Tired of the same old date routine… Dinner, movie, bowling alley? Here are some fun things you can do in your area that you probably never thought of! Whether you’re spending the day with someone special, or your best friends, there is something for everyone!
Take a hike with a picnic basket in a local state park. Most parks have beautiful scenic overlooks perfect for an afternoon lunch
Download the geocaching app- it is a real life scavenger hunt in cities all over the country! Follow clues to find caches. Most have a trinket left by the previous hunter and you can leave your own for someone else to find!
Attend a painting class! Most towns have a small art studio that hosts painting classes for beginners. Some schools even have them in their student unions!
Attend a cooking class. Some grocery stores have a cooking studio where you can attend a low cost cooking class.
What does every parent love to get during the holidays? Why, photos of their family of course! In a few easy steps, you can take a standard photograph and have a beautiful personalized drink coaster for every member of your family! This thoughtful, homemade gift can cost as little as $5 to make, so it certainly will not break the bank!
4 small tiles (purchased at a home improvement store in the bath section)
Modge Podge glue
Printed photos (on copy paper from your home printer)
Step 1: measure your tile and print the photographs so that they are only slightly larger than the tile. Print.
Step 2: Cut the photo out and coat the back of the photo with Modge Podge using the paintbrush
Step 3: Place the photo on the tile and weigh it down with a large book to set. Leave until the Modge Podge has dried. Preferably overnight.
Step 4: trim the edges (sand if needed) and brush the while tile with another coat of Modge Podge. Allow to dry and voila!
