1. DIY Gnome
As you know, gnomes are in.
Spend an evening making these simple no-sew DIY gnomes. You can create a whole gnome family in an hour.
These are really the cutest things; I’ll be making gnomes with my teens. Perhaps we’ll invite some of their friends over for a gnome-making party.
2. Twelve Days Of Gnomes
Get a set of twelve rustic gnome ornaments, paint them or decorate with markers.
Use them as gift tags, ornaments, or surprise a friend with 12 days of gnomes.
They would also be fun as advent calendar fillers for teens.

My oldest daughter loves to read, and she has really enjoyed the book Dust (Heirs of Neverland).
These books are on her wish list for this year:
- Shadow (Heirs of Neverland 2) by Kara Swanson
- Six of Crows (Duology) by Leigh Bardugo
- Mortal Sight by Sandra Fernandez Rhoads
There are a few more books on the list, but I’ll save those for the December Teen Fun article.
4. Turkey Trot
I didn’t know this was a thing until I looked for stuff to do around this time of year.
Joining a local Turkey Trot sounds like fun for those who love to run.
If you and your teen are not fans of long runs, go and cheer the runners.
Or grab some coffee, walk around the neighborhood or downtown and call it a Turkey Trot.
a. Yes or No
One player rapidly asks questions and the other answers, but the answer can’t be yes or no.
It’s more complicated than it sounds.
View the Yes or No game.
b. Codenames Duet
This super popular game keeps the whole family entertained. Take a look at the Codenames Duet.
If you have Harry Potter fans in the household, this HP Codenames game will delight them.
