I found this really fantastic site-- and these women have some great date ideas-- with tons of FREE printables and things to use. Click here to check it out!
I have taken a few of their ideas and morphed them into my own. Here is one date I took Jake on a few weeks ago-- I started out by making scavenger hunt cards, and then I printed out the cards, glued them on scrapbook paper, and made sure I had everything ready. I gave him the cards and we ended up going to a National Park and hiking/picnicking. It was fun! Click on the first picture to download the cards on Google Docs:
So I decided to make my own version! First, I went to Walmart-- I couldn't find a lone mason jar (but I know you can find them in thrift stores), so I bought a small glass canister instead. Then I found cheap plastic golf balls in the sporting goods section. I finished up by purchasing a lime green sponge and small notebook.
When I got home I cut up the sponge to fit the bottom of the jar (fake grass), made a flag from a toothpick, painted 2 of the golf balls with acrylic paint (our favorite colors), cut a pencil down to size (you know they always give the tiniest pencils on mini golf courses), and also cut the notebook down to size. That is probably where a mason jar would've been a better choice. I put everything in the canister.
