16 Date Night Ideas for after the Kids go to Bed
After becoming a mom to two adorable little girls, I definitely feel the need for at-home date nights, after the kids go to bed. Finding a sitter, arranging it in advance, packing the kids up to go to the grandparents, sometimes at the end of a long day, all we want to do is stay-in for date night. With my oldest having a crazy early bedtime, at 6pm often, it’s been amazing to have these few uninterrupted hours together.
The thing is, coming up with fun ideas can be a challenge. But I’m making it my personal goal to integrate more fun date nights at home. Here are some fun ideas I can’t wait to try! I’m leaving out dinner and a movie/tv show at home, because I feel like that’s our regular, and a great one, but I want to change things up!
Play a Card game or boardgame
Star-gazing in the backyard
Fire in the backyard with S’Mores & Mixed Drinks (we put in a homemade firepit)
Give each other back or foot rubs
Read a book out loud
Listen to an audiobook while doing an art project
Bake and decorate cookies together
Stage and take artsy pictures of each other
Do a home improvement project together
Have a “finger foods” only dinner and feed each other
Have a romantic candlelit dinner (the food doesn't have to be fancy, anything is fancy by candlelight)
First Word game- write out adjectives on slips of paper and then take turns drawing and sharing the first memory that comes to mind with your spouse
