Bored? Best Teen Fun!

Scarlet Caragan, Staff Writer

     Have you ever been in your house sitting there with nothing to do? Well, here are some things to have the best teen fun! Teen fun can come in so many ways from finding new hobbies, to making money. Here are some of the three things I do that people around your age have some fun with. 


Join School Clubs!

     One way to have fun as a teenager is to join after school clubs because you can learn to socialize with other people and maybe even learn what hobbies you’re actually into! According to the, “Afterschool programs can support social, emotional, cognitive, and academic development, reduce risky behaviors, promote physical health, and provide a safe and supportive environment.

Get a Simple Job

     Besides after school activities, another way to have fun as a teenager is to find a safe way to make money such as chores, babysitting, or even mowing lawns because it can show you how to deal with money. You can also have new experiences that challenge you. What the Treatment Centers Evolve say about this is that “jobs help kids develop a sense of responsibility. Jobs help kids develop a greater sense of self.” In conclusion, getting a safe side job as a teenager can reveal you to many responsibilities and learning experiences in life.


Create a Bucket List

     If you can’t get a simple job or join a school club because you can’t leave the house, there’s always a good ol’ fashion bucket list! A  bucket list, if you didn’t know, is a list of things you want to do during your lifetime. This can be very fun since people like to create so many goals in life. It becomes a plan for an adventurous path to feel the great feeling of accomplishment when completing a task. And the best thing is you choose the fun thing you want to do! There are so many ideas and so many possibilities for the future just thinking about it wants me to make two bucket lists!


     In conclusion, if you are bored, cold, or sad, these are some activities you can do for the best teen fun! Joining some school clubs can impact your social skills and know everyone more. Get a simple and SAFE job to teach yourself responsibilities with money and challenges that are completely new and you can solve to be ready for in the future, and finally, create a bucket list which can help you create so many goals you want to accomplish in life! There are so many times when being a teenager is boring, I get it! But doing all of these activities above made me so active and always kept my life moving. If you ever try them out, I hope you can feel the same amazing experience many of us teen have felt. Which one will you do first?
