I can't wait to try out those DIY seed bombs in my garden this spring. I consider anything that requires operating machinery not sewing machines, obviously or dangerous chemicals to be "for adults.
I would consider Quilling more of an adult craft just because it is so intricate. The adult coloring books could also be a bit too detailed for younger children. Any craft, as long as it thrills you, is perfect!
Crafts keep the mind young and working well! Whatever an adult wants to do and they are happy and satisfied with it not my choice but theirs I wouldn't pick out not craft for another adult. Let them choice for themselves. I think adults would enjoy crochet the most as it moves fast and you can complete a project in less time than knitting. Coloring does not appeal to me, but it does to my adult Daughter.
Each person has a preference for what they like to do. Anything that has them using their mind and hands to keep them from getting to where they don't have cognitive use of their minds.
Decorations, pots, using odd things for planters, etc. Just about any craft is great for adults, as we all have different talents and interests. There would be thing that wouldn't be appropriate for children such as those involving sharp tools or chemicals, but I think that any craft that spurs your interest whether easy or not would be appropriate.
Speaking for older males, retired or otherwise, I don't mean to sound sexist, females who are interested would receive the same benefits , and if they're looking for something to take up time and to keep the mind sharp, woodworking groups are definitely and adult craft that does the trick. I've been involved in a group since my retirement and, I find it a great way to meet socially with others, helps keep the mind sharp as you continually have to use math, concentrate on what you're doing and work with others to work out problems etc.
I think that crafting for adults vs children depends on age, ability, and interest of children. Have been crafting with my children for years, and they and now teens and tweens. One loves to paint, another hates it. One is able to knit, but i can't. One is good and drawing. I'm not really sure that there is an adults only craft.
I think that any project with machinery would be for adults only. Thank you for the giveaway. The craft projects or parts intrusively that I would you consider to be for adults specifically are anything having use of power tools, because in the real world we don't want our kids acting like Tim the Tool-man Taylor, and being injured. I would consider most metaworking, jewelry making and woodworking projects to be for adults. You wouldn't want children around sharp tools,crafts or saws. I can't think of any craft that a child cannot learn.
With adult supervision and support most crafts are within the grasp of everyone. It's a nice way to bring a family together. The only crafts that would be for adults only would be ones where you were making some sort of adult toy?
I can't really think of much in the way of crafts where kids cannot be included. I think with supervision kids can do any craft that adults can do. The only thing that might be hard for a child would be knitting, but its hard for me too I have taught most crafts to kids but metalsmithing and stained glass are pretty hard to scale back, mostly because of the materials and chemicals. I think it really depends on the craft, most can at least be done with adult supervision, if they require sharp knives Adult crafts would be those that require the use of knives, saws or other types of sharp objects.
Also anything using caustic chemicals. Very intricate details involving many steps to accomplish the craft would probably be limited to adults. It would all depend on the type of adult crafting. I know in my case, an adult craft is anything I can teach my son to make with me. I the craft projects I consider to be for adults specifically include those that use glass, needles or anything that could hurt the child. Also those that have complicated directions.
I am going to save this information and would also like to know if anyone is working crafts in a nursing home The best adult crafts are lessons on colouring, crocheting and knitting, home accessories and personal accessories, tie dying and remaking items to something useful and decorative, quilting and my personal wish is for instructions on felting. Any craft that requires sharp objects would be better suited for adults than for children, but whatever interests any particular adult is a good craft for him or her.
I, personally, love a lot of different crafts. Crafts for adults would be those that use most complex tools and techniques that lead to other more challenging projects. Any craft that adults can do children can to IF it is adjusted to their abilities. I believe most classes may be altered for any age group. We do oil painting classes, for adults and children, and they all learn a lot and have a great time. Crafts requiring saws, blades or chemicals should be left to adults. Perhaps children could help with other aspects of the craft, such as painting or gluing.
I agree with others who have said crafts involving chemicals, machines, blades, etc are best left to adults or with close adult supervision. Play each song on your playlist and let teams battle to name the tune first until the playlist is over. Keep track of the points throughout the game. We typically play one point for the name of the song, two points for the artist, and one point for the original movie or Broadway musical the song is associated with.
