Invite Your Spouse to the Internet Scavenger Hunt
For a date that is technology involved, you won’t be surprised that our invitation for this date night includes your device! But don’t stress – you don’t have to be tech-savvy to send this little love note to your sweetie. Simply download the jpg file below and send it via email or text along with the details for your date.
This date night is seriously so easy to do. Start by printing off one (or all) of the internet scavenger hunt checklists. There are four completely different lists, all with a different theme. With four different lists this will likely take you several date nights to complete. Each list has ten unique things to find or complete all with a different theme. These include:
- Dream It – In this hunt, you and your spouse will search websites to find and show each other items and experiences you someday hope to have or do. This is a great way to get to know each other and maybe even make some goals for the future!
- Do It – This hunt is the most interactive. The list includes tasks to complete together. Some are silly, some are educational but all of them include doing something together.
- Find It – This internet scavenger hunt will require a lot of googling! You have a list of 10 things that you need to find and share with your spouse. You will be surprised what you find out.
- Map It – This might be my personal favorite. Using a lot of google maps and google earth, you and your spouse can virtually discover places from your own front yard to around the world.
To do the hunt, simply take your list and your preferred electronic device and start searching! You can decide if you want to each find the items and then share them with each other OR if you prefer to divide up the list. You can do either option.
- Take your time. This isn’t so much of a race, but an activity. Find the items on your list and take time to really look at it carefully and have fun exploring.
- Encourage conversation. Really take time to talk about the items that you find. More than just checking off a list, this date night is all about bonding with your sweetie.
- Add some treats. To make this date night even more special consider adding some favorite snacks and treats. That is always a win for date night!
- Having a prize for when you finish a list is definitely recommended! A little motivation is always fun and it can range from silly to sexy—you decide!
