Special Occasions
(for Ages 16-18)

Have dinner inside a playhouse and act like you are on the roof garden of an elegant hotel. Ask a friend to cater the meal.

Take an elderly couple on a drive to the canyon, lake, mountains, or nearest river. Ask them to share stories about when they grew up, courted, and married. Ask them about their family. Ask them how things have changed.

For lunch, eat egg salad sandwiches. For dessert, eat your Easter candy while reading passages in the Bible.

Visit a nursing or retirement home and talk to people about "the old days." Take notes and use the most interesting story to make a booklet from construction paper. On another date present the booklet to the person who told the story.

Make a set of building blocks for a less fortunate child. Blocks can be made with scraps of wood. Have someone cut out various shapes on a table saw (don't do this yourself unless you have experience). With your date, sand and paint the blocks. On a subsequent date, wrap the blocks in gift paper, put them on someone's porch, ring the doorbell, and run. If you want a really good feeling, swear each other to secrecy (don't tell anyone else about this act of service).

Buy clothing accessories at a thrift shop for your date, that you each wear for a Formal Dance later that evening (make it a challenge). Or conduct a scavenger hunt to acquire clothing accessories. Maybe you could each choose an accent that you use when asking for articles.

Dye boiled eggs together and hide them. Invite several other couples over and host an Easter egg hunt.

Help decorate for a friend's wedding. Or offer to collect, organize, and deliver the wedding gifts to someone's home. Or decorate the car TASTEFULLY (no pranks). Find a way to make this day special and memorable.

Is your friend an athlete? Gather newspaper clippings of his/her accomplishments. Put them in a scrapbook and spend a special evening asking about the sacrifices and work it took reach his/her goals.

Go to a church dance.

Hike to a peaceful place and take time to talk about God, Jesus Christ, and your beliefs about why we are here on the earth. This is a wonderful opportunity to let the Holy Ghost speak to your heart and spirit.

Plan a surprise anniversary party for your parents.

Get up early and go to a sunrise Easter service.

Dress up as pilgrims and have a pre-Thanksgiving dinner with several other couples.

Secretly collect little mementos of a friend. Plan a "This is Your Life" party and surprise your friend.
