There are so many fun things to do over FaceTime with friends. This year, more and more people are connecting to loved ones over the Internet, but looking for ways to add to their conversations. Here are ten unique ideas to bring on the laughs and the memories.
What can you do with your friends on FaceTime? The ideas are limitless. It started out as a means to visually have a hands-free conversation, but has since turned into so much more.
Learn TikTok Dances Together
Tik Tok has pretty much taken over the globe and Tik Tok dances are all the rage. Why not consider learning a few with your bestie over Face Time as a way to pass time?
You and your virtual partner will have plenty of time to perfect your moves together and make it a learning experience you will never forget. Whether you train your friend or she helps you with some steps you struggle with, this fun activity is guaranteed to bring on the laughs.

What about a virtual bake off? Grab one of your creative culinary girlfriends and see what you two can come up with together. FaceTime calls ensure that every cupcake design you create will be one for the books!
Why not consider learning a new baking technique as a team? Mess up? Hey – that’s part of the fun! Enjoy the process while laughing together as you explore baking cakes, muffins, and cookies.
Organize Your Bedroom
Your bedroom needs help. Your friend’s bedroom is in shambles. Why not both clean up at the same time? Taking the time to organize a bedroom requires effort, but when you are talking to a friend, it will pass a bit quicker.
Combat this tedious task by multitasking! Keep things entertaining and connect with your friends over the Internet while doing the same exact things in your respective houses.
In fact, consider offering each other advice about the rearrangement of furniture, donation piles, decluttering tips, and more. Turn a boring task into a more tolerable one. Maybe you can even set up garage sales on the same day!
Watch the Same Movie
Missing movie night with friends? Then you are in luck because this year several companies came out with ways for friends to digitally connect and watch the same flicks together online.
My daughter does this ALL THE TIME with her girlfriends. I hear her in her room. They always use Netflix to do it, but I know other streaming devices have also gotten into the game.
You could simply pick your favorite show on Demand and then connect with your friends on FaceTime! Hit play at the same exact time and you will be good to go. Discuss, criticize, and even predict the ending while pretending you are at the theatre together.
There are plenty of games you can play together online with friends. I am a true gamer at heart and spend quite a bit of time doing this myself. But if you want to play a board game with friends online, a great place to start is with Trivial Pursuit.
Turn your FaceTime on, grab a few buddies, and decide who will be the host. Then, the designated host can move everyone’s pieces for them. This way, the host is in complete control of the game making it easier for everyone.
You can take this concept and use it with almost every board game.
We live in a time and age where most board games that we love have been transformed into online apps. Besides the classics, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of new titles that you can select to try out with your friends today.
Consider titles like Boggle, Pictionary, Hangman, and many more. Ask your friends for some of their favorite suggestions or kick things off with a classic game of charades to warm your team up!
Either way, the point is – get your friends together for a great time. If you need some recommendations, here are Dozens Of Apps To Play With Friends.
Would You Rather Question?
We love asking Would You Rather Questions!! I have a free printable with over 100 questions to get you started that is ready to download on my site. Please enjoy!
Ask these funny, silly, personal questions and really get to know your friends on a much deeper level. Use your imagination! Start with the list I provided above and then just think of the most random things and see where your imagination takes you.
For example, you can ask, would you rather live in a house made of ice cream or a house made of chocolate?
Truth and Dare Questions
I feel like this game is as old as the sands of time! I played this game when I was in school. My mother played this game when she was in school and now, my daughter is playing it with her friends. Truth or Dare questions are here to stay!
Consider playing Truth or Dare virtually when you can’t meet up with your friends in real life. Connect with your friends via FaceTime and ask your friends if they want to be honest or if they want to do something risky!
Plan A Fake Vacation
My family often plans fake vacations together and it is so much fun to do. Consider planning an all-expenses-paid trip to wherever you want with your bestie and do it together while chatting virtually online.
This activity will offer guaranteed laughs! And who knows?! Maybe a few years down the line… you two will actually make it there? Out of all the things to do over FaceTime with friends, this one is my favorite.
Window shopping is actually quite therapeutic. I like to just look around at some of my favorite stores and see what I would buy if I had all the money in the world. I redo my living room and my bedroom. I pick out new patio furniture and maybe even get a new car every now and then… what?
Well, why not grab a few of your friends and have a virtual shopping date together? Share your screens and show off your favorite finds!
