It shouldn't come as any surprise to people in youth ministry that Christian teen girls and Christian teen boys tend to have different interests. While a majority of youth group events should involve both boys and girls, there are times when it is nice to have a "girls only" activity. Here are some ideas for those times when the girls just want to have fun:

Spa Day

Well, maybe a day at a real spa may be a little too pricey for your Christian teens, but that doesn't mean you can't create your own special day. You can put together some basic supplies like nail polish, scrubs, masks, and more to spend some time together getting "pretty." Girls love to pamper themselves, and this time together allows your youth group girls to bond with one another.

Chick Flick Night

Put together a batch of the greatest "chick flicks" and get the girls together for a night of laughter and tears. The girls will love it, but just make sure you have enough chocolate, popcorn, and Kleenex to go around.

Girls-Only Speakers

Many events involve speakers that tend to focus on male spirituality or purposefully keep gender out of the sermon. However, there are some great female examples in your church or nationally that can speak to the girls about empowering them spiritually. You can make these speakers part of a larger conference or just have one night where your girls can grow spiritually.

It's no secret that many teens like to do crafts, and the activity will allow some of your students to foster their creative side. Even if you aren't that crafty, you can involve leaders that have some craft supplies for your girls to create scrapbook pages, beaded jewelry, and more.

The mall is always a popular event location for teens. You can make the mall even more fun by creating a scavenger hunt: create a list of unique items for the girls to find throughout the mall. Whichever team takes photos of all the items in the least amount of time wins.

All-Girls Prayer Night

It is great if your youth group prays together, but sometimes girls have prayer requests that they just won't talk about in front of the boys. It can be good for your girls to get together to pray for one another or individually without any male influence.

Girls' Bible Study

Christian teens should spend some time reading and understanding their Bible, and setting up bible studies is a great way for leaders to help their students navigate the Word. A girls' Bible study can help the females in your youth group get more from the stories and lessons in the Bible.

Sports Day

Many girls in your youth group probably have an interest in athletics, but some youth groups don't allow girls to participate in sporting events with boys out of concern that the boys may play roughly. Make sure the athletes in your group feel included by creating sports teams just for the girls in your youth group. Why not have that flag football or volleyball tournament for your girls alongside your boys' tournaments?
