Things to do with friends. Beautiful friends. Beautiful and fun things to do with friends, to live life out loud and on purpose, to write on the wall of life. How much richer friends and these experiences make our lives.  A tribe. A posse. A circle. Whatever you call your group of friends, they are sometimes the core of who we are. They know our deepest thoughts, fears, and what drives us. They know what what makes us laugh til we cry. They are our soul sisters. Our crazy, beautiful friends.

Whether you have known your friends since you were young or they are brand new, it is the memories we make that bond us. It’s doing life together and being committed to the friendship that cements us. A great way to do that is to find epic things to do with friends. Fun things. Significant things. Different things.  Memory-making things to do with friends. This is where life is lived.

And if all of your friends do not know each other, take this opportunity to do things with your friends, all of your friends, as a group. What an amazing tribe you will build.

Fun Things to Do with Friends

  1. Design a piece of jewelry as a group and make one for everyone together. One person starts it, and then the next person contributes, and then passes it to the next person. Variations: Design it together as a group and agree upon the design or each person decides their own thing to contribute to it. A necklace or bracelet could be done with charms, each person adding a charm, or each person could choose their own charm.
  2. Start a blog with your own domain name and hosting. If money is an issue, start a free one on blogger or wordpress.
