101 Fun Hobbies for Teenage Girls

  • Author:
  • Updated date:

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)!

Let the creativity flow with a hobby that'll give the right side of your brain a workout!

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!

Amazing post Thankyou!

Jessie112 on April 25, 2020:

I thought this website really helped!!! Thank you!!

To the people who don't like this article: If you don't like it just go to another website! Its that simple, the author worked super hard to write this, and now you are giving her rude comments...picture yourself in her situation, imagine reading the comments you see after you spent a long time writing something to help other people out!!! Just think of that, sometimes your opinion is not needed.

Clarisse on April 05, 2020:

I am often bored at home so this will help me!

destiny on March 23, 2020:

i have no idea on what to spend my time doing and my is coplaining that im always at home but i cant drive so what an i supposed to do

I don't care what anyone else says. This is very wrong and sexist.

Who says that I don't want to learn basketball or golf?

This is coming from a teenage girl. Please change the introduction so it is a little less stereotypical.

Jenny Weasley on March 09, 2020:

I was bored I had Just been kicked out of Hogwarts and I was so bored but this helped me so much even though you left out, play quitch

Rty on February 03, 2020:

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.

Quokka on January 31, 2020:

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!

Eli on January 13, 2020:

wow. thanks. i feel awkward. im not in Any way like this. im a they them.

Eloise on January 05, 2020:

Looking at this list has helped me a lot,they’re good ideas but some of them are not hobbies they’re just things to do

Lily on November 07, 2019:

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

ila on September 01, 2019:

this made me miss when i used to do crafts all the time. brb gonna go craft now

Amy on September 01, 2019:

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

Yahweh loves you. on August 20, 2019:

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.

gsdf on July 22, 2019:

this article is sexist

Crystal on April 14, 2019:

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...

ella on April 11, 2019:

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

Loobyloutwo on April 07, 2019:


Gavin on March 20, 2019:

This was very helpful.

Elizabeth on March 05, 2019:

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!

Gurl Power on February 23, 2019:

I was looking for hobbies and saw this. It's all girly stuff. Who says girls can't play football with the boys? It's totally sexist!

a_girl on January 20, 2019:

this is stupid and sexist

1999_ Girl on January 11, 2019:

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.

googley girl on December 15, 2018:

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...

Astrid on November 24, 2018:

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

Ezile Stefani on October 25, 2018:

how can u get to know a babysitting

Maria on August 25, 2018:

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.

Harry on August 14, 2018:

Rly useful but so bluntly sexist especially the introduction paragraph it feels like we were put back 60yrs

M on July 30, 2018:

I found some really good ideas but that first paragraph was annoyingly sexist

Rihanna on June 10, 2018:

Someone can introduce some cool sites

Aletia on May 06, 2018:

Wow thanks !!! Very cool , exiting hobbies

Good bye bored !

Person on March 10, 2018:

The first paragraph is by far very sexist and stereotypical

Jamie on February 09, 2018:

I love your ideas Kara I’m always bored out my mind and I don’t have a cell but I love crafts and exercise. Ty for those ideas and more.

Brecken on December 14, 2017:

I love to crochet and you are totally right it is the best thing to do when binge watching netflix. I have been looking for new hobbies after I had to quit all sports due to injury

Max on November 19, 2017:

The friend ones sounded fun, if only I had friends to do them with! ^~^

Tatiana (author) from Florida on August 14, 2017:

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!


Kara Skinner from Maine on August 10, 2017:

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.

RS on July 01, 2017:

So helpful thanks!!!!!

Ciera on May 23, 2017:

This knows me so well!

Kowsalya Sanko on April 09, 2017:


Tatiana (author) from Florida on June 25, 2016:

Thanks Chatty! :-) I spend a lot of time making images and trying to make things as pretty as possible. I'm glad you like it :-)

Cindy from United States on June 24, 2016:

This hub is honestly so pretty. Maybe it's the pink. I love these suggestions. Shopping is definitely a hobby to indulge.
