Cheap Date Ideas

My Focus on Marriage.
I think that TK and I need to make more time for date night. And even though things are tight, we can still managed to do SOMETHING. Here is a list from and its just one of many. They have First Date ideas, romantic ideas, ect. But this list was specific to us and probably many of you. Hope you enjoy it and get an idea to treat yourselves to a night out!

Go on a nature hike—pick wild flowers or have a picnic
Do some service. Rake leaves, plant flowers for a neighbor, shovel snow on all the walks of a given street... etc. ~Julie
Get plain white pillow cases and paint and create your own pillow cases! ~Samantha Garrett
Go to a public place, like starbucks, and just hang out and talk ~Celia
Draw pictures of each other... show off that artsy side.
Play UNO in the middle of a public place
Visit a nursing home or a rest home
Describe your life in pictures by cutting them out of magazines or make up a story from the pictures.
Watch the sunrise—watch the sunset
Play Board games—Monopoly, Candy Land, Sorry
Pick Wild Berries
Dollar date
Directions: start with a main dish (like pizza) then go to the store and give each person $1. Each person chooses something (for a dollar or less) to have with your main dish.
Play Frisbee golf
Find a muddy area, dress in old clothing and have a mud fight.
Tour Historical Buildings
Play your favorite sport together
Play capture-the-flag or hide-and-seek in a park
Play croquet at a park—maybe on your school campus grounds
Go rollerblading – better yet, go roller-skating!
Play pool, foosball, or ping-pong
Go visit your local planetarium
Play Guitar Hero or Rock Band
Free factory tours
Have a coupon date – go through the local newspaper together and find coupons to use on your date
Go fishing
Make Tee Shirts – start with some blank white or collared tees, then get creative with sharpies and paint.
Find a good service project or volunteer activity in your area
Walk through the library or a bookstore—Find a corner to sit and read a children’s book together
Have a cotton ball fight—buy several bags of cotton balls to throw at each other (or marshmallows)
Draw Pictures with Sidewalk Chalk
Story time—take turns recording pieces of a story
Directions: One person starts recording a story while the other leaves the room ending their segment with “and then…” the other person picks up telling the next part of the story, and ends their segment with “and then…” this continues until someone decides to tell “The end”.
Go and volunteer together at the local animal shelter
Geocaching—This can be a lot of fun
Wash your cars together—Its always fun to play with water
Plant something together—A tree, flowers, vegetables… anything at all!
Build something together out of play dough
Go to Wal-Mart or Target late at night and play with the toys
Walk your dog(s)—or borrow a neighbor’s dog
Have a water balloon fight or set up a slip-in-slide
Blindfold your date for a surprise dinner and take them to McDonalds. Only, make your table really fancy with a tablecloth, nice dishes and cups, etc. Craft your own fancy menu and enlist your roommates or younger siblings to be your servers. ~Laurie
Go To Mcdonalds And Order Random Food. Then Put Blindfolds On Eachother And Guess What The Food You Randomly Ordered Food Is. Its super Fun And You Get To Eat At The Same Time ! ~ Claudia
Handmake cards and drop them off to random neighbors in the area. They can say things like "rose are red, violets are blue, you don't me and I don't know you! Have a great day anyway!" or put a funny joke in them. Using crayons to disguise your age is another fun twist. See just how childish you can make them look. Then go drop them off on front steps around a neighborhood. A small offering of candy or cookies is always a good way to pin the card to the doorstep so it doesn't fly away.

Peace, Love, and CookieDough.
