Feel Like a (Romantic) Kid Again

If the start of the school year makes you a little nostalgic about your own school days, why not take a little trip: back to your own childhood! Make a date with that special someone and act like children again. You'll soon see that this child-like fun can be just as romantic as a grown-up date (and a whole lot easier on the budget!)

Buy some bubble gum. Have a bubble blowing contest.

Buy your lover a stuffed animal and name it together.

Challenge each other to a pillow fight.

Compete in a video game.

Cuddle on a carousel.

Enjoy a one-day vacation doing activities you'd normal do with your kids, but this time only include each other. Visit a theme park or water park. Go to the zoo. Ride a miniature train.

Ride your partner's favorite ride at amusement parks.

Talk to each other in pig Latin.

Tell each other scary stories

Visit a playground. Swing and slide together.

Win your partner a prize at the arcade.

Write your names on a balloon and watch it drift off in the breeze.
