Hello! Planning on fun activities to do with friends besides making funny jokes and talking? This article is for you as I’ll be putting you through a list of fun activities to do with friends, whether you’re broke, trying to save money, or just wanting to take a break from life stress.

Hang out in a relaxing manner with friends you love the most, add excitement and fun to that friendship as you follow this bucket list.

Amazing Activities to Do With Friends

1. Plan a Picnic Outing/date

Having good friends around us is always worthwhile and when it comes to fun activities with friends – go to a park. This allows you to relax and free your mind off about daily hustles and bustles, life in general, and sometimes, after a heartbreak. Yeah, I know it happens.

There are a lot of things to do at the park, from hanging out to watching people, carousel, Ferris wheel to enjoying a snack or a meal.

Cook, arrange your favourite snacks with friends and have a blast. And above all, you get to talk and be in touch with each other’s life.

2. Attend A Concert Together

This is on my to-do list. This is another fun way to chill with friends but this comes with interesting baggage – screaming and shouting at the top of your voices. Are you ready?

Look out for concerts of your favourite artiste, musician, get the tickets and be in your best outfit for that turn-up.

Go crazy and wild with your friends.

3. Have a Movie Marathon Together

This one is mostly done among ourselves without us realizing but make this more interesting by adding snacks and popcorn to your sides.

Try something sweet and savoury as you select a theme to watch and get excited. It could be romance, comedy, something scary, just enjoy the moment. They are to be treasured and indeed a fun activity to do with friends. 

4. Host a Dinner Party for Them

This has to be appreciated and the cutest thing one can do for friends. Go all out and host a dinner party for them, cook favourite dishes and snacks and invite them over. Or you could have them come over early and cook together. This gives you the chance to get along with each other and talk about life in general.

I don’t know about you but this is indeed a fun activity to do with friends. I mean, it involves food. FOOD!

5. Go Shopping With Them

As stressful as it sounds already, trust me going shopping with friends is a fun thing to do any day and anytime. Maybe not when the sun is scorching but you get the point.

Do this with friends, go to a favourite shopping mall, try out outfits, attires, dresses even lingerie’s. This is a fun-filled experience as you get to laugh with friends and talk about life and mean of course. Oh, even women.

6. Try Karaoke

Got crazy friends? This is for you! Turn the volume up, sing in your sweet and ugly, even loud voices. Enjoy the musicals as you enjoy the moment. These are mostly a laugh-filled day and a fun activity to do with friends,

Change the music from slow theme to RnB to reggae, afro, Latino – anything.

Scream at the top of your voice and have fun!

7. Have a Game Night Together

PES? Mortal Kombat? Scrabble? Monopoly? Chess? Charades? I mean there are a lot to select from.

Ditch the same old same old boring conversation and add this to your list of fun activities to do with friends.

8. Plan a Trip to a Different Location

I remember doing this and I assure you this is the ultimate fun activity to do with friends. Travel, enjoy a car ride together, the cold breeze as it hits your face.

Travel to an entirely different location, try every fun activity there like going down the water slides, seeing the waterfall, swimming, karting, canoeing, bowling, laser tag, even paintballing, see nature at its highest peak and beauty. This is beautiful, an adventure, and worth it!

My favourite here is paintballing even though I’ve never tried it.

Paintballing is a game of elimination. (Relax, you’re not killing your friends, they will probably be laughing because you shot them at ‘where it doesn’t shine) It is a competition between friends where you hold guns to shoot each other. The gun is filled with colour, i.e. a paint.

Make this game extra fun by tagging the friend with the most paint on the clothes a loser and he/she has to pay for dinner!

9. Try Travelling for a Festival

Check out local and international news for upcoming festivals around you and have your friends agree to explore a new place together.

There are Calabar festival, Argungu fishing festival or even travel out – doesn’t matter as you’re with friends and that is a fun activity on its own.

10. Challenge Games With Friends Would Be Fun

There are a lot of fun challenges to try when having fun activities to do with friends. 

like picking up a cup using just your mouth

blinking your eyes 8-10 times in a row to 

wiggling their eyebrows or

guessing a flavour of a cookie

talking in a different accent and

drinking an entire jug of milk without throwing up.

According to research, one who drinks a jug of milk at a go must throw up. I mean, don’t you want to see your friend throwing up or struggling to pick up a cup with just their mouth?

This is one of the fun activities to do with friends as it is entertaining and hilarious.

11. Check Out a New Restaurant Together

I mean, who’s not up for that? This is an adventurous and fun activity to do with friends. On this note, you discover new and good food, a new taste, also see new people and create memories.

Conclusion 

Hey there, if you’re not certain what fun activity to do with friends, simply hang out. Sit, relax and talk at home about nothing and everything. It is fun in its way even though we don’t realize, the little moments with friends matter, they always do.

The above rule of the game is to be in touch with friends, create time for good friends and try fun activities once in a while with them when you can. I hope this list has helped you in deciding fun activities to do with friends.

Be sure to show me the fun activities you try; I’ll love to know. Call your friends now and start planning a fun activity together.
