Taking that much-needed vacation with the girls is the ideal time to play some girlie games, now that the guys aren't around. Girls-only weekends are just what you need now and then to release your inner female and catch up on everything girlie. In preparation of your weekend away, plan some games that all of you will enjoy.
Girlie Scavenger Hunt
Plan a girlie scavenger hunt that requires small teams of the gals to work together and find the items on a scavenger hunt list. Each team gets a disposable camera, and must use the camera to capture snapshots of the places they go on the hunt. Ideas for a girlie scavenger hunt include "Find a sweater on sale," "Get a picture with a cute guy" and "Score a guy's business card." The teams compete against one another to see which one wins by crossing off the items on their list first.
Truth or Dare
Truth or dare is a classic girlie game to play with your closest friends. On your girlie weekend, take this game on the road to a bar -- if you are over 21 years old -- so that your "dares" can be more creative and entertaining. The game truth or dare challenges players to confess to a truth, or perform a dare in order to escape the confession. Interesting dares for a bar atmospheres include "Ask a guy to buy you a drink," "Run around the bar mooing like a cow" and "Draw a mustache on your face with washable marker."
Cooking Game Challenge
If you and your gal pals are staying somewhere over the weekend that has a kitchen, you can use the kitchen for your next game inspiration. Grab a cookbook and flip through it to randomly land on a recipe. The cooking game is a challenge between two teams of girls to make that recipe the best. Take a journey to the store and buy enough ingredients for both teams to put the meal together. Make sure you also have enough cooking or baking utensils in the kitchen for both teams. Complete the cooking challenge and then taste each others' dish to see whose came out the best.
Blind Makeup Game
An ultimate girlie game to play during a girls-only weekend is the blind makeup game. The blind makeup game is where one girl is blindfolded and has to put makeup on another girl who sits in front of her. The blindfolded girls must use their best abilities to try to get the makeup on the other person the "best." The makeup artist who does the best job wins the game, and then the girls switch turns, so that each girl gets the chance to be the blindfolded makeup artist.
