Fun Activities for Couples

With Young Kids

Bowling with a twist-- Take turns drawing from a hat. Some suggestions are between the legs, on 1 leg, backwards, or with your left hand.

Go on a scavenger or treasure hunt -- Make a map with fun clues and end up wherever you like. Some suggestions are: ice cream parlor, back at your house with a great gift for the whole family, or your family's favorite restaurant.

Write love letters to each other -- After the kids go to bed, read them to each other.

Go to a farm -- Pick your own fruit and vegetables together.

Make a family genealogy book together -- It is a great opportunity for you two to learn more about each other's history. Then you can share it with your children.

Go to the zoo, movie theater, amusement park, or arcade -- keep the kids close but make sure you two are having together time too

While the kids are in school, have a lunch or breakfast date instead of a dinner date.
