200 Fun Things to Do With Your Friends

“What should we do?”  You may have heard or asked this question at some point when trying to make plans with a friend. It can be challenging to try to brainstorm ideas of things to do for fun all the time. Make an effort to switch up your routine and try different ways of spending time together. There are so many activities to do if you get out of your comfort zone! Sometimes you also have to just get creative. Consider exploring the city you live in – there can be new things right in front of you that you have never seen or thought about!

There are also ways to make activities that you always do, a little more fun by changing some aspects.  You could try doing something at a different time of the day than what you are used to. For example, maybe you and your friends always go to the movies at night- try going during the day time to make it feel like a new experience! Another aspect could be changing the location of where you hang out. Maybe you and your friends usually do puzzles inside the house, but a fun change would be sitting outside!  All you need is one friend to have a good time, but the more, the merrier! Read the list below for a variety of different ways to have more fun together!
