Oh My Goodness!! Can I just say how much fun I had with this date?!!! I wanted to do something outdoors and active – SO I decided to plan a frisbee golf date, but with a twist! I actually got my idea of the “twist” to this date from my family reunion. My mom planned a whole game of frisbee golf for our family, but had an activity to do at each hole. I took that same fun idea and applied it to my date! I was excited, so let the fun begin!
What you will need for this date: super cute printables (see below), tape if you are going to a park, or baskets if you are going to do this in the backyard, and of course…at least 1 frisbee. If you want to go pro, you can get specialty frisbees specifically for frisbee golf here!
Thanks to Colette from My Computer is My Canvas (who is so amazing!), I used her printables that I used to mark all my ‘holes’. Click HERE for her AMAZING download (and some extra ideas for how to do this at home). Thanks, Colette!!!
Before the date began, I went to the park and mapped out where I wanted each ‘hole’ (tree) to be for the game. If you don’t have a park close, or want to just stay home, Colette’s printable is PERFECT for you. I then went home and prepared my activity slips. I was going to type these out, but my Microsoft Word decided to quit working, so I hand wrote all of mine, put a cute border around each one, and then cut them into 1-inch strips.
Here is what each of my strips said:
Hole 1: Name the top 5 most attractive physical things/features about your spouse
Hole 2: Name the 5 most attractive things about your spouse’s personality or character
Hole 3: Name 5 things you did today that your spouse didn’t know about
Hole 4: Name 5 places you wouldn’t mind moving to
Hole 5: Name 5 desserts you could eat right now
Hole 6: Name 5 favorite ways your spouse makes you feel special
Then I made a sheet that had consequences of both if you lose or win a hole. This sheet read…
If you lose (a hole), you get to choose one from the list:
- 5 push-ups
- 5 sit-ups
- 5 leg squats
If you win (a hole), you get to choose one from the list:
- 5 kisses
- 5 hugs
- 5 kisses & hugs intermixed
- 5 of whatever you want
On a tie, it’s a wash. You don’t have to do any of the exercises, but you both get a reward! Yahoo!
Anyway, we started out our date eating at home, and then left the kids with a sitter and headed off to the park with our frisbees. Joseph helped me tape all the numbers and activities to the trees I had already mapped out. We then took the scorecards and decided what par each hole was going to be. And let the game begin! I have to say that I held my own except for the first and last holes. I ended behind but not by much. I was proud of myself because I usually lose BIG time to him, especially in sporting events :).
We ended the date by getting smoothies. We had SO much fun on this date. I think the activities during the game was what MADE this date! They spurred good conversations, flirting, and laughs. As we finished up Joseph commented how much fun this date was and that he wanted an encore in the future. What more can you ask for but for your date to want to do it again?! Have so much fun. We did!
