A place for inexpensive date ideas :)

Being true to the season we had a witch theme date. We dawned witches attire, watched Witch Hazel cartoons, and had witchy treats (pictured below). It was a bewitching evening. To see more Halloween dates click on the seasonal link to the right.

For our date we put together a puzzle. Every time we put a piece together in the puzzle we were supposed to share a memory of us together. We started putting the puzzle together faster than we were sharing memories so we just switched off sharing memories. It was a fun time!!

We went on a spy themed date. We took different tests to see if we could be spies. The first test was an intelligence test. Our intelligence test included making a code for our partner and having the partner decode the message. This website is where we found the key for our codes https://sites.google.com/site/codesforscouts/sliding-scale-or-cryptograph The next test was the physical fitness test. We had “lasers” set up that we had to wind our way through. The idea came from this website http://theweekendhomemaker.com/boredom-busters They used painters tape, but we didn’t have any so we used yarn. Heather Feather SpyTy Spy We passed the tests!! The final part of our night was training. To train we watched “Get Smart.”

We love cooking together! This date was simple but fun. We made a yummy treat, German Chocolate Cake Bars, and played games while they were cooking.
