Things to Do During Quarantine for Teens

As the mother of 4 teens, I know this isn’t easy or fun for teens right now at all. To be it lightly, it really sucks for them. I’m constantly trying to think of things to do during quarantine for teens because it can’t just be about video games (although it has been a saving grace for socialization).

Things to Do During Quarantine for Teens

Last spring when the quarantine began I let my 4 teenage sons basically play video games all they wanted to. Here 51 things to do during quarantine for teens. I tried to come up with a variety of things that would work for different kids. There’s definitely not a one size fits all. Everyone has different wants and needs.

When it comes to trying to think of things to do during quarantine for teens it needs to be at home or at least somewhere were you can be outside, away from people. I think my teens are thinking they will be chained to the couch right now and that’s not the case!

There are a bunch of things to do during quarantine for teens that will keep everyone happy, busy and moving. You want to make sure your teens are having a good time. It’s more than just the physical health right now, it’s the mental and emotional health, too.

When we’re thinking of things to do with teens or activities for teens to do, it’s important to always have a list in mind. The last thing you want is to have to stop and think about things to do. You lose their attention too quickly. Take it from me with 4 teens, I like to capture their attention immediately!

Teens and Finance

With quarantine, I like to have a solid go-to list of everything that can be done. It’s important to have it all laid out in a list like fashion so they can breeze through and start picking out things that they would prefer to do. This way it’s just easy when your thinking of things to do during quarantine for teens.