The team with the most points at the end of the playlist wins! You can actually buy this game, but we always just make up our own based on the party theme. This game is one we played first at what I recall as the funniest adult game night ever! This game works best with a smaller group of people like but if you have more, just make more teams. Choose one team to go first. Have that team select one person from their team to be the guesser for the round.
Set the timer for two minutes or however long you choose and tell the acting team members to go. The team will pick up their first card and as a team try to act out the word on the card to get the one guesser to guess the word on the card.
No talking allowed, even amongst the group of people acting out the word. Once the guesser has guessed the word on the card, the team will pick up another card and repeat.
Continue going through cards until the timer has run out. Continue the game until everyone on each team has had a chance to be the guesser or for a pre-determined number of rounds. The team with the most correctly guessed cards is the winner. It sounds easy but three rounds of play makes it seriously one of the most fun party games! Give each guest 10 slips of paper and ask them to write the name of a celebrity that they think everyone or most people will know.
Think Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, etc. This game is better with a smaller number of people like but can still be played with more or less. Explain to your group that there will be three rounds of play, all using the exact same celebrity names, so they need to pay attention and listen while the other team is playing because they might have to guess that celebrity during the second or third round.
Each round will be played in the exact same way, except one main difference. Set your timer for two minutes or however long you want and pick a team to go first. The first team member picks a name out of the bowl, tries to get their team to guess using the round specific instructions , and once their team guesses the person, the next team member will run up and go. Keep playing until the timer runs out then switch teams. Play continues in that round back and forth between teams for two minutes until the entire bowl is empty.
Then move onto the next round and do the same thing. Round 1 — Players must describe the celebrity using only words. They can say anything they want other than the name but only words, no acting. Round 3 — Players must say only one word to describe the celebrity.
Count up how many celebrities each team guessed correctly during round 1, round 2, and round 3. The team that guesses the most celebrities correctly total wins! This game can be played either as individuals or teams. Have everyone stand in a line at the front of the room.
Tell them the first category. Starting with the first person in line, players must name something that falls into that category within 5 seconds. Continue playing in that category until there is only one person left. That person wins that round, which can either mean they win a prize like a bag of candy or they win points that add up at the end of the game!
If you want to play a team version, you have two different options. First, you could have one person from each team stand in the line let the team nominate their player based on the category OR you could have everyone stand in the line, and players win points for their teams. Split your group into teams of people.
Begin your round play. Each round will consist of two parts — the expert and the players see descriptions below. Once the minute is up, have your cupcake expert decide which cupcake is first, second, third place, etc. Decide before the game how many points each place will be, so for instance 1 in each round will be 5 points, 2 will be 4 points, etc.
The team with the most points at the end of all rounds is the winner. To begin the round, the expert will come into the middle of the group so that everyone can watch.
Set the timer for a minute and tell the expert to complete their task. Once the expert is done, have each team choose one team member to come into the middle of the group. Members of each team will then have the same one minute to decorate a cupcake or whatever your task is exactly the same as the expert.
Teams will all compete at the same time so no one gets to watch what the others did before them. Unless you have more tasks than team members, each person on a team can only participate in one task.
The expert picks which one they think was done best OR you can also do a timed thing where they have to say make 10 sock basketballs first. Name that tune is a classic — love the game! The how do you doo game sounds so much fun! Especially at this time of year all I want to do is sing Christmas songs and get in the Christmas mood. Thanks for your awesome ideas to play awesome games.
I will try one of them soon with friends. I hope I will enjoy so much. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.

Players have to act out the celebrity, no words. You can either allow teams to pass once and just put the celebrity in a side pile to not be counted as a point for anyone or just make the team member continue trying until the time runs out and then take the clue out.
Sporcle This is actually a game you can play all over the internet these days. I had no idea what it was until my dad started playing it at our family reunions! The basic idea is that you name a category and have people name things that fall into that category until they run out of ideas and are out. The last person standing wins! Lists of items that fall into a particular category.
So for instance again, Jane Austen books, and not books about love. People could say pretty much anything is about love if they want to! This game takes a bit more planning ahead but is still really fun! I saw it once on a cruise then tried it at an adult game night a few year ago and fell in love with the game! The idea is that you have an expert show your guests how to do something short like a 1-minute tutorial then teams compete to do the same thing they just watched the expert do!
You can ask your guests, family members, or close friends to be those experts. Make sure the tasks are short like 1 minute.
