Date Night in A Jar -Dare #10
Okay, I confess. This is NOT my original idea! But it was too clever to pass up.
All you need are some ordinary extra-wide Popsicle sticks (aka tongue depressers), a mason jar, and a felt pen (and you can also pick out ribbon or other decorative items if you choose).
Jennifer, the lady who posted it (it wasn’t her original idea either), suggested color coordinating your date nights – Red (for fancy expensive nights out, requiring planning), Dark Pink (for at home dates), and Light pink (for away from home dates that don’t require too much planning or money). She spray painted each stick, let it dry, and then wrote on them with a felt pen. You don’t need to color coordinate – it’s up to you.
You could also do different color nail polish spots on either end to help you decipher which one is which, or colorful stickers. (My suggestion). Get creative!
Jennifer also added a color-coding card – attaching it to the jar with ribbon.
Brainstorm with your husband today about date nights that the two of you would enjoy and include things that you enjoy and he enjoys that the two of you could either introduce to each other or enjoy together. Or… if you want to surprise him – by all means, go away! (Just beware… you might be racking your brain a bit more.)

I’d love to see what date night ideas you come up with if you try this – or even if you don’t. Drop Me A Line!
