Out the Box Entertainment Ideas

If you’re looking for some fun and rather unique ways to keep yourself, your friends and family amused, give these a try!

Dress Up Movie Nights

A fun twist on a conventional theme, host a movie night but ask everyone to come dressed up as their favourite character. You can award prizes for the best and worst dressed and can run a competition to see who will guess what everyone’s character will be or is.

Build a Photo Booth

Photo booths have been a huge hit to everything from weddings to corporate events, and building one at home is simple. Gather some friends, grab some pops and have fun shooting crazy poses.

Set Up a Scavenger Hunt

You can do this at home, or even out in the city or a park. You can go for the Amazing Race style set up and have contestants complete tasks along the way, or you can go for the good old-fashioned treasure hunt that sees competitors gather clues that lead them to the next spot on the map.

Flash Mob

Gather all your friends and hit a park, mall or transport hub with a sound system and a lot of enthusiasm. Dance to 1 song then pack up and leave! Make it a challenge to see how many people you don’t know you can get involved at each stop.

Create Your Own Casino

If you love casino games why not turn your lounge into a poker den for the night or play some real money blackjack? Poker or blackjack nights can be loads of fun, and as long as you have 1 or 2 players who know what’s what, you’re guaranteed to have a good time.

Go to a Petting Zoo

You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy playing with fluffy bunnies and piglets! Find a petting zoo in your area and spend some time with the animals. If a petting zoo isn’t quite your idea of fun, go to the aquarium or zoo instead.

Make Your Own Documentary

If you love the beach or heading out to the forest, make your own documentary of your day. You can opt for the nature style doccie, or you could even draw inspiration from The Blair Witch project or similar and do something crazy!

Go Camping At Home

You can turn your garden into a campsite quite easily; plus, you’ll have the advantage of having flush toilets nearby. Build a fire, grill your dinner and do everything you’d do while camping- at home!

Book a Cooking Class

Regardless of whether you’re not yet a master Chef, your culinary skills are not up to scratch, or you think you’re the next Gordon Ramsay, everyone needs a bit of help in the kitchen. Book yourself a cooking class and learn how to make basic dishes, r go for something more advanced. Cooking skills are always worthwhile investing in, and you’ll get to eat the fruits of your labour!
