Fun ideas that will help you plan a memorable weekend with your friends – CONAN Daily
Weekends can strengthen friendships. Instead of sitting and watching TV or browsing social media alone in your apartment, why not spend some quality time with the people who love being around you?
There’s nothing wrong with spending time alone on the weekends. You’ve worked or studied hard for five straight days and you deserve some rest instead of wasting your time and money on booze.
But whenever you have the opportunity to go out and have fun with your friends, take it. Don’t do it just to have new photos to upload to social networks, but to show your friends that they mean a lot to you. Here are some fun ideas that will help you plan a memorable weekend with your friends:
Have a freeze blaster battle.
A gel blaster battle is an exciting way to get physical. All you need are gel guns and guns that shoot soft gel balls. You can have your battle indoors or outdoors.
If you plan to have it outdoors, be sure to choose a safe location away from people and property. To plan your gel blaster fight, start by setting the rules. Will it be a free-for-all or a team competition? How many hits can each person take before going out? Once you’ve decided on the rules, set up the battlefield. You can use furniture, walls and other objects as cover.
If you play indoors, be careful not to break any fragile objects. When everyone is ready, start the fight. Remember safety measures such as not aiming at someone’s face and not shooting too close to people. After the battle, be sure to clean all the gel balls.
Have a picnic.
If you and your friends are too tired to exercise on the weekend, a picnic in the park is a great alternative. It’s a great activity for any group of friends, whatever their interests. Choose a location that suits each member of the group. Choosing your food and drink is a test of how well you know your friends. Is anyone allergic to anything? Are there foods and beverages that some of you are not allowed to consume for health reasons? What are your friends’ favorite dishes?
If you want your picnic to be even more special, consider making it a themed picnic. For example, you could organize a picnic at the cinema where you will watch your favorite movies outside. If you want to combine a picnic with physical activity, have a picnic on the beach and play beach games like Frisbee or volleyball.
No matter what kind of picnic you have, make a list of essential items to make sure you don’t miss one. These include a picnic blanket, plates, cups, utensils and napkins. If you plan to do activities during your picnic, don’t forget to bring the equipment you will need for these as well.
If you and your friends are looking for a fun and active weekend, hiking is the perfect idea. You can explore nature, exercise and spend quality time together. There are plenty of places to choose from, whether you want a short hike or a full day adventure. To make your hike enjoyable, choose a location approved by each member of the group. Pick a location that’s not too far from your home and has trails suited to your group’s fitness level. If you are bringing young children or older adults with you, look for trails with gentle inclines and plenty of places to rest along the way.
Once you’ve found the perfect spot, it’s time to start packing. Hiking shoes, sunscreen, hats, snacks, water and a first aid kit are essential. You should also pack layers of clothing in case the weather changes while you’re on the trail. Don’t forget your camera to capture all the memories. Before you go hiking, always tell someone else where you’re going and when you expect to be back, so if something happens while you’re away, someone knows where to look for you.
Visit a nearby town.
You and your friends can travel without having to move. You can explore the nearby town, go to different places and discover new things. Make sure everyone in the group is interested in visiting the city you’ve selected. There are many places to visit, so you should make a list of places you want to see. Make a flexible to-do list. You must have a backup plan when it rains.
When planning your trip, figure out how you get to town. The trip itself should be fun. It should give you and your friends a chance to bond. The accommodation must allow you the same thing. You can book a hotel room or you can find a friend who lives in town and stay with them.
Whatever your plans for the weekend, spending time with your friends is always a good idea. Whether you’re having freeze blaster battles or exploring a nearby town, you’re sure to have fun. Remember to pack everything you need and do safety first. Enjoy.
