101 Fun Hobbies for Teenage Girls

Updated on June 15, 2018

My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I love writing articles that bring a little creativity to everyday life.

Boys typically easily entertain themselves with their naturally rough and tumble personalities. They can go out and get their hands dirty and come back with a smile that screams how productive they have just been. Us girls, on the other hand, don't exactly feel like spending our day playing sports, or whatever it is they were doing out there!

But just because we don't feel like playing basketball or learning how to play golf, doesn't mean we want to do nothing! Here’s a whole list involving everything from technology, to nature, to art! (Some of it can even earn you a few bucks with some clever marketing!)

Smartphone Hobbies

You never go anywhere without it anyway, so why not have a hobby you can literally take with you anywhere you go?

  1. Start a blog.
  2. Start a vlog (video blog)!
  3. Learn about coding. (We need more girl coders!)
  4. Get into app development.
  5. Create a Pinterest board.
  6. Get on Instagram.
  7. Check out Snapchat.
  8. Play Candy Crush.
  9. Make funny memes.
  10. Shop your favorite stores! (That totally counts as a hobby!)

  12. Play Farm Heroes. (So addicting!)
  13. Read an ebook.

  15. Dabble in graphic design. (A great skill to add to a resume!)
  16. Learn something new by watching Youtube tutorials.
  17. Join a forum for something you're passionate about.
  18. Make a digital scrapbook.

Arts & Crafts Hobbies

Let the creativity flow with a hobby that'll give the right side of your brain a workout! Arts and crafts are not only a great outlet for your creative side, but finished crafts can be turned into gifts or even be sold on Etsy for a little extra shopping money! Plus, you'll always know what you want for Christmas: More supplies!

  1. Learn how to draw caricatures. (Would be a great party trick!)

  5. Paint with watercolors.

  9. Sew a quilt.
  10. Get a needle felting kit.
  11. Make really cool sand art. (But with less saxophone!)
  12. Try to draw something in 3D!
  13. Make a fleece tie blanket.
  14. Tie-dye anything! (Keep the 60's alive!)
  15. Make scented candles or wax melts. (Mixing scents to make your own unique fragrance is super fun!)
  16. Mix your own perfume scent.
  17. Try origami.
  18. Make friendship bracelets.
  19. Paint pottery.
  20. Decorate phone cases.
  21. Make Pinterest DIY projects for your room.

Beauty Hobbies

I'm not suggesting you devote hours and hours to making yourself more beautiful than you already are, because you don't need to, but it could be fun learning a new skill that you can teach your friends!

  1. Learn how to apply acrylic nails.
  2. Learn how to put it hair curlers. (Doing your hair for school will be so much faster!)
  3. Learn how to French braid.

  5. Sunbathe at the beach.
  6. Perfect the smokey eye.
  7. Watch makeup tutorials. (This is amazing!)
  8. Paint nail art.
  9. Learn how to do movie makeup.
  10. Get crazy trying new hairstyles.
  11. Learn how to contour.
  12. Learn how to thread eyebrows.

Fitness Hobbies

Working out can not only make you look better, but it can make you feel better! And eventually, you might even really enjoy it!

  1. Get into yoga.

  14. Learn how to ice skate.
  15. Learn how to skateboard.
  16. Go mountain biking or dirt biking. (Depending on your area's terrain!)

  14. Brew gourmet loose leaf tea.
  15. Write a cookbook.
  16. Start a food blog.
  17. Start a cooking show Youtube channel.

Hobbies to Do With Friends

Starting a new hobby can be exciting, but how much more fun will it be when you bring your friends along for the ride! So grab your girls and figure out which hobby everyone's the most interested in trying!

  1. Play laser tag. (Who said boys get to have all the fun?)

What a list! Hopefully you took some notes for a teenage girl you know, or if you are the teenage girl, take some of these ideas and run with them. Exploring new hobbies is a healthy way to expand your interests and even meet new people within those interests.

