DIY Date Night Jar for 100 Great Dates


Those of you familiar with Pinterest you may have seen this pop up on your feed. If so, then you are aware of this DIY project. I recreated this DIY Date Night Jar for my husband and I.  If you are anything like us, then finding activities that both you and your partner enjoy can become daunting, and sometimes the easiest thing to do is dinner and a movie (Classic). Nevertheless, the repetitive dinner and a movie can become somewhat boring. So if you are looking to get creative with your spouse or significant other then check out this cool project that I made. I have added 100 Date Night Activities that I think you both will enjoy. Remember to throw in some activities that you all like as well. Lets get started:

With this DIY Project you will need the following:
1) Mason Jar ( I just used one from my house) – More mason jar ideas.
2) Popsicle Sticks ( I suggest the ones from the Dollar Tree)
3) Chalkboard Stickers (Michaels or JoAnn’s Fabric) have them
4) Paint Pens (Michaels, JoAnns or Walmart) have them
I went ahead and chose a label to use for my mason jar. Then I used my paint pens to create the title for my jar. I suggest testing your paint pens out on a piece of paper prior as they tend to leak. After creating the label use a permanent marker to write out all the activities you want to engage in with your partner on your Popsicle sticks. See all 100 below. Remember to color code them so you can identify which Popsicle sticks are in which categories.
