I don’t know about you, but once children are in the mix finding time to go on dates with your significant other can be a challenge. Even though getting out of the house together is much needed, sometimes that isn’t always the case (or an option). I think there are still many ways to connect and date at home if you can think outside of the box and be a little creative. Today I wanted to share five easy dates in the comfort of your home.
I will say that having a good routine in place with your children helps tremendously in allocating time together. Our son starts his bedtime routine around 6:20pm and is asleep around 7:00pm each night. This gives my husband and I a few hours to take advantage of before we generally go to sleep. You can check out my thoughts on routines here: Why I Value Routines and our toddler night time routine here: Toddler PM Routine.
We are obsessed with puzzles. It is something we can do together while talking and enjoying each other’s company. It is also a way to work together while completing a simple task.
2. Show Series
We love watching a series that we both enjoy! We look forward to each episode and get to make it a cozy night in. We recently watched all of Game of Thrones together.
We both enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. It can be so fun to make something together and is easy to do alone if your children have an earlier bedtime!
4. House Project
It is so exciting to work on house projects together whether it is painting a room, making a piece of furniture, or decorating a space. We both enjoy having a project and brainstorming/working together on it.
Working out together benefits everyone! We have completed different programs together at home, and it is fun to have an accountability partner and someone to share each workout with. We really enjoy yoga in the evenings to clear our minds before bed.
I would love to know what at home dates you enjoy!
