When the fall season starts to set in, the temperature begins to drop and so many teens go and stay inside the house. But they run out of ideas, after being outside all summer and doing outdoors activities. So instead of being bored, what should they do? To relieve the boredom of being inside all day, teens need to find some indoors activities that they enjoy. This is where I come in. I am going to give some options of activities that teens may enjoy doing indoors during those cold, blustery fall days.
While most teens love to eat, I have not come across many teens that love to cook or know how. Cooking is a very good thing to know and learn especially during the high school years. Cooking can be a fun activity. You can cook the food you choose and love to eat. There are only two boundaries with cooking, you have to have the ingredients in the right amount, and you need the time to do the cooking.
Reading and writing are great ways for teens to broaden their horizons and to express their feelings. Reading opens up your imagination and helps you learn about new things, while reading topics of your choice that interest you. Writing not only gets your feelings and ideas down on paper, but it also could be a career later on. There’s no limit to what you can read or write, just let your creativity and imagination flow.
Crafts, such as painting, scrapbooking, or drawing, spur on creativity and helps teens feel better about themselves after seeing their creation come to life, succeeding at the craft, and being proud that they did something themselves!
Photography could also be an indoor activity, but being indoors limits the types of photos you can capture.
Video games and electronics are very popular with teens, especially male teens, as indoor activities, yet sitting in front of a TV, video game system, or computer and playing video games all day actually hurts creativity because your brain is not stimulated. Video games and other electronics are fun and enjoyable, but go for an activity that spurs creativity.
Inviting friends over to your house to hang out and do fun activities, will not only relieve your boredom, but will relieve the boredom of your friends as well. So instead of being alone, you can be with others.
