You can take your s'mores inside or enjoy them while out in the open fresh air. Anytime is a good time to whip up a batch of s'mores and turn it into a delicious date.

A box of chocolates is more than a great gift; it's a fun-filled date suggestion as well. A box of chocolates has all kinds of great things in them. The most fun thing to do is to bite the chocolates in half and share them. The two of you can comment on which chocolates that you like the best. One of you will more than likely favor fruity or soft chocolates while the other likes the ones with nuts in them. Either way, it's fun to sample the chocolates and to comment about which ones you like best. It will be surprising to see which ones you agree on that are the best and which you disagree about.

A day at the beach making sandcastles is as much fun as it sounds. Bring along a few little shovels, some containers, and whatever else that you need to make sandcastles. If you really want to go out of your way and turn it into a fantastic date, take lunch with you and eat it on the beach. Make it more fun by seeing how elaborate you can build your sandcastles. Collaborate or compete to make it fabulous. After your sandcastles are complete, then go for a dip in the water and enjoy yourself. The perfect way to end a date under the sun and in the sand is with the two of you swimming and having a ton of fun in the water.

The trick to turning a scavenger hunt into a date is making a list before you go out. The list that you create should have quite a few hard to find items on it. You can turn to the internet to find a list, and that might be the best option. The goal here is to locate hard to find items that will take you some time. The fun is working hard to find the items and where the journey leads you. Try to come up with items that will be hard to find that will require teamwork to pull it off. The more you have to rely on each other, the more the two of you will enjoy it.

These days it's super easy to rent electric bikes and scooters. You probably know several areas in your community where scooters and bikes are waiting for people to rent them. Renting the electronic devices tends to be fairly easy and inexpensive as well. You can rent them by the hour or by the day, but it's best to check with the rental company if you have any questions about how much it costs. A date on a scooter or electric bike could be just going for a ride, or you could turn it into a whole day affair. The great thing about renting the scooters or bikes is, you can leave them almost anywhere you want. You don't have to take them back where you got them, and that opens the door for even more date possibilities.
If you've been married for any length of time, then scrapbooking is a total blast. It's like walking down memory lane and reliving all of your favorite moments together. Sometimes it's good to sit and think back to all the fun that the two of you had. Don't just go through the motions, and build your scrapbook, talk about what happened in the pictures. Relive your most wonderful moments by looking at the photos you took during those times. It's as much of a celebration of the life that the two of you have shared as much as it is enjoying the moment that the photo was taken during.
Studying scripture is one of the most important things you can do if you're religious. It's your duty to study the scriptures, and they bring you closer to God. A great date idea is to sit down and take turns reading the scriptures together. You can take turns after reading the scriptures out loud and discuss what you think they mean. Reading God's word is a vital part of your walk-in life, and it's so crucial that your spouse shares it with you. Bond together, get closer to the Lord and allow yourselves to grow in the spirit of God by reading scriptures together.

Seminars and lectures might sound dry and dull, but it all depends on the subject! You might find a lecture at your local college about a topic that you and your spouse really enjoy. Churches often have guest speakers who give seminars free of charge that can be quite helpful in your spiritual growth.

Even small tasks like doing laundry, raking leaves, or sitting down and talking to someone can significantly impact their life.
A date of sewing may not be what it seems at first. You can sew things such as homemade teddy bears and give them to charity. You can obviously turn mending your clothes into a great cost-saving date. You can buy patterns and material to make almost anything on your sewing date. If you don't have a sewing machine, don't sweat it, sewing is something you can also do by hand. You might find that sewing together not using a machine is a much more enjoyable date. If you're new to sewing, it's best to buy a couple of thimbles to save your fingers from getting poked. You don't want your fingers to turn into a pin cushion during your date!
Fossil hunting is like going back in time and piecing together what life was like long before you were here. Do a little research beforehand to know what type of fossils you should expect in your area. If you can, travel to an area well known for having fossils. Digging up the fossils is only half the fun because you've got to identify what you dug up. The first thing you do is try to determine what part of the animal you discovered. After that, then you move on to trying to figure out what animal the bones came from. The exciting thing is, you might be holding onto the bones of a dinosaur that hasn't seen the light of day for millions of years.
