Date Night: GIF Activity

So many times we are trying to put away our electronic devices for date night! We do that, too! It's a major rule at our house. But every so often, it's fun to involve electronics in your date night. The other night I created this Gif Activity Date Night after having to search Gifs (something I'd actually never done because I'm actually 80) for a introductory video for my job. (If you're wondering, I chose this Gif and I at least know two people who will totally appreciate it).

Anyway, this at-home  date couldn't be more simple. You'll need:

-Two phones/tablets (one for each person)
-A timer
-Treats/Drinks
-A comfortable place to sit 
-This printable list of prompts

One partner reads the prompt and sets the timer (you can choose the time, we chose to limit to five minutes because you definitely can scroll through GIFs for days).

Each partner searches for a Gif that fits the prompt (some great GIFs search sites include Giphy, GifMe, and Reaction GIFs)

When the timer ends, share your Gifs and a good laugh/discussion

*A GIF that describes your spouse's philosophy on life
*A GIF that portrays your disagreements
*A GIF that reminds you of your honeymoon
*A GIF that reminds you of your spouse's job
*A GIF that reminds you of one of your in-laws  (add another element of fun by showing the GIF and seeing if your spouse can guess who it represents:)
*A GIF that reminds you of your feelings about your favorite restaurant
*A GIF that describes how you feel about your spouse
*A GIF that reminds you of your first date
*A GIF that reminds you of your friends or your spouse's friends (add another element of fun by showing the GIF and seeing if your spouse can guess who it represents:)
*A GIF that portrays your view of your sex life 

What are your plans for date night this week? Would you try this? If you do, I'd love to hear about it!
