What do you do while in your car? Anything! Just parking your car and talking while you cuddle is a great date. Or you could go for a nice scenic drive and listen to music. After you're done sightseeing, you can get something to eat. A drive-in is a real fun place to eat at, and you never have to get out of your car. Fast food restaurants are great too, and you don't have to step foot out of the vehicle. After all that, a great way to wind down a car date is by going to a drive-in movie.

An entire evening can be planned around a car show. Walk around and try to identify the cars without looking at their place cards. If neither of you knows what the car is, ask the owner. Every owner at a show loves to talk about their car. Also, it's fun to go around and select what you consider your dream car. It will be neat to see if the two of you choose the same car. Bring your camera or phones to take pictures of the coolest cars and as many selfies as you can.

A deck of cards can provide endless hours of fun. Put away anything that distracts you and sit on the floor and play cards. It doesn't matter if you're playing a simple game like Go Fish or a complicated game like poker. If you're not familiar with many card games, search online and you'll find dozens with simple rules. It's not winning and losing that matters, it's the amount of fun that you have. Snacks and cold drinks add to the enjoyment of playing cards together. If you want to kick your hard game up a notch order a pizza or buy a frozen one at the store and turn it into a card and pizza party.

Your spouse knows you better than anyone else, and they might be able to point you in a direction that you were unable to go on your own.

You can take your caricature date a step further by finding a caricature artist at many large events to draw your pictures. During the summer months and when it's not cold outside, artists sometimes hang out at parks and draw caricatures of people for money. A professional can make you both look funny, and you'll have your caricature to remember your fun-filled park adventure.

The joy of Christmas is something that people can never get enough of. Caroling is a fun way to spread the holiday cheer that so many people desperately lack. You can either go caroling in your own neighborhood or visit friends and sing outside where they live. If you know other couples who are into caroling, you could turn it into a double or group date. After you're done caroling, go inside and warm your bones with a hot foot or drink. There's no better way to end your caroling date than with a cup of sweet, creamy hot chocolate and maybe a cookie or two.

A ride on a carousel never ends with just one go around. The two of you will enjoy yourself so much that you'll want to do it again and again. Take a ride on the carousel together, and then do it separately. Take pictures and make videos of each other on the carousel. It's hard not to have fun when you're doing something that instantly brings you back to your childhood. It won't be surprising if your carousel date ends up being something you do yearly.

Carving usually is done with wood, and it's something that everyone reading this can easily get their hands on. Carving is a skill that takes quite a bit of time to master, but anyone can pick up a piece of wood and begin to carve. A great way to turn carving into a date is by taking turns carving on the same wood piece. Also, one of you might enjoy painting or decorating the final product more than you do carving. A fun thing to do after your carving date is to give your artwork away as gifts. If you have several carving dates and you both get the skill down pat, you can sell your carvings on places like eBay or Etsy to make a little spending money for future dates.
