3 Date Ideas for Creative Couples

For creative couples, going to dinner and a movie just is not going to cut it. Individuals who enjoy making something unique want to have fun together doing just that. Of course, the local newspaper is not exactly dripping with unique ideas for what to do on your date night. Worry not; we’ve put together three fun date ideas for creative couples.

1. Make a Movie

What could be as fun or creative as making your own movie? Thanks to the world of iMovie and similar mobile applications, you can create and edit your very own movie as part of your date night. Consider combining clips from your favorite videos to create a mash-up, or really let your imagination shine by plotting a story and using finger or hand puppets to act it out. This is a great idea if you want to make a short video for an upcoming birthday, greeting card, or holiday celebration. You will enjoy laughing and letting go for a while during the creative process and hopefully will have a killer ending video to show off to your friends.

2. Build a Fort

When was the last time you went on an adventure? Tap into your childhood imagination by building a fort in your living room with blankets and pillows. Of course, the fort-building methods have come a long way from when you were a kid. Check out Pinterest.com for some new ideas how to make your fort better than ever. One of my favorite ideas is to place a fan at one end of the fort to inflate the sheets and create airflow through the room. You can then play it old school by pretending the floor is made of lava, telling scary stories, or simply curling up and watching your favorite horror movies.

3. Take a Class

One of the most overlooked tools in your community is the access to non-credit courses at your local colleges. This is one of the best ways to enjoy a creative and budget-friendly date night. There are classes that last for one evening and those that continue for up to five weeks, once per week. Creative couples can take this opportunity to learn a new talent or skill. Classes range from learning a language or musical instrument to learning about photography and painting. There are even classes for types of dance, sewing, food art, and filmmaking. Depending on where you live, there may be even more unique classes available.

Remember that these classes are not drop-in. You have to sign up and pay in advance. Be sure that you can commit to all of the sessions so you are not wasting money. If something comes up, most universities will refund you up to the end of the first week of the class.
