(for Ages 30-39)
Buy three blue ribbons and come up with different contests for the evening (i.e. pool, bowling, ping-pong, card games, etc.). The couple that wins two or more competitions receives dinner made by the other couple.
Get together with another couple or two and go on an ecology hike. As resources, get a Boy Scout fieldbook or conservation manual and visit a preserve or wetland or another outdoor setting. The group can participate in damming washes, planting grass or trees, or a clean-up project.
Spend an afternoon making a scavenger hunt for another couple you know (maybe one that just got together or is having an anniversary). Using a camera and cheap props, take your pictures together at a series of local landmarks or other recognizable places, then give the photos to the other couple to challenge them to find all the places, within a time limit. While they're on the search, make lunch or dinner and have it set up at the final landmark, to share with them or just surprise them.
Take a hunter's safety course at a local shooting range.
Buy some pre-made pizza crusts, pizza or spaghetti sauce, and toppings (sausage, pepperoni, cheese, mushrooms, etc.). Each couple creates half of a pizza with whatever toppings they like. Cook the pizzas and then have dinner. You can then go get ice cream for dessert.
Take a midnight hike and use flashlights to find your way. You might go to a waterfall or to a scenic spot. If you are away from the city, and the sky is clear, you can do some star gazing. Be prepared with water and snacks for the hike, and a first-aid kit, just in case.
Each couple buys a disposable camera and then in groups of two couples you go on a scavenger hunt. You have someone make up a list for what you need to find. Give everyone a time limit and go find your items on the list. The reason for two couples is so you and your date can be in the picture and have the other couple take the picture of you. At the end of the time limit, take your camera to a nearby one-hour photo lab and get them developed. Or display digital photos on the computer. Then have the person who made the list check out each couple's pictures and see who won the game.
Make homemade ice cream and then have sundaes. If you don't have access to an ice cream making machine, here's a twist. Use ziplock bags. Here's a recipe that works. Take 2 cups heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and put it in a quart-sized ziplock bag. Then seal that bag in another quart-sized ziplock bag. Put that double-sealed bag into a gallon-sized ziplock bag, and add 1 cup of rock salt and fill that bag 2/3 full with ice (crushed, if possible). Wrap that sealed bag in newspaper (several layers) and tape it up. The newspaper protects and insulates your creation. Shake the mixture for 15 minutes (you can carefully toss the bags back and forth to each other), then it is ready to serve.. If you can wait, put the mixture in the freezer for 2 hours to allow the ice cream to become more firm.
Write your own script, using nature as the setting, and film your own movie with a portable camera.
