Creative Date Idea – Play Date


(Online Dating Newsletter) Return to childhood for a day by going on a play date with your partner. For your play date you should select an activity that would typically be considered something for kids to enjoy and then go out and enjoy it yourself. In order for this date idea to work, you and your significant other have to agree before hand to completely let your guard down and not worry about what others may think of you. You have to truly think like a kid and enjoy being silly, rambunctious, and active.

Great examples of enjoyable play dates include:

» going to a video arcade
» venturing out to a park where you can swing on the swings, climb the monkey bars, twirl on the merry-go-round and play tag
» visiting a beach to make sand castles and splash in the water.

If you work up an appetite on your play date, make sure you eat the sugary, greasy foods that kids love like pizza, ice cream, and candy – you know you still like it, too!

    I love this idea! My husband is usually a very “stern” man who rarely laughs. I think this will be a great thing to try to get him to lighten up and laugh a little. I think I’ll get him to take me to the Beach next weekend for some playtime in the sand.

    yes this is such a fun idea to go in the green meadows not thinking or work and with a bag full of snacks. I would also prefer to carry some good books.

    I just love to be in the bright sunshine gazing through the tress and so much greenary. Couples will just love this idea.

    Thanks for the idea, not a whole lot of things to do around Calgary for couples. Creative ideas are needed in this city(;
    I don’t think going to the park for the swings is only for kids! I love to do it all the time! Ha !

    I like this idea and I have actually done it before. I have had several dates at places like carnivals, video arcades, and park playgrounds. It definitely makes the date less serious and brings out the laughs.

    Fun dates are always the best. Dinner and a movie dates are for people who have no creative spark in them. I only do those types of dates when the weather is bad.

    This is the dream date for me – grown people becoming kids again ( i am not that old, but still … ). I also think that this is absolutly romantic and whatever you do on your date you can’t do anything wrong at all – you are “playing” kis after all. Anyway i’ve seen that kind of dates in some movies, but i’ve never been on such one myself. I hope i could fix this mistake in the near future :)