Whether it’s a rainy day or a sick day, there are some hobbies on here for teenage girls that they will love. Some people actually make a hobby out of collecting hobbies! You can never have too many hobbies!

What's your favorite type of hobby?

      You helped me a lot, I finished both English and Spanish courses ( grek hehe) and I needed a new hobby. But a lot of things in your list are just things to do.

      Lily from the post two months ago; this list included several sports ideas, had skateboarding on the list (Number 15 in fitness hobbies) and it wasn't sexist at all. Maybe it was following a stereotype, but think about it, stereotypes are there for a reason. Also, this article was written by a girl. Calling a girl sexist for using a stereotype about girls is like calling a black person racist for making black jokes. (In saying that I'm doing nothing wrong, as two of my BEST friends are black.) Honestly, if anyone on this page is doing anything wrong, it's you. SO WHAT if you don't like anything on this list. If you want to play football, do it, nobody is stopping you just by making a list that doesn't directly apply to you! Go hate somewhere else please and thank you. Tatiana, this list is amazing, thanks for the help!

      This didn’t help why do people Always think girls will do hobbies with their friends what if they didn’t have friends or hate crafts I came here so I can see what sports I can do and all I get is crafts,go to the Gym or something with you friends NO N-O with boys it’s different their options are sports or skateboarding or a club what if a boy wants to do crafts people will probably say “Haha what you like crafts? Only girls do that” Why is this world sexist these days let a girl play football or baseball let a boy make crafts or do something with their friends

      Tbh if some girls like playing football and getting dirty then why would they be looking for something to do on here. They already have something to do so don’t think this is sexist

      Girls please, why does "sexist" have to be so rampantly in your minds. Do you not see that you have been socially engineered to think this way? Wake up. Reality is not what you have been programmed to think it is. Seek the truth and you will find it.

      I smiled reading this because it reminds me of my teen years and many on this list I enjoyed. Now I'm trying to research information to target teens for my business and this gives me a great start and ideas, so thank you!!.. To those who feel like this is sexist, why not start your own blog of ideas...

      well, one, it's titled 'for teenage girls', and the author tried their best in order to create a comprehensive list. I would say some of these are more activities to try than hobbies (I'm not quite sure you can turn making cake pops or learning to braid into a full-fledged hobby) but I think this list is a good start to a road to choosing a hobby. Or even just an activity to do when bored. thx for this

      If this is too sexist for all of you then just go to a different website. Instead of yelling at the author, I'd like to thank them for the time they spent to create this post, it helped me a lot!

      The paragraph is really based on girls but that's all this site is about I just wish people would stop categorizing everything and anything in the world these days. I swear its so stupid how you all cant appreciate the hard work this lady or team of people has put into this site. Thank you guys for showing me what it means to journey into some more hobbies. I've loved every one of them.

      Of course it is sexist - the title is hobbies for girls - it is not intended to represent every girl's interests - but those activities that girls more commonly find interest in and can attract high volume web traffic...

      I find this a bit sexist. Not only is it saying that girls can’t get their hands dirty but they would rather spend their time on snap chat. Now maybe I’m wrong, because I had difficulty getting through the article but girl power doesn’t have to be about social media and YouTube or whatever

      I feel like this helped but I still don't know what to do it has to be something different and not crafty. And honestly I wish I could do photography but cameras are so expensive, I already sketch and stuff so I want to do something different that is not connected to school. Any suggestions?

      The intro though, really cheesy and sexist.

      Hi Kara!

      Those are great hobbies! I sort of agree, Candy Crush might not be a typical 'hobby' suggestion, but the way I see it, a hobby is something you do to unwind and destress during your free time. That's why I included it. I would totally suggest a craft over it though! My pick would be needle felting!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      There are some great suggestions here. I like the blogging ideas and making your own makeup or clothing line. Those are pretty awesome. I'm not sure Candy Crush really counts as a hobby, but there are a lot of fantastic suggestions here.
