Go to your local thrift store, make sure you have each other’s sizes, and go pick out an outfit for one another! You can go in a silly direction or a sincere one, but in either case, you’ll both have your changing room montage scene that we all loved in those coming-of-age teen girl movies.
  • Craft night: Pull out all the crafting supplies you have or take a trip to the dollar tree; there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned crafting night with your friends! Have a fun playlist in the background, place out some snacks, and let the creativity flow!
  • Cafe hopping: You’ve heard of bar hopping; now get ready for cafe hopping. Bring a bag full of simple activities (Ex: Books, word searches, small puzzles, tabletop games, deck of cards), grab your bestie, and take the day to go on a local coffee shop hop!
