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
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.
Our kids aren’t used to a world of doing NOTHING, they’re used to going-going-going. I’m going to be honest with you, it wasn’t easy coming up with 101 ideas… but I didn’t stop till I did!
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!).
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 “things for teens to do” activities are not in any particular order, I just outlined as I went down the list:

Once we’re done with this home quarantine, there’s so many things that they can do outside the house! I’ve come up with a list of 101 things for teens to do, too – but all of these things don’t require you to actually be at home!
I’m hoping this ends soon! I just want to make sure you’re prepared with things for teens to do at home because it’s not always easy to come up with ideas! Use this as a gauge for yourself and your family.
I know I mentioned this above, but we watched Tiger King on Netflix with our teens! OMG, if you haven’t seen this it’s WILD! It’s a crazy show and we binging it together. It’s simple things like this that are nice things to do right now.
