Group Dates
(for Ages 16-18)

Have a Progressive dinner. The idea is to go from house to house for each phase of the dinner. At one house you have appetizers, at another the salad, at another the main dish, and so on. You might stop at four to six houses for the full meal.

Invite a bunch a friends over. Ask each couple or person to bring something to the party, like popcorn, candy, drinks, and a favorite scary movie (if they have one). It doesn't matter if you don't watch all the movies that night. Just be sure to take some breaks between movies so that people can meet with each other. Pass out pillows and blankets, so the guys can hide from the scary parts.

Have a Sundae party. Buy several different flavors of ice cream, some toppings (hot fudge, sprinkles, etc.) and let people make their own sundaes.

Go to a football game. Dress up in team colors, with painted faces and signs. Remember, it's the attitude that counts. If you are with a group, award prizes for the most bizarre and the most clever outfits, signs, etc.

Go to a campground or picnic area where you can have an open fire. Barbeque hot dogs or chicken over an open fire. Finish the evening with an address from an inspirational or motivational speaker (either a live speaker or play a recording).

Invite someone to teach the group how to lead music. Then form an orchestra using your imagination to create instruments out of common household items.

Eat dinner with your left hand tied to that of the person on the left, and your right to the person on the right.

You and your date find a large box, preferably tall and thin (but wide enough for you both. Get some spray paint or whatever decorations you'll need, and make it into a car. Have all the couples "park" in someone's living room with their date to watch a movie, or some people do it in their back yard during the summer time if the TV is big enough for everyone to see and can be put in front of the door. Set up the kitchen/dining room as the snack bar for popcorn, candy, and soda.

Give each couple in the group a toothpick. The object of the game is to go and find something bigger and better in place of the toothpick. At first it is easy. After all, an old shoe is a lot bigger and better than a toothpick! However, the old shoe will be tougher to top than the little toothpick. The trading goes on until your designated time runs out. Then all the couples need to return to where they started to see who has the biggest and best thing.

Spend an evening working on a hobby or craft activity with your friends. Mold articles out of clay, work on a potter's wheel, modge podge a picture, learn to macramé, or any number of other fun craft ideas.

Have a tailgating party, without the game. Have a competition between cars for the best outfits, food, music, etc.

Go to a local thrift store and buy the largest pair of pajamas or jogging clothes you can find. One pair for each person. Then go home, put them on over your regular clothes and stuff them with pillows, blankets, etc. and have a sumo wrestling match.

Create a local Road Rally (two couples per car). Start each car two minutes apart. The group making the best time on the course is the winner for the night's contest. At the end of the rally, get together for ice cream sundaes.

Go to the boat dock and rent a boat or ship for a private party. Go out on the water for dinner and dancing.

As a group, embellish (enhance/improve) calendars with pictures from magazines, newspapers, photos, or your own drawings. Write in birthdays and other important events. Swap calendars at the conclusion of the evening.
