Fun Things to Do With Friends When You Get Bored


No matter how pleasant your friends may be when you come together, you may experience moments when you get bored and can't find anything to do. The usual activities become mundane, and just hanging out talking can get old. Instead, look for entertaining, new activities for you and your friends, such as exploring your city and creating amusing photographic memories.

Amusing Photos

  • Have a good time making memories that will last forever. Take turns capturing photos of each other using a digital camera. Incorporate some lively outfits in your photo shoot---use props and various entertaining accessories. Play upbeat music while taking your photos, to help set the right atmosphere. Once your photo shoot is done, upload the pictures to your computer and edit them with photo-editing software. Add witty captions to the pictures and use any special effect features that come with your editing software. Print out the pictures and create a scrapbook.

Tourist for a Day

  • Your area is probably packed with attractions and adventures that you have overlooked. Take advantage of the tourist attractions in your town by picking a few in your area that you and your friends have not visited. These attractions could include landmarks, museums, tours and sporting events. Act like a tourist for the day, and take plenty of pictures with your friends.

Take a Class Together

  • Learn something new with your friends by signing up for classes. Take a few dance classes together---learn to salsa, break dance or belly dance. Or, sign up for a kickboxing or karate class together. These types of classes and many more can be found offered at your local community center, for a nominal fee.

Play Games

  • Whether you create your own games or take advantage of the ones you have in your home, games with your friends can almost guarantee a lively time. Have a water balloon or water gun fight if you're bored on a hot summer day. Play laser tag in the park to get your adrenaline going. If you're stuck indoors, try charades, a word guessing game, to exercise your creative sides. This game allows players to show their acting skills by acting out a word or phrase for their teammates to guess.
