50 Things To Do with Tweens
If you’re wondering what do tweens like, this is a laundry list of things for you to do. These are 50 things to do with tweens that will keep you busy and occupied.
Tweens are right in that in-between where they’re not quite teens yet, but they’re also older than elementary. These are fun things for you to do because there is something for everyone.
I’ve compiled a list of 50+ things for tweens to do at home and beyond. It doesn’t matter exactly how old your tween is, these activities will work (and for tweens, too!). If you’re wondering about the teens in your life, I’ve got you covered, too.
This list was my favorite thing to create because it’s personal to me, I really need things to do for my kids. I also wanted to make sure these activities were fun things, too. These are things to do with tweens you will love (I promise!).
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 are tons of things for tweens to do, you just need to make sure you have a list on hand to pull from for your kids!
