Group activities can run dry when you’re an adult. You’ve seemingly done everything already, from day drinking to partying through the night, to hiring out a yacht and going swimming with various sea creatures – they’ve all been ticked off the bucket list!
And that’s why you’re here: you’re looking for something new to do on a regular basis that’ll keep you and your friends entertained. You want to try fun things where people can have a laugh, without needing to go too wild; you’re all busy adults after all! So with that in mind, here are some ideas that might just work out.
Set Up a Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts aren’t just for kids. You can have a lot of fun with them as adults too. Get someone to set one up, make sure there’s a good prize waiting at the end, and then split into equal groups.
Take the day working through the puzzles and race towards the big finish – it’s a lot of fun, especially during the summer when you can get drinks and sweet snacks as you go! And don’t just keep it to a house or your neighborhood, split up a few of the stages throughout your nearest town as well.
Try Tabletop Gaming
Do you like playing video games? Maybe you’ve had a few Switch nights with your friends already? Well now it’s time to try tabletop gaming and see how you like that. If you’re not sure where to start, use tools like a name generator to help you come up with a character and then spend your first session creating them as a group.
Remember, activities like these are good for having a lot of fun without needing to put in much effort. You just need an imagination and the ability to laugh at yourself for the silly decisions you might make during the game!
Host a Weekly Cookout
A weekly cookout is easy to arrange (assuming you live close enough to a couple friends) as you just need a recipe and the ingredients to make it happen. What could be simpler? Rotate the hosts week by week, host the cookouts on different nights if need be, and then just get dressed up to have dinner at a friend’s house.
And even though it’s known as a ‘cookout’, you can cook up a storm indoors if the weather isn’t right outside. This way you can keep the tradition going all throughout the year, and have a good catchup with each other as you go.
Go to the Theater Once a Month
The theater can get pretty expensive, so make sure this is only something you do once a month or so. But otherwise, if you have a regular theater night out, you can get involved with the art and culture of your local area. If your friends already enjoy musicals and plays, this will be perfect!
Group activities sometimes need thinking about. Use ideas like these as some inspiration!
