Theme Dates
(for Ages 16-18)

Have a do-it-yourself party. Let your guests decorate the room with materials you have provided for them. Play the games that are suggested by those at the party. For refreshments, serve banana splits where couples can put their own together.

Drive around the city and look at unique and beautiful home gardens. Stop at the florist to pick up some supplies (augmenting resources from your home's garden). Then make a flower bouquet, which your date gets to take home.

Have a 40's theme party (or 50's or 60's or 70's). Dress up in clothes of that decade. Prepare authentic refreshments and games. As an ice breaker, tape different names of famous people from the decade on the back of each person. As you meet each person, you give that individual a clue to help him/her figure out the name on his/her back. You could also watch a video for that decade.

Make up a treasure hunt that covers a large area. The first couple to complete the course and return with the treasure is the winner. Assign each couple a color. They will take only the clue of their assigned color, leaving the remaining clues. You can change the order of clues for each couple. Have a celebration party at the final destination.

Plan and carry out a date centered around a certain color. If your car is red, dress up in red, eat red meat, red beans, have cherry pie, etc. on red plates, with red punch to drink. You can choose any color.

Invite each person to bring a magic trick to the party. If the tricks are good, great!. If not, people will still have fun.

Have a country-western party. Rent or borrow a tractor and wagon or a truck with a flat bed, then pile hay on the back. Take a ride through a vacant field, along some rural roads or through a park-singing all the way. A good follow-up to a hayride and songfest would be a lively square dance.

Plan your party around a certain day, month, or year or era. Develop your theme so that games, dancing, and refreshments center around that time.

Record storm or street sounds, people talking, etc. Choose a theme and select sounds around your theme.

Have a hot tub party.

Prepare a paper bag with various items such as a baseball bat, straw hat, artificial flower, pan, or other items. Divide the group up into pairs of four or more. Each set of actors and actresses receives a bag of props which they must use in writing and performing a short play or skit.

Make a puppet theatre out of a big cardboard box with your date and make puppets out of socks. Make up a play and have a live performance in the park.

Choose something you both enjoy doing, and work together on that particular project. For instance, you could refinish old furniture, work with leather goods or make pottery.

Have an "all comedy day". No bad moods allowed. Tell each other lame jokes or embarrassing or funny childhood memories. Eat funny foods, like cookies that are rainbow colored or foods that are in the shape of a funny face (like sundaes from Friendly's). Then at night, go to a comedy club.

Rent a Disney movie, bring Disney memorabilia, and make Disney theme snacks. Invite brothers and sisters to participate.
