Easy Date Night Idea + Free Coloring Pages for ADults
Why is it that some of the simplest pleasures in life happen when you’re a kid and you don’t appreciate them? Building an epic fort, having a Nerf gun battle, putting the sprinkler under the trampoline, and, of course, coloring! Coloring pages for adults have gotten huge over the last few years (which is why we’re seeing adult coloring books all over), and for good reason. Coloring is fun and relaxing and gives your brain something to do other than scrolling on your phone for hours. Some coloring books for adults are even marketed specifically for reducing anxiety!
We didn’t want to miss out on any of the adult coloring fun, so we came up with a date idea all about that simple childhood pleasure… coloring! Things might have been simpler when you were a kid, but you didn’t get to date your spouse back then! So buckle up for a fun date night you’re not going to forget any time soon.

Making Date Night Extra Colorful
Now the rest is simple. Grab some crayons and color. Happy date night.
Juuuuuuust kidding. Of COURSE we have some more fun plans up our sleeve for this date night. Who do you think we are?
After you have your coloring pages and something to color with (We personally prefer twistable crayons or colored pencils, but dual tip brush pens can create some really awesome art!), get yourselves cozy with a movie and some snacks or take-out.
You can color your pictures while you watch a show, chat (our Question Game for Couples could be a perfect addition to this date night!), or make it a competition! You can set a timer to see who can finish their picture first, or post your finished products to social media and have your friends and family vote on the best one. Winner gets to choose the next date night!
Another super fun idea is to head to this site and turn one of your own photos into a coloring page. Color one of your wedding photos together, color the same family photo, or color pictures of each other! You might just end up with a keepsake you want to frame.
Colorful in the Bedroom
All this quality time is going to have you feeling extra close (isn’t that the point of a regular date night?), so we HIGHLY recommend these body crayons for some extra fun! Have the wife draw a picture on the husbands back while he holds a paper and crayon and tries to mimic what she’s drawing. See how close he was to the actual drawing, and then switch places! You can also use these crayons to make your spouse one of your own personal adult coloring books, but we’ll leave those ideas totally up to you. 😉
Now grab your printables below, grab some crayons, and color! (Seriously this time.)
