Hey, I would suggest that you just meet on a regular basis and work on problems from the American Maths Competitions (AMC, AIME, USAMO) and try to work together to improve your problem solving skills. Give out problems at the end of each meet up to work on in between and discuss solutions at the next one. Try and find simpler and more elegant solutions. I would also suggest gaining a reference group copy of 'The Art and Craft of Problem Solving' because I got it a while ago and it is brilliant in my opinion.

You could also start playing logic games like the wff n' proof games or rubik's cube...

Pick topics out of the Math 1001 book by Elwes or some similar book and explore them or have someone research and run a discussion on them.

or explore speed math like the Trachtenberg system:

or use the Processing IDE to create some cool geometrical objects:
