Get in the car and drive into the sunset together! You don’t have to have a destination in mind, go for a ride. It’s always nice just to simply get some fresh air, play a silly car game and JUST drive.
Find a beautiful spot with a good view of the sky and look at the stars! They are so beautiful, and it doesn’t cost a thing! You can even bring a small picnic or a blanket to make it even cozier.
Have an at-home wine tasting.
Have a bunch of wine at home? Make your own at-home wine tasting! Pour a few glasses of wine and guess what kind of wine it is! You can even do a beer tasting too! 🙂 Want to make it more fun? Blind fold & guess!
Enjoy a picnic in your backyard or even drive way.
Spread out a blanket and bring some leftovers from the fridge! You don’t have to spend any money, and a change of scenery makes leftovers more fun. Grab those cards or board games as well.
Build a time capsule together
Gather a bunch of your favorite things from the year! Put them in a box and set a date for a few years in the future. Then, make another date to open it! You can get as creative as you want, but it doesn’t have to be extravagant. Also don’t forget how to write y’all didn’t kill each other after going thru this quarantine. (LOL)
Go for a hike or ride your bikes together
Find a hiking trail nearby, and take a stroll together! This is a great way to get outdoors and spend some quality time together. Carl and I love going on family walks, we sometimes play eye spy or ask each other random questions just to laugh and spice up the discussion.
Camp out in your backyard
Bring your tent and camping supplies to the backyard! Enjoy a fun day of camping without ever having to actually leave the house. Have a fire pit? Make some smores or popcorn – we LOVE using our fire pit!
Carl and I love playing dominos, skipbo or patch work. I have an entire blog post on our favorites. Click HERE to read!
Make Dinner or Breakfast together.
When Carl and I usually are working a lot, this is something we really enjoy doing together. We try to make breakfast together every Saturday and Sunday, it’s honestly something I look forward to! 🙂
Play spin the bottle
This might sound a little old school, but it can be creative and fun! Place a few fun (and free) activities in a circle. Then, spin the bottle to decide what you’ll do! 😉
