3 Creative Date Night Ideas
VCR REMINISCING DATE IDEA: June 7th
VCR day! Do you still have one of these? We do. Make a date with your husband and curl up to watch one of your favorite VHS tape movies together.
I love this photo of the older couple on the big red couch. I’d love a big red couch to curl up with my husband when I’m in my 60s, 70s, and 80s. VCRs will be ancient history then though I suppose.
BANANA SPLIT DREAM-BOAT DATE IDEA: June 9th
“Life’s too short. Eat dessert first.” Banana Split Day! Make these classic sweet treats at home with your husband. Or try these twists on the banana splits.
or a breakfast treat – Banana Split Pancakes
Or if your husband is like mine and doesn’t like bananas try my recipe.
Berry Dream Boat parfaits
2 cups milk, vanilla pudding mix, low-fat or fat-free whipped cream, fresh berry assortment (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries), 1/2 cup Golden Graham cereal or 2 large graham crackers, chocolate or strawberry syrup, and chocolate chips (optional)
1. Whisk together the milk and vanilla pudding mix for 2 minutes. Set it aside in the refrigerator for at least five minutes.
2. Meanwhile, chop your fresh fruit into bite-sized pieces. Put graham crackers or cereal into a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.
3. Pull pudding from fridge and place a generous layer on the bottom. Top with some berries and whipped cream. Repeat and layer. Top it off with cherries, chocolate or strawberry syrup, and crumbled Golden Grahams cereal or graham cracker crumbs. Throw in some chocolate chips for good measure if you like.
Don’t forget to remind your loved one just how much of a “dream boat” he is!
LET’S GO FLY A KITE DATE IDEA: June 10th
Ride the Wind Day. Pack a picnic to take to the park or head to the beach to fly a kite with your significant other. June 10th is also Iced Tea Day so don’t forget to pack iced tea in a thermos to share. You can pick a kite up at Walmart or a hobby/craft store usually or make them yourself. You can always make your kites on a day with no wind and take them out later. For kite flying tips, click here. For making your own kite instructions, click here. You can combine the June 7th date night with the June 10th date night by going to fly a kite and then watching an old VHS tape of Mary Poppins – “Let’s go fly a kite. Up to the highest height!”
*I attempted to find a VHS version of Mary Poppins online and failed. If you have one, kudos to you!
