Playing Dates
(for Ages 22-24)

Play a two-player video game with your arms linked while holding the controllers. (Works best with a racing game)

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

Go golfing in the snow. Set up the holes in a large area, and play with brightly colored balls.

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.

Play capture the flag in a forested area or large field

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.

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

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.)

Buy two disposable cameras. Then go around the town to unusual signs, kiddy rides, or to the park and take pictures (together and separate). As a second date, get together after the pictures are developed (don't forget refreshments).

Play laser tag.

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.

Get together with another couple. Mark off boundaries throughout the town, and play hide and go seek with cars. You and your date go hide, and then call the other couple with a clue (i.e. go the local health dept call with a clue "Aids". It was tons of fun and the only expense was the gas!

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.

Many people don't have pools and/or aren't near the ocean... so why not have a party using the sprinklers in your yard? Have people bring things like kiddie pools and pool inflatable toys.

Invite several couples over to your house for dinner. When they come out to the back yard, the girls can start throwing water balloons, and spraying the water hose. If the guys are really smart they'll pay you back. Afterwards, chill and visit over hot pizza.

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.

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.
