I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again... my daughter is awesome. She was sick of my son doing the same old worn out dates, i.e. watch a movie, go to a movie, etc... So she sent him a list of ideas that he could do for his dates and I just loved them. I thought they were definitely share-able, so here they are (plus a few more I added)... 

Dates! Appropriate for ages 16 and up, but probably more appealing to the younger crowd. Print out the ones you want, cut them into strips and put them in a jar. Let your date choose or just let it be inspiring for you, so you don't get in a date rut!

  •  Build a fire and roast mallows
  •  Go doorbell ditching
  • Cover your eyes and pick $5 movie
  • Go to an art show and get hot chocolate
  • Go get frozen yogurt and get on the roof of the Eccles center or other building
  • Draw with sidewalk chalk
  • Cook her pizza
  •  Find a music concert/local event
  • Go Sledding (on snow or sand)
  • Get hot chocolate or a soda, walk around a park and swing on swings
  • Buy fruit and make smoothies/milkshakes
  • Denny's run no matter what time- play 'I Spy' on the way
  • Paint each other's faces and then go out for ice cream
  • Play chess (winner gets something/ loser loses something- like choosing where to eat/what movie to watch)
  • Play 20 questions while making brownies
  • Get temporary tattoos, put them in matching visible places, buy candy and have Mario Cart battle
  • Play a board game in student center or a random public place
  • Play a prank on a mutual friend (decorate car, TP their house)
  • Hit golf balls into a lake
  • Buy each other outfits at a second-hand store and go out to dinner
  • Go on a hike, but not on a trail
  • Find coupons online and let them decide what you do that night
  • Get away from the lights of town and go stargazing with the free Sky Map app
  • Create a scavenger hunt for other couples and compete
  • Go play pool, mini golf or arcade games
  • Go to an art museum
