Embarrassing Dares for the Mall
Laughing with my husband is pretty much my favorite thing ever. There’s just something about laughing together that really helps us reconnect. Like marriage educator, Claudia Arp, says, “We’ve never met a couple on their way to divorce court who were having much fun together.” Well, this date is DEFINITELY one to crank up the laugh-factor in your relationship and is SO MUCH FUN! These hilarious and embarrassing dares can even be used for a group date or for a crazy adventure with kids. Seriously, it doesn’t get much sillier (or more fun!) than this. Ready to take a look at the date? Let’s go!
But first, we HAVE to give a giant “Thank you!” to our very own Diva Elizabeth for whipping up these mall-inspired printables for us. They’re made their way right to our shop-a-holic hearts and we just can’t get enough of them!
Embarrassing Dares Date Idea
It’s easy to get into a rut of just Redbox-ing or Netflix-ing a movie for date night- every date night. And while that can be a cheap and easy way to relax, it’s not always a great way to reconnect. At the end of the date I’ve usually just fallen asleep, and we haven’t even TALKED to each other. So here’s a fun date night alternative packed with embarrassing dares that will have you cracking up in no time. And don’t worry- it’s still totally cheap and easy! Promise. Just stick a few of the easy dares printables in your purse and go.
When I was in high school, my friends and I use to love to play Mall Dare. Anyone else? We’d write up funny and embarrassing dares on slips of paper and then head to the mall. Then we took turns picking out a slip of paper and completing the (totally embarrassing) dare that was written on it. So many inside jokes and memories were born playing Mall Dare. In fact, my husband heard so many “Mall Dare stories” from me that he decided he wanted to try it out ourselves and this date night version of the game was born!
When I first heard that idea, I was a little apprehensive. After all, Mall Dare is one thing when you’re a silly teenager, but it’s a whole different ball game when you’re a grown woman and mother of 3. Right? Wrong! I decided to be a good sport and play along (my husband can charm me into doing anything), and we seriously had SO much fun doing the crazy and easy dares!! By the end of the night we were laughing ourselves silly. Something about acting like a kid again with the embarrassing dares totally reminded me of when we first started dating. We just loved it and I think you will to! Keep reading to take a closer look at all the deets.
