1. Bleach Painting

Grab your bestie, some black T-shirts, diluted bleach and a paintbrush—and get painting! Make cute designs on the shirts using the bleach and watch your work come to life right in front of you. 

2. Psyche

If you're looking for a night full of laughter, look no further. This game is an app on your phone that all players are required to download. Once you start, the screen displays a question about a player and each person will creatively and goofily answer it. Then everyone votes on the anonymous answers, and gains points for each vote. This game makes for a hilariously fun night—whether you're on Zoom or hanging six feet apart.

3. Candy Photoshoot

Sick of the same old photos? Revamp your insta feed with a candy photoshoot. Have each friend wear an adorbs outfit inspired by a type of candy, from Swedish Fish to M&Ms. Get your candy of choice and its corresponding color bedsheet for the background and get posing!

4. Tie-Dye Scrunchies

Nothing brings a group closer together than matching, and nothing is cute than tie-dye scrunchies (after all, tie-dye *is* the trendiest print of summer 2020). You can learn how to make the scrunchies here or simply buy white scrunchies and dye them yourself. You can also use this video as inspo on how you'd like to dye your scrunchies.

5. Sunset Painting

Prepare for a peaceful and gorg evening with the girls as you take sunset watching to the next level. Get out your prettiest paints, some canvases/paper and paintbrushes and have everyone recreate the beauty before them. Make sure to post a pic of your work and tag @girlslifemag
