60 Things for Teens To Do at Home

If you’re looking for things for teens to do at home, you’ve come to the right place. I have 4 teens at home right now and I know this quarantine isn’t easy on them at all. I can tell that they’re going stir crazy, especially with it staying lighter outside longer and the weather heating up a bit. I sat down and tried to come up with 101 things for teens to do while at home right now.

60 Things for Teens To Do at Home

Things for Teens to Do at Home

I’m all about trying to keep my kids busy right now. The last thing I want them to be doing is sitting around do nothing. It’s worse than can be to see them moping around saying, “There’s nothing to do here.” Truth? There’s tons of things for teens to do, you just need to make sure you have a list on hand to pull from for your kids!

I wanted to come up with a list of 101 things for teens to do at home to make it easy for all of the moms and dads out there. I with this stay at home quarantine it’s a whole new world for everyone right now.

Summer Bucket List for Teens

I’ve compiled a list of 60 things for teens to do at home. It doesn’t matter exactly how old your teenager is, these activities will work (and for tweens, too!).
