Playing Dates
(for Ages 19-21)

Play "Family Feud". The losing family serves the other a sit down dinner

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.

Play hide-and-go-seek at night with partners (tie partners hands together).

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.

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.

Take a big group to the mall and have prewritten scenarios i.e. Fake a breakup, looking for engagement rings, superman rescuing damsel in distress, etc.... Each couple chooses a paper and must do whatever it says to do and must have the other couples witness it. However, the couples cannot let it be known that they are with the couple doing the thing on the paper so they have to act like they don't know them.

Go to a park together during the day and play on the playground equipment (swing, slide, teeter-totter).

Get a can of foamy shaving cream for each person. Find somewhere that you can make a mess, pass out cans, then ATTACK! Have a fun shaving cream fight. Make sure your dates have clothes on that they don't mind getting dirty.

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.

You will need some water-based paint that you can get at any local home improvement store, water balloons, and a turkey baster. To fill up the balloons, use the turkey baster to put paint in the balloons and then fill the rest of it with water. Go to a park (one with trees is the best) and stash buckets of balloons throughout the park and have fun throwing them at each other. You will get messy, so be sure to bring clothes that will be ruined. If other people are around, be extremely careful.

Play laser tag.

Play Frisbee flag football (substitute a Frisbee for a football). Limit the number of downs, based upon the size of the field.

Have a sidewalk decoration contest with colored chalk.

Race Go-Karts.

Play broom hockey on the ice. Find a frozen pond (MAKE SURE THE ICE IS THICK ENOUGH!). Have everyone bring a broom. Use a tennis ball for "puck". Set up goals on either end. Dress warmly, and take breaks to have hot chocolate.

In the fall, take a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate outside. Lay the blanket on the ground underneath a tree, drink hot chocolate, and play a board game (battleship, stratego, trouble, etc.)
