4. Mean Girls Themed Quiz
Get ready to flex your Mean Girls knowledge with a quiz during your Mean Girls hen do. These facts are practically written in the Burn Book!

5. Mean Girls Inspired Cocktails
Now, these aren’t like regular cocktails, these are cool cocktails, and no Mean Girls inspired hen party would be complete without some sassy, pink tipples. Sure, you could head to a bar for cocktails or you could mix up your very own themed drinks at home with the girls. Get ready to go all out and have some fun naming your cocktails, taking inspiration from some of the movie’s best quotes and references. Think along the lines of ‘Fetch Fizz’, or ‘A Little Bit Dramatic’, a nod to that top worn by the queen bee herself, Regina George. Alternatively, why not enjoy a play on words for your drink such as ‘You Can’t Sip With Us!’ Whatever you name them, just remember, happy hour is from four to six. Oh, God Love ya.
6. Mean Girls Drinking Game
If you fancy getting tipsy while watching your favourite movie, why not try out the Mean Girls drinking game? It’s “grool” and all you need to do is make rules on when to drink during the movie. For example, take a drink when: Anyone says Plastics. Someone mispronounces Cady’s name. When there’s narration. When someone mentions Africa. When someone says Regina George’s full name. When there’s a three way phone call. When Gretchen spills a secret. When someone crosses off a task on Janis’s board. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Just remember to drink responsibly. You don’t want to repeat Cady’s infamous word vomit or worse!
7. Cinema Trip
Get your popcorn ready because on 17th January 2024, cinemas in the UK are turning into a Mean Girls musical haven for the ultimate hen party treat! It’s not just a movie screening; it’s a Plastics-packed premiere. Don your pink clothing and get yourselves down to your local cinema to watch the new Mean Girls movie. From cool dance numbers to Regina’s iconic one-liners, it’s bound to be iconic. So, ditch the Kalteen bars, embrace the Plastics’ charm and enjoy every minute of your Mean Girls movie night!
8. Mean Girls Fancy Dress
Who can resist a bit of early 00s fashion? Get ready to strut your stuff in Plastics-approved glamour because, at a Mean Girls hen party, dressing up is as essential as wearing pink on a Wednesday! Don your fanciest threads and channel your inner Regina, Cady, Gretchen or Karen, or even the legendary Mrs George! As Cady Heron would say, the limit does not exist! Whatever you’re planning to do on your Mean Girls hen do, dressing up will make things fun from the get-go. Break out the tiaras, feather boas and pink clothing and accessories so you’re, like, really pretty!
