Ideas for Teens in Quarantine:
I did a post about ideas for younger kids and for adults (and many of the adult ideas can be used for teens, too) last If you have a special teen in your life, please share with them:
Shout out to my dear student Tori for helping me with these ideas!
-Really clean your room and closet. Watch Kon Mari method videos on youtube for inspiration. Have a goal of x number of bags to donate.
-If you are a senior, call college admissions and get your ducks in a row. They are still available for you by phone. Apply for community scholarships. You didn’t have time to do this when in school and now you do.
-Watch a show virtually with a friend using Facetime, Skype, or Zoom
-Have a virtual meal – Order the same food and eat together virtually!
-Have a cooking challenge with a friend
-Make a friend a playlist and they make you one
-Plan a pretend vacation for a friend and vice versa
-Create a fantasy wardrobe for a friend. Money is no object!
-Read a book you always wanted to read
-Get an adult coloring book or print pages online
-Start a journal; this will be important later on in life when you look back on these strange times.
-Explore a new podcast
-Start your own podcast
-Learn to meditate; there are lots of apps for this
-Do a face mask/beauty treatment
-Cook for the family
-Do a Chopped Challenge where you put together a basket of ingredients
-Find an online exercise program
-Learn a TikTok dance and record it
-Write thank you notes to send via snail mail to people who have shaped you
-Start a gratitude journal and write 3 things you are grateful for each day
-Watch old home movies
-Offer to teach grandparents how to use technology – over the phone of course!
Any other ideas you would throw out?
