what to do when you're a bored teenage girl

Don’t know what to do when you’re a bored teenage girl at home? Here are 25 things to do at home or outdoors when you’re bored!

It’s always a good idea to have a running list of things to do in the case that you’re completely free and want something to occupy your time.

Try keeping that list in your notes app or on a printed piece of paper in your room to always refer to when you need it.

With that being said, let’s get into the things to do!

Things to Do When You’re a Bored Teenage Girl at Home

If you’re stuck at home and don’t have access to a car, these ideas will keep you busy as a teenager!

1) Sell Old Clothing

Selling old clothing is not only something that can keep you occupied. It also has a few benefits such as having to go through your closet.

It’s also a fun way to make money, or you can donate it if you’d prefer that (or if the clothing is unsellable).

2) Watch a New Movie

A new movie always hits different when you’re home alone, especially if the movie is about teenagers.

Here’s a fantastic list of teen movies to watch that are super relatable and fun!

3) Update Your Music Playlist

If you’re always complaining that your playlists suck (like I do), then now is the best time to sit down and go through new music.

Create new playlists or update old ones to match the style that you’re into nowadays. Music taste always changes, so you can do this often when you’re bored at home.

4) Do a Long Face Care Routine

Taking care of your body is never a waste of time, especially when it comes to your face!

Grab your face washes, exfoliators, face masks, moisturizers, and whatever else you got. Go all in and make it a fun experience to care for your face.

5) Stretch (Work on Flexibility)

The best way to prevent injury in the future is to stretch. If you want to avoid injuries and sitting in uncomfortable positions, working on your flexibility will always come in handy.

Find a quick Youtube video to stretch a certain muscle group and take your time. Don’t forget to breathe!

6) Learn a New Skill on Youtube

Speaking of Youtube, there are millions of subjects and skills that you can learn pretty quickly with a simple Youtube search.

Ever wanted to learn how to negotiate, make more money, learn body language, etc? Now’s a perfect time to educate yourself on useful topics (unlike school).

7) Solve Riddles & Puzzles

Everybody enjoys a good brain game to enhance your IQ and develop better attention to details.

Hop on Google or Youtube and find some fun riddles that you can solve for hours!

8) Cook or Bake a Nice Dish

As a teenager, having the skill of cooking or baking is extremely valuable and impressive!

Get a recipe you’ve been dying to try and go ham in the kitchen. This can also be a super fun thing to do when you’re bored at home with a friend!

9) Take Surveys for Money

There are tons of survey sites out there that allow teenagers to make a few quick bucks for answering questions.

Check out sites like Ipsos I-Say and Valued Opinions to make your first dollars online in no time!

10) Clean

Closets, drawers, bathrooms, shoes, bed, desk, laptops, phones, you name it!

There are so many parts of your room or life that probably go untouched for a long time. Use your time wisely and get organized!

11) Read a Book (Listen to an Audio Book)

Book and audio books are a great way to pass time and learn something new in the meantime. It could also be for pure entertainment purposes.

I highly recommend reading a book on how to better yourself or improve in some part of your life. Those types of books are always priceless!

12) Message Old Friends

A lot of times, we forget the people we were closest with and slowly start to drift apart. Send those few friends (that you’re thinking about right now) a quick text to check in.

It never hurts to rebuild those connections with people you used to love hanging out with all the time.

13) Make Music

Play an instrument, write a song, or even make beats for fun!

If you don’t have any musical abilities, you can still have hours of fun on sites like Incredibox (allows you to make cool beats without any effort).

14) Take Personality Tests

Personality tests are probably the most fun online activities you can do when you’re bored at home.

Use sites like 16 Personalities and Truity to learn more about yourself and how your personality affects others around you.

15) Hike

Hiking is not only a great way to kill time, but it also allows you to get in touch with nature and burn a few calories in the process.

If you’re underage, it’s best to hike with a friend or to at least let someone know where you’re going. Other than that, it’s a super fun time!

16) Go Thrifting

If you have an area nearby with a bunch of thrift shops around, you can spend an entire day walking around and finding cool stuff.

Plus, the clothing and other items are usually super cheap, so it’s a low cost option to do outdoors!

17) Visit Extended Family

Aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins… they all miss you. Give them a call and see if it’s a good time to visit.

Head over there, learn more about their lives, get advice, or just have a fun chat about life. Who knows? You might learn something life-changing!

18) Go to the Gym

Now before you say “I don’t even have a gym membership”, there’s a way to work around this…

If it’s your first time at a specific gym, many times a trainer will introduce you to the gym or even give you a free 3-day pass to go whenever you want.

Check online and see if there are any free options to get in a good workout!

19) Treat Yourself to Something Nice

Sometimes the best way to pass the time is by doing something that doesn’t necessarily have an end goal.

Go out and buy yourself a nice lunch, get a massage, or have a spa day. Just you by yourself and no one else.

Consider it the best version of “me time” there is!

20) Drive Around a New City

Maybe you haven’t done much exploring with your car since you could drive. Maybe you’ve been dying to visit a new place that’s 1 or 2 hours away.

Whatever it may be, get some friends or go alone and explore a new city filled with tons of stuff to do.

21) Write Your Thoughts Outside

When you’re a bored teenage girl at home, it’s easy for your head to go nuts thinking about all the stresses of being a teen.

Go outdoors or drive to a nearby park with a notebook and start writing every little thing that comes to your brain.

Don’t worry about punctuation, spelling, grammar, nothing. Just write until your head is clear!

22) Take Your Dog to the Dog Park

If you’re fortunate enough to have a dog at home, you can make them extremely happy by taking them out to the dog park.

You can also play with them outside, give them a bath, or simply take them on a relaxing walk. Dogs have tons of energy that they’d love to expel with you!

23) Get a Car Wash

There’s no better time to get a car wash than when you’re bored out of your mind with nothing to do.

Turn it into a fun thing by organizing the interior or even washing it by yourself. Either way, you end up with a squeaky clean car.

24) Go to Open Houses

The best way to kill time and have fun is by going to open houses and pretending like you’re going to buy the homes.

Grab a friend (or even a parent) and go explore some cool interior designs that you’ve never seen before. Discuss what you would change or how much you like the house!

Typing something as simple as “open houses near me” will open a lot of doors to finding out where to go.

25) Have a Photoshoot

Dress up, get all pretty, grab some friends, find a cool background, and take pictures together. You could also make it a selfie day if your friends are busy.

It never hurts to have some updated pics for Insta or for your own personal enjoyment!
