50 (or so) Date Ideas

Date night ideas, popsicle stick jar



We are BORED! Bored out of our minds. Bored with ourselves, bored with our stuff, bored with our house, bored with our day-to-day lives. Just plain bored. It’s about time to spice things up around here. We want more time with each other, more time without stuff, more time away from the house, more excitement and creativity. I found an idea on Pinterest (regretfully I forgot to pin it and have no link) to fill a jar with popsicles sticks each with a date idea written on it. We went ahead and gave it a try.

First we gathered our supplies:

multi-colored popsicle sticks, thin point Sharpies, two plastic bags (one for new ideas and one for used ideas), and sustenance


We assigned the colors of the popsicle sticks as follows:

  • Red = Things to do at home
  • Yellow = Free things
  • Green = $
  • Blue = $$$

We then started brainstorming ideas and writing them down, some examples are listed here:

  • Go to the local art museum
  • Take a brewery tour
  • Write a novel
  • Buy coloring books and color in them
  • Make a home video
  • Rent a hotel room for the night
  • etc.

Originally we were going to use bags but I found this jar in my cabinet so the new ideas were placed in it when completed (used ideas still go in a little bag).

We didn’t fill in all of the popsicle sticks so we made one that says simple “Make new popsicle sticks.”
