Fun Projects and Things To Do for Couples

Getting out of the house! (all rights reserved)
We seem to have fallen into some generic cookie cutter society that thinks that quality time with your beau means dinner, a movie, or how much money you can spend on one another. While I think it's perfectly fine to occasionally give gifts, I firmly believe that it shouldn't be a measure of affection. 

So, keeping that in mind, I've come up with a few ideas on how to spend time with your honey-bunny that's a little outside of the box and doesn't break the bank. 

Here's where I insert the warning that I'm quite an oddball so some of these suggestions will 100000% be goofy. You're welcome in advance. Have fun and play. Adulting doesn't have to be dull. 

Let's all tease my husband about his scratched lenses. 😂 (all rights reserved)

Things To Do With Your Shnookums:

  • Start a podcast! - My husband and I are both participants in separate podcasts and are beginning an adventure on making one that's just the two of us reviewing all the movies and shows we watch. We watch at least one movie each night after the kiddo sleeps to help us wind down, so it is such a easy project for us. 
  • Vlog - Similar to podcasting, but instead of just recording your voice, grab your smartphone and start making videos together on topics you usually talk about off camera. Maybe a his and her opinion or the like. 
  • DIY - If both you and your boo-thang like to be more hands on (outside of the bedroom, come on guys) then give this a go. Maybe hunt for thrift store finds to flip and sell on the side! 
  • Superhero Day - Get silly with it and use a throw blanket as a cape, get some sticks from outside to use as swords, and battle it out. Good vs evil. Hangry vs fed. Whatever
  • Cook - Speaking of Hangry, cook a meal together to keep the peace. Try cooking a different style each time. Think Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in Ghost in the kitchen one day and the next day speak only in Russian accents or something. Get creative. 
  • Board Games - There are a few games that I like that are simple and easily played with two players. Exploding Kittens, PooTalk Flirt DareDare DuelSplendorAzulTicket to RideConspiracy TheoryEscape Room in a Box. There's so many more, but that's a good start. 
  • Singing Contest - No experience required! See who can sing the worst to the other and mad lib it up while you're at it.
  • Park - Hit up a local park and have a day out. Pack a picnic basket or pick up food on the way. Cloud-gaze, climb a tree, follow a trail, bike, hike, relax and chat about your favorite book, have a foot-race, or put on a silly play for others to see and question your sanity over. 
  • Teach - We often tell each other what we're passionate about, but how often do we sit someone down and try to teach them what we love? Take turns giving each other lessons. Teach art, wood working, paper crafts, how to properly load the dishwasher. You get me here, right? 
  • Goofy Selfies - Take pictures together and alternate who gets to pick the filter (or go without a filter) and see who can make the funniest faces. Have your friends judge the winner.

Being a mature person doesn't mean you can't have silly, fun filled moments. Having fun doesn't have to be a grand event either. Just find something that makes you smile or happy and share it with each other. Those will be the moments you'll look back on fondly. So make tons of them.
