Some fun activities for teens include paintball, miniature golf and events like concerts and music festivals. Some teens prefer indoor activities like making crafts, playing video games and watching television. One fun activity for a group of teens is to host a tournament, such as a table tennis tournament or video game tournament with friends.
Another activity that involves friends and their parents is a house hop, in which each house has a different planned activity for the day. The group starts at one house and participates in that activity, and then everyone goes to the next house to enjoy the next activity. House hops are great for boring summer days or rainy days when outdoor activities aren't possible.
Teens who prefer quiet, indoor activities may enjoy crafts. One fun group craft is to make a collage; every teen brings a magazine, which they swap to find pictures and words. The collages can be given to someone else or placed in their lockers at school or on their bedroom walls.
Outdoor activities that teens often enjoy include heading to the nearby beach or lake for a day in the sun, going skiing or snowboarding, or simply playing at the nearest tennis courts.
