Fun Activities to do with your Friends
Maggie Walker

Born and raised in West Lafayette, Indiana has lead to plenty of days where my friends and I do not know what we want to do. The semi-small town only has a certain extent of things to do. Most of the times, the debate for what to do ends with us driving around blaring our music, not a bad option. Here, I will share a couple different ideas of what to do when you need some help finding ideas.

Have a DIY Day

Something I always enjoy is being able to feel crafty. My friends and I frequently have painting nights, which is one way to go about this. Some others include: tie-dying, bracelet making, making photo collages, and so many more. My go-to to find ideas is typically Pinterest. There are endless ideas on there!

Play a Sport

One sport that my friends and I started playing some more is volleyball. It is something to keep us active and a way to have a good laugh. We also play basketball a lot, which can be more competitive than volleyball, but still a lot of fun.

Play Card Games

This can also be board games, either idea can lead to some fun times. My friends and I play Sorry almost anytime we are bored, it gets very competitive and leads to lots of laughter and fun memories.

Cook Something

Something that I love to do is try and learn new recipes. It can be time consuming, but if you are trying to find something to do and a way to spend time, I recommend it. Plus, it could be a great way to impress people later, so it is basically a win-win.

Photoshoot

I wrote an article earlier about five different photoshoots to do in quarantine. Those are a few different ideas for if you do not want to leave the house. Going outside and setting up a photoshoot can be just as easy. Just find an area you think is pretty, and snap some pictures.

Picnics

I think getting a couple friends together and finding a place you can sit and eat can be a great time. Not to mention, you can bring other things along to do while in the area, such as a volleyball or something like that to pass back and forth.

Go Thrift Shopping

Finding a thrift store is easy, finding cute clothes in a thrift store may be a different situation if you are like me. I never find cute things in thrift stores. So, instead of trying to find cute clothes, I more look for clothes that I can revamp and make cuter. I have gotten Purdue t-shirts and cut or dyed them differently to make them unique and more interesting.

Build a Fort

I think this one can be a lot of fun, as long as you have the space for it. Grab a bunch of blankets, pillows, and whatever else you may need, and start building! Plus, once it is built, you can have a movie marathon and just relax for the rest of the day.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
