Playing Dates
(for Ages 16-18)

We told the girls to be dressed in formals and bring two pairs of other clothes (one to get wet in and one to change into after we got wet). We didn't tell them where we were going when we picked them up (it's a good idea to let their parents in on what you are doing so they don't freak out). We ended up at my house where we had a tea party with tea party foods and sparkling grape juice for our 'tea'. After that, we changed clothes and played Twister, only this Twister was outside and the 'twist' was there was soapy water on the Twister boards. We used two boards so it worked better. We changed and had ice cream sundaes and played a few games. It was a lot of fun and everyone had a good time.

Have contests (guys against girls) doing things like miniature golf, video games, trivia games, relay races, etc. Spend the whole day doing a variety of different events. The losers (guys or girls) have to make dinner for the winners.

Climb trees.

Go to a large outdoor shopping plaza and play cops and robbers. Everyone brings a small squirt gun (no super soakers). You cannot go inside stores.

List all the city parks in your area which have playgrounds. Allow space next to each park to fill in a time and date. Over several dates, visit each park and swing together, then record the date and time until you have visited each playground. It is a great way to get to know each other and you'll learn a lot about your city's parks.

Have a competition making the most elaborate cardboard box car. Then "drive" the "cars" into the living room, and watch a movie. It's a DRIVE-IN!

Borrow a box of Legos, Kinex, building blocks, etc. and divide them evenly among couples. Each couple has 15 minutes to make a project. The winning couple (as determined by applause) receives a certificate or ribbon.

Have a sidewalk decoration contest with colored chalk.

Conduct an ice cream eating competition. Couples designate one person to compete. Set a bowl of ice cream in front of each designee, blindfold him or her, and have his or her partner feed the blindfolded contestant. The first to finish gets to pick a video for the group to watch.

Race Go-Karts.

Play backwards hide-and-go-seek. The person who is "it" hides and everyone else has to find him/her, then they have to hide with the person until the last person finds the whole group. The last person to find the whole group is "it". It is really fun trying to keep 10 or even 3 people quiet when a group is all together and someone else is close to finding them.

Play video games or pinball.

Make paper boats and race them in a stream, or launch them in a lake or pond. Take along some bread to feed the ducks.

Play "human" checkers. If there is not a board in your town, make a board with chalk.

Collect a variety of flat rocks and go to a lake for a rock-skipping contest.
