10 Fun Indoor Activities to do with Your BFFs

February 21, 2019

Hanging out with friends can be difficult as you get older. And during winter months, there's not much out there for you to do together. Besides drinking at a bar and eating out, there're still fun things to do indoor with your bffs. Today, I'm sharing some of the activities that my friends and I love doing together to get by the dreadful weather.


Host a Cheese or a Charcuterie Party (with Sangria, of course)

10 Fun Indoor Activities to do with Your BFFs in Winter - Host a Cheese or Charcuterie Party

Cheese parties are the best parties! We love to explore different types of cheese and bring over our favourites for everyone to enjoy. Serve them on a cheeseboard with crackers and fruits as you please. For a fancier take, try making a cheese fondue with white wine and baguette pieces. The warm and gooey cheese is perfect for colder days. And, you can't call it a party without having any drinks! We love making our own sangria. Simply combine sliced oranges, mangoes, strawberries, berries, ginger ale, and a bottle of red (or white) into a beverage dispenser. And let them sit for at least an hour before serving.

Not a fan of cheese? You could do the same with a Charcuterie platter. For colder months, we also like to make mulled wine.

Get Together for an Afternoon Tea Potluck

Potlucks are fun. But afternoon tea potlucks are even better! Everyone could bring their homemade baked goods or bake something together at a person's house. Not a baker? Just bring over pastries from your favourite bakery or patisserie! You could also take this idea one step further and decorate the space like Breakfast at Tiffany's or Alice in Wonderland tea party.

Visit an Instagram-Worthy Museum or Exhibit

It's all about the 'gram these days. Pop-up exhibits and museums set up for the 'gram are all the hype. I had a blast taking pictures and boomerangs everywhere with my friends when we visited The Happy Place. We had a fun-filled afternoon with tons of pictures and memories to laugh about. Check your city to see if there're similar exhibits set up near you.

Get Pampered at a Nail Salon or Spa

Painting nails are therapeutic. So, why not enjoy a relaxing time with your girlfriends at a spa or at a nail salon together. You get to catch up and chit chat while getting pampered at the same time. Just make sure the venue is big enough to accommodate your group. The last thing you want is to have everyone cramped inside a tiny space for an hour. Check out 13 Fabulous Nail Salons in Toronto to go with Your BFF and 10 Best Spas in Toronto.

Set Up a DIY Workshop at Home

10 Fun Indoor Activities to do with Your BFFs in Winter - DIY Candle Making

You could host a DIY workshop at home and have your girlfriends come over! We love making crafts for ourselves and our loved ones. So, we'd get together at someone's house, find tutorials online, gather materials and make something together. We've made things like hand scrubs, candles and lip balms using all natural ingredients! Check out some DIY inspirations here.

Make Your Own Paint Night

Doing your own paint night at home with your friends is a lot easier than you think. You just need to have a few paint brushes, bottles of acrylic paints, plastic cups, disposable trays and blank canvases. All of these can be purchased from the dollar store! You and your friends could agree on an image to see who replicates best or everyone could paint something they like. Either way, it's bound to be a blast. Pour some drinks, blast some musics and paint away!

Sing Your Lungs Out at Karaoke

Karaoke at a local bar can be intimidating. That's why my friends and I love renting a private room all to ourselves. You could book a room at night with a minimum spend. Or you could take advantage of the Happy Hour special rate that often includes snacks and non-alcoholic drinks in the afternoon. Check out my go-to places like Ten23 or Take One Karaoke that offers happy hour rate. Or check out 12 Best Places to Go for Karaoke in Toronto.

Escape a Themed Room

If you and your friends are into solving puzzles and finding clues, then you'd enjoy escaping a room together. Escape rooms are extremely popular these days. Brilliant and thought-provoking themes make escaping that much more interesting and exciting. In case you're unfamiliar with escape rooms, these are rooms set up with a back story and puzzles for you to solve. Each puzzle will either unlock another puzzle or lead you to another clue and ultimately escaping the room. It's a great way to build teamwork and improve communications. Some escape room places even offer board games and bubble teas as well. Check out one of my favourites, Omescape or Top 10 Room Escape Games in Toronto.

Become Ninja Warriors at an Indoor Obstacle Course

If you're the active type and prefer to get your body moving in winter time, then paying a visit to an indoor obstacle course would definitely get your adrenaline going. We visited the 30,000 square feet Pursuit OCR and boy, did we feel like kids again! The place features a huge ball bit, vertical wall, monkey bars, techno lighting and a tricycle race track. It's a super fun place to go with your friends while building muscles together. If you can't find an obstacle course in your city, you could visit your local gym or community centre for classes to do together too. 

Put On Your PJs and Binge Watch an Entire Rom Com Series

10 Fun Indoor Activities to do with Your BFFs in Winter - Slumber Party

Slumber party was my favourite thing to do with my friends from secondary school. And it often includes lots of snacks, drinks and some kind of Rom Com series. You could show off your onesies or pyjamas and kick back for a night in. It's fun to laugh and get angry together as the plot builds up and scream together when your man crush makes a cameo.


What's your favourite thing to do indoor with your bffs?
