20 At Home Date Night Ideas

Having the kids’ home all day, along with navigating our new homeschooling and virtual schooling routines can be stressful, to put it lightly. Luckily, there are lots of ideas shared in our community to make the day fun, entertaining, and productive. (And thank heavens for funny memes!) After the kids are sleeping, make sure to still take time for you and your significant other. Here are 20 fun ideas to beat boredom and spend quality time together at home once the kids are in bed.

20 At Home Date Night Ideas

1. Turn the kid’s daytime fort/tent into a date night oasis. Add lights, lanterns, candles, pillows, blankets apps and drinks.
 
2. Have a wine or beer tasting.  Many restaurants offering wine/beer to go. Check out options here.
 
3. Make a bucket list for projects you want to complete over the year or activities you want to do as a family.
 
4. Have a romantic dessert night. Break out that fondue pot you received as a wedding gift and may not have used yet. (You know it’s true!) Try this chocolate fondue recipe!
