(for Ages Under 16)
Pick a type of music you donít usually listen to and go listen to a live performance. Take note of the people there who enjoy it. Try to listen through their ears. The local newspaper's entertainment section is a good place to look for venues.
Attend a summer rodeo. Almost every big city has a rodeo, and in some places, even high schools compete. Check the internet to find an event. Wear jeans, boots, and a cowboy hat. You don't have to wear boots and hat, if you don't have them, but you can check out the local thrift store.
Get together with some others and do a readersí theater. Go to a library and check out several copies of a play youíve always wanted to see, assign parts, and have a dramatic evening.
Select a play. Bring enough scripts, props and costumes (everyone can bring something). If there are more parts than people, no problem. Video tape the play. If you have enough people, select more than one play and have a competition.
Take a dance class and learn a new dance. Classes are offered through private dance studios, local recreation departments, churches, and schools. Dance lessons are also available online. Or invite an instructor to teach your group. Remember, practice makes perfect, but it takes perseverance.
Go to standards nights together.
Dress up and act out nursery rhymes or tall tales. Video tape your performance. If you can add creative costumes and make-up, it will increase you ability to be more dramatic.
Be tourists in your own city. Take a foot or bus tour of the monuments, museums, landmarks, memorials, etc. Get brochures from your local travel bureau or information center. Donít forget your cameras. Seek out a popular restaurant for lunch or dinner.
Take some paints and an art pad. Along with these, carry a packed picnic basket with fried chicken, potato salad, and other tidbits as well as punch and homemade pie. Take your date to a beautiful spot to paint. Compare paintings. On a follow-up date, your masterpieces can be completed in frames of your own creation.
Get a travel guidebook for your city (library or a bookstore). Visit attractions that are off the beaten path (or that you have never seen). A guidebook may also contain self-guided walking tours that are fun and interesting. Or get a guidebook for a nearby city and make a day trip there. Plan to grab lunch at an outdoor cafť.
Paint a picture together and "accidentally" get into a paint fight. Make sure you were clothes that can be replaced.
Visit a museum or historical site. Arrange to take a guided tour. Often, museums offer headphones and/or a brochure for a self-guided tour.
Listen to a radio countdown of the "Top 10" songs. Together rate each piece on artistry, value of words, overall effect, and music.
If you live close to a zoo, spend a whole day there. See if you can name the native countries of animals. Check to see if your zoo has geocache sites to test your treasure hunting skills. Bring your siblings or other relatives to learn about how your date interacts with children.
