Valentine’s day is just around the corner and Ryan and I definitely spend February 14th at home these days. Not only do we both agree on avoiding the crowds, we also have 3 kids under 5 with another one on the way. That makes going out very difficult and very expensive. We definitely do not let that stop us from making the most of our evenings and finding creative ways to have fun from time to time. We haven’t quite decided what we want to do this year for Valentine’s day, but last year we played 20 questions and learned so much about one another. It was actually really fun. We ended the evening with a movie and popcorn. Here are a few ideas for at home date ideas for those of you who are in the same boat as us!
At Home Date Ideas:
Build a fort and make s’more’s (Get an indoor s’more’s maker here)
Movie night with popcorn and your favorite candy
Play your kid’s (or your?) XBOX!
Play a board game
Netflix binge a new show together
Picnic on the living room floor
Watch a football (or baseball, etc.) game together
Make homemade ice cream with all the fixings
Play Never Have I Ever
Have a romantic candlelit dinner
Make homemade pizza
Camp out in your living room
Take the love language test and discuss your results
Have a paint party
Play 20 questions to learn more about one another
My sister and her husband recently had a paint party at home and make chocolate covered strawberries. I thought that was a really fun idea as well! You can still have fun at home without spending a ton of money and you can even stay in your pjs! I’m all about that these days! What do you guys have planned for Valentine’s Day?
