My Friends and I are Bored. Ideas Please!
My friends and I are bored. Here’s the deal. My best friends and I hang out every weekend. There are six of us and we are all 15. We all go to the same church and all of our parents know each other. It’s great except that they won’t let us go anywhere. We can stay up late and do pretty much what we want it just needs to be at one of our houses. So, we switch houses each weekend. We really don’t care, because our parents are pretty cool, we’re just bored. We usually just watch a movie. Ideas, please!
Hanging out with your best friends, every weekend sounds great! The being bored part, not so much. The key to ending boredom is thinking outside the box.
Let your creativity go wild! You and your friends will come up with something new and fun.
Bored no more!
Here are some ideas to get your creative vibes started.
Revamp your movie night
Give the night a theme and match your movie and snacks to it.
For sweet-cutesy movies, have ooey-gooey deserts. For an action flick, you could have spicy foods that have a “kick”.
Have a game night
Have each person bring a game. Make it into a friendly competition. You can play as individuals or split up into teams.
Everyone can come dressed as anything with one exception: no wearing normal clothes. Then give out some awards, like best costume, or funniest, weirdest, most unexpected, most creative etc.
You don’t need to be singers. Messing up and not sounding like Beyoncé makes it more fun. Don’t forget to do some duets and a group sing along.
Have everyone bring their fav candy. Use them as toppings to make dessert pizzas. For the crust, you can use pizza crust, cookie dough, rolled out cinnamon dough or anything you like.
Open mike night
Everyone takes a turn performing. You can sing a song, do a dance, tell jokes, or share a funny story.
We could keep going, but that should get you started.
Don’t put a limit on your imagination. Take any of these ideas and bump it up a notch with your own unique twist.
Have everyone write down their ideas and throw them in a hat.
At the end of each weekend, pick something new for the next weekend.
Then you have all week if you need to prepare anything.
We love doing movie-themed nights. One time we watched a movie about a robbery and we ate finger foods. Anything you could eat with your hands. Fries, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks etc. Get it? It’s called the 5 finger discount when you steal something.
hope, karaoke, and lots of love,
