For Christmas, I got my husband a very special gift that didn’t cost any money at all. My mother-in-law found my husband’s boyhood LEGO’s and I cleaned them up and regifted them to my husband for Christmas. He was so surprised and happy. I also bought him 2 new sets of Star Wars Legos. One of the “strings” attached to this gift is that he would play LEGO’s with me every once in awhile. We did a LEGO Date Night. If you don’t have LEGO’s of your own, borrow some from your kids or get some cheaply off of Craigslist.
LEGO Date Night Activities:
Build With Legos: My husband and I just thought up our own creations and began to build. It was so much fun!
Search Pinterest for something cool to build together. On my Pinterest account, I have a whole board dedicated to LEGO LOVE. People have designed and built some crazy things out of LEGO’s. Maybe as a team, you can come up a cool thing to build.
Make and race LEGO cars.
Make a LEGO marble run for each other to complete.
Build a LEGO catapult and see which one of you can hurl an object further.
Challenge each other to a LEGO spoon race!
Have a speed challenge. Set a timer for 5 or 10 minutes and see who can build the highest tower or weight carrying bridge.
Watch The LEGO Movie together!
Make a LEGO stop action movie together. Develop a background, characters, script, and take a bunch of photos.
I hope you have just as much fun on your LEGO date as I did on mine. Sometimes it is fun just to let loose and relive some of your childhood.
