Challenges to play on a car sing along date.

  1. Grab your printable car karaoke challenge cards, your phone with the playlist downloaded, and any snacks you choose to bring along!
  2. Get in the car and start driving. You don’t necessarily need a destination for this date night – you can just drive around! However, some challenges encourage you to interact with others on the road, while others will have you park the car. Just keep that in mind. 😉
  3. To play the car karaoke game, one person selects a challenge card and presses “song shuffle” on the playlist. The playlist will determine what song that person will sing along to, and the challenge card will dictate how they should sing.
  4. At the end of the song, it is the other person’s turn. Select a new challenge card, a new song, and begin again.
  5. Continue until all the car karaoke challenge cards have been completed or until you are ready for the final portion of your date . . .

Bonus Sexy Car Sing-Along Game

We always recommend ending a date night with a little something sexy! 😉 You can end this date with a car sing-along sexy challenge! We call it our Sing or Strip Game! The idea is to be able to sing the next five words in the song or lose a piece of clothing! Here is how it works:

  1. Park your car in a remote location. This might be your garage or a secret rendezvous location that you know of!
  2. One person opens the Car Sing-Along Songs: Car Date Night Edition playlist from Spotify and presses “shuffle.” As the song plays, the player controlling the playlist will hit pause at some point in the song.
  3. The other player must continue to sing the next five words of the song. If they are correct, roles reverse, and play continues. If they are wrong – they must remove an article of clothing.
  4. The first player to be completely sans-clothes loses . . . or do they? Wink! wink!

I met my husband, in a beginning ballroom dance class at the age of 15. He was my first crush, my first date, and twelve years (to the day) later we married. Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. I love dancing, hosting parties, photography, organizing & chocolate!
