Fun Things to do with Friends

Charlie S Aug 7, 2020
We all love to spend time with our friends and do enjoyable and sometimes downright crazy things. If you want to know what fun things you can do with your best friends, then this story will help you out.
Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . ."
― C. S. Lewis, The Four Loves
We make those people our friends who have some similarities with us. These similarities can be in terms of common interests, having the same way of thinking and visualizing things, having common hobbies, etc. A friend is someone we admire and respect, and turn to for help in times of need and difficulties.
Friendships can last really long if friends have complete faith in each other. A person's age and financial position are not the criteria for being buddies with him/her, but getting along well in all situations is important for the friendship to survive.
To avoid problems and misunderstandings, it is necessary to meet your friends frequently to share thoughts and experiences. Here are some ideas for fun things that you can do with your buddies according to your age group.

FOR KIDS

Watching classic cartoons likeTom and Jerry, The Road Runner Show, Looney Tunes, Popeye the Sailor Man, etc., can be great fun with buddies.
Watching Cartoons
These classics never get old, and kids will love it even more when watching in their friends' company.
Making crafts with paper, papier mâché, or any other material that can be creatively used is a great idea for kids to indulge in with their friends. This not only allows them to enjoy with their buddies, but also boosts their creativity.
Craft Activities
Kids are physically very active, and hence, they need some activities that'll keep them engaged.
Playing Games
When hanging out with their friends, kids can indulge in playground games such as hide-and-seek, tag, cops and robbers, duck-duck-goose, etc. If the weather outside is bad, kids can play indoor games like Chinese whispers, house, musical statues, etc. Hide-and-seek can also be played as an indoor game.

Go on a Field Trip

Kids can go on a field trip to the museum or park with their friends, accompanied by a chaperone. They will get to learn a lot of new things from this, while also having a fun time with their friends.

FOR TEENAGERS

Watch a Movie

You can go to the theater and watch the latest movie with your friends. You can also go for a snack afterwards. This can also turn into a full-day outing with your buddies.
Teenagers can go out with their friends to places such as museums, malls, parks, etc. There are plenty of things to do at these places that will be even more fun when your buddies are with you! You can also go bowling with your buddies.
See New Places
Games are not just meant for small kids, teenagers can play them too!
Play Games
If you are a teenager, you can play indoor games like Uno, chess, table football, Mafia, Dungeons and Dragons, etc., with your friends. You can also play outdoor games like soccer, basketball, or baseball.
 
I can see you cringe at just the thought of volunteer community service.
Volunteer Work
But, this can be a great activity to do with your friends, and also useful to the community. You can opt for spending some time with the inmates of an old-age home, volunteer at the animal shelter, go on clean-up drives in parks, or help in the homeless shelters, according to where your interest lies.

FOR YOUNG ADULTS

Party
Party
Most people get too busy with college and/or work by the age of 25, and cannot find enough time to hang out with their best friends. The best thing to do in such a situation is to go to the nightclub and party hard on a weekend. This time spent with your friends will rejuvenate you, making you eagerly await the next time you wish to spend time with them.
Go on a Vacation
You can plan a fun vacation with your friends if you are a young adult and have the resources for doing so. You can go to places where you will be able to relax and spend time with your buddies, like on the beach, or you can go to places such as Las Vegas or Atlantic City where you can just have some crazy fun.
You can have a potluck dinner party with your buddies. This way, you can enjoy some great home-cooked food, have some nice wine or beer, and just relax with your best friends over some good movies that all of you like.
Dinner Party
Some retail therapy never fails to work when you want to unwind and forget about all the stress that is plaguing you. Shopping can be even more fun when done with friends, and you can also catch up on what they have been up to.

FOR MIDDLE-AGED PEOPLE

By the time you reach the age of 40-50, you have more likely than not developed a refined and sophisticated taste. To cater to this, you can spend time playing golf or just having a drink with your friends at the club.
Go to the Club
Join a class for learning something new with your friends at your local University of the Third Age.
Learn Something New
You will be surprised at how much fun you can still have in the lectures at this age. It will remind you of your youth and keep you young at heart.
If you have never tried yoga before, this is your chance to stay fit while also bonding with your pals. Yoga is a great activity to stay healthy at any age, and doing it with friends will only just add to the fun.
Yoga
If you or any of your friends cannot walk or do much physical activity due to age, then playing cards is a great option for you to spend time together.
Play Cards
These were just a few ideas for fun things you can do with your friends, but the list is by no means exhaustive. You can come up with many more ideas to spend time with your buddies and strengthen your friendship.
