Prescription for Fun

by

Everyone needs a little fun with their spouse. I have a prescription for you on how to have more fun. Here’s how to fill the order…

First, grab an unused small pill bottle.
If you have an old empty one from a previous prescription you can use that. Or you can go to your local pharmacy and ask to buy a new one. If you are lucky like me, they’ll give you a whole bag full for free!

Next, go to your stash of scrapbook paper and find a cute one to trace the lid. You want to cover up the logo on top. (If you don’t care about this, you can skip this step.) Then cut out your circle and mod-podge it on the lid.

Then you’ll need to adhere the prescription label to the bottle. I made a mock label in photoshop with fake info.

You can download yours – without our names!
I used clear packing tape and put it around the whole thing.
Now you need to fill the bottle with the “pills” and instructions.
The pills are those dissolve-able capsules that turn into foam shapes. I picked mine up at the Dollar Store. Eighteen for a dollar! But I just put 3 in the bottle. (Give the rest to your kids, they’ll love them!)
To play you will dissolve one capsule in warm water.

(Sometimes waiting for it is the best part! Ooooo….the anticipation of what the shape will be!)

Now on to hiding it.
My brother and his wife taught us this game. (Remember I LOVE games!) Take turns putting the little foam shape somewhere your spouse can find it. Once they’ve found it, they hide it for you. Kind of funny and childish, but it is fun to suddenly see this foam dinosaur in the book I’m reading, under the toothpaste cap, in a pocket, beneath a deodorant cap. The possibilities are endless! Just reuse until it takes a casualty – like ours did. Poor T-Rex lost an arm. Oh well, time to dissolve a new “pill.”
Download the game instructions here. Print it out, fold it up, and stick it in the bottle with the 3 “pills” and give to your spouse.
Where are you going to hide it first?P.S. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway! It ends tomorrow….hurry.P.P.S. And if you live in Utah, watch us on Studio 5 tomorrow morning at 11:00am.THIS POST IS LINKED UP TO:Hope Studios All Thingz Related Silly Little Sparrow Today’s Creative Blog New Nostalgia

    Dating Divas,
    I have a request. I know many of you have not been married as long as I have, but I am coming up on my 9th Wedding Anniversary and am looking for some creative way to celebrate it with my husband. So, what I was thinking is maybe it would be helpful to other readers, and not just me, if you did some posts on anniversary celebrations. I would love to come to your blog each year and know that you would have a fabulous idea to get me thinking of ways to celebrate that year of marriage.
    If this is not your type of thing, I understand, I just know that you Divas are very creative and probably would have some clever ideas for those of us who aren't so cleaver.
    Thanks!

    We all definitely fit into the category of having anniversaries every year so this is a great idea! Thanks so much for your input, we'll talk about this particular topic and hopefully get some anniversary ideas your way! My husband and I have been married 7 years this September, so I am not too far behind you!
