DateNight: An Activity Book for Couples

I’m the kind of person who loves team bonding activities. A structured activity with a goal and a bit of fun thrown in? I’m in!

And hey, if it works for teams, why not for couples?

So I created DateNight, an activity book for couples. Each activity helps you to get to know each other more, and most of them involve creativity, theatrical expression, or friendly competition. For example, “How did we meet?” gets you drawing a comic strip of your origin story, and “Random Access Memory” gets you to act out and guess memories from your relationship.

The activities were inspired by all sorts of things — like self-help books, Buddhist meditations, life coaching exercises, improv games, art therapy, and children’s crafts. Basically, everything that I find fun and interesting. 😀

My hope is that these activities give couples a new avenue for honest insightful communication, plus help create new memories. Not everyone will be into these sorts of activities, so if you’re excited by them, remember to check in with your partner first before assuming they’ll do them with you. That conversation might help you find out what sort of activities they would like to do with you, so yay, you’ll have already learnt more about each other!

You can download the DateNight PDF here, and print out the whole book or the activity you’ll be trying. Note that there’s a blank page between each page, so that you can tear out each activity and template on its own.

I’d love to hear if you try DateNight out and enjoy the activities! Share your feedback here or send me an email.

May you all find joy, love and growth in your relationships. 😊

Thank you to my former partner Jacob Lyles for inspiring these activities and participating fully in them with me.
