A little bit ago I created a date night scavenger hunt kit for a fundraiser. Even though they’re not exactly games, I thought I’d post some of the activities here. They all come with printables. You can do all the activities in one night and make a scavenger hunt of it, or each could even be its own date.

What it is: A fun date activity that involves speed, shopping, and designing your dream home.

Best for: A married couple on a date.

What you need: A home improvement store, like Home Depot or Lowe’s. IKEA or a furniture store would also work great.

What to do: Print out the below printable, or just grab some paper and a pen. Then drive to the home improvement or furniture store of your choice. Now…drumroll please… CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve just won a build-your-own-dream-home sweepstakes (hypothetically speaking, that is)! Woo hoo! Happy music! Anything in the store you both see, want, agree on, and write down will be installed in your future dream home (hypothetically speaking, that is). The catch is, you only have 30 minutes (or however much time you want to give yourselves, more or less would be fine). Just set your timer and GO!

Alternately, if you don’t want a time limit at all, don’t feel like you have to have one. It’s just a fun chance to talk together as a couple about the types of furniture and fixtures you’d want if you were rich and famous and could afford whatever you wanted. 🙂

Printables: Here’s the printable that comes with the activity. If you print it at actual size (which I recommend), it’s a little smaller than an 8.5 x by 11 page, so you can trim it down. Hope you enjoy!
