Date Night Jar

One of the hardest things for us is deciding what we should do for our date nights and we end up spending another night going out to dinner and coming home to watch a movie. So, I decided to make a date night jar.

Things You Will Need

Wooden Craft Sticks(Popsicle sticks)
Mason Jar
Fabric Flower
Paint or Stickers

1. Start by writing your date night ideas on the craft sticks. (Note: you may want to color code them based off of how long they may take i.e. a night vs a full day)
2. Then decorate your jar. I attached the fabric flower on the lid of the jar and tied ribbon around the top and finally painted "Date Nights."
3. Place sticks into jar and take turns grabbing one when your date night comes around.
