Energetic Night Games for Couples

End the summer with this awesome group date!

Warm summer nights remind me of running around the neighborhood playing night games as kids. They were SOOOO fun! We wanted to bring back some of that fun for you and your spouse this summer! Grab a bunch of your friends and bring your running pants for an energetic and exciting date full of night games! {This TOTALLY counts as your workout for the day!} There are so many game options to choose from – including capture the flag, sardines, and fugitive. Plus, we’ve added a printable Night Games Card full of  ideas! Pick a few of your favorites and let the night games begin!!

When I told my cute hubby about this he was completely stoked about the idea! Night games bring out his competitive side. {I’m glad he’s on MY team!} He started making the guest list right away! Once we had a few couples in mind, we were ready to send out invites. My favorite way to deliver these invitations… doorbell ditching! Take a look at these cute invitations created by our lovely designer Erin of Printable Crush! She is so great to work with and I’m just loving everything we send her way!
Invitations and Awards
These little award ribbons were so cute I wanted to use them all over for decorations! Capture the flag is my favorite night game {if you can’t tell!}. I had Erin make an award ribbon just for that! It’s also a great game to play while waiting for the sun to go down, because it doesn’t require complete darkness. But in case the game does run past sundown, we love using these glow in the dark batons as flags.

Team Flags

When your guests arrive, divide everyone into two teams. We kept couples together, but you can split it any way you’d like – boys vs. girls or spouse vs. spouse! Once your teams are chosen, decide on the night games everyone wants to play. This is when the Night Games Card really comes in handy! Especially if you need a refresher on some of your childhood games.

Team Water Bottle Labels

Thirsty, anyone?? Add these Team Bottle Labels to your beverage of choice: soda, sports drink, or water. It’s a great way to refresh and support your team. 🙂 Hint – when adding them to a cooler full of ice, make sure to cover the label with tape to prevent the ink from running.

I am a spunky, adventure seeking lady! I'm lucky enough to be married to the cutest guy around, and therefore my three little boys are complete charmers. We just welcomed a baby little girl into our tribe! We feel complete as a family of four. I love crafting, running, cooking, pretty things and spending as much time with my family as I can.
