101 Fun Hobbies for Teenage Girls

Updated on June 19, 2017

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. Girls, on the other hand, we 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 learn 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!)

      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

      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.
