Night In Boxes: Date Night In & Kids Night In

After the kids are sleeping, make sure to still take time for you and your significant other. 

  1. Turn the kid’s daytime fort/tent into a date night oasis. Add lights, lanterns, candles, pillows, blankets apps and drinks.
  2. Have a wine or beer tasting.  Many restaurants are offering wine/beer to go.
  3. Make a bucket list for projects you want to complete over the year or activities you want to do as a family.
  4. Have a romantic dessert night. Break out that fondue pot you received as a wedding gift and may not have used yet. (You know it’s true!) Try this chocolate fondue recipe
  5. Sit down and watch your wedding video or look through your wedding photo album. Awe!!

  1. Play Board Games. Clue, anyone? Pick a new one and learn how to play it together. Or teach your partner one you already know. Since you are learning something new, this is a great chance to order takeout so that you don’t have to think about what to make.
  2. Do a puzzle.
  3. Have a fire outside complete with s‘mores and a warm drink.
  4. Star gaze with a Telescope!
  5. Bake a special treat together to surprise the kids with the next day. A big hit at our house is cut out sugar cookies. Decorate some together and leave a few extra for the kids to decorate the next day.
  6. Find something you’ve wanted to learn and watch YouTube. Learn to dance or paint, maybe?
