14-15), and we are in the very early stages of therapy where we are still building rapport and having them get comfortable with me. I thought it might be nice to do some holiday/Christmas themed projects with them since they all seem to be enthused about the upcoming holidays. So, I need ideas.

Preferably the projects would be fairly simple, can be done in an hour, and wouldn’t require too much concentration since I do need to be able to talk with them throughout the session. Nothing that is really messy, or requires a bunch of materials since I’m not allowed to spend more than $15 on supplies. They have all mentioned wanting holiday decor, but not being able to get anything due to family finances, so I’m thinking something they could put in their bedrooms or around the house.

Suggestions?
