50 Screen Free Activities for Tweens & Teens

Looking for fun at home, screen free activities for tweens or teens? Look no further! We’ve got 50 boredom busting activity ideas to encourage your tween or teen switch off the TV, stop scrolling and get busy trying something new, re-discovering an activity from their past that they haven’t tried in a while, or learning a new skill.

The list includes ideas for crafting, being active, cooking, games to enjoy with family and friends and a few fun challenges too – Nerf war or paper plane contest anyone? Most of these ideas can be done at home (or at least close by) and many are deliberately open ended so that they act as a jumping off point for kids to decide what that activity will look like for them.

Plus this list is printable so you can keep it handy for whenever your teen is looking for something to do (instructions to download and print can be found at the bottom of this post).
