Daddy M and myself have been together 10 years now. Where has that time gone? Long ago the dates disappeared especially after having the girls. Throw in no local family to babysit, our evenings (when Daddy isn't working) consists of sat in front of the TV working our way through yet another box set.
When the founders of Plan Our Date, (a new subscription service starting August 2016) asked if we would like to try one of their dates in a box I instantly said yes as I was very intrigued. Daddy knew nothing until it arrived!
When it arrived it really is a date in a box. Everything you need, bar a few basic ingredients is included in the box. This is the first ever box so we had no idea what to expect. Each month will be something different.
Our date box included:
- Instructions for how the date should go
- Who knows who" game with some prize cards
- A playlist to play via Spotify to help create the romantic scene
- Ingredients to make pancakes (apart from milk, egg and a little butter)
- A painting activity which came with two A5 canvases, 2 pencils, 2 paintbrushes and 10 acrylic paints
- A bag of skinny popcorn
- 2 teabags, some mini love hearts sweets and some chocolate mints too.
It is certainly very different from what we usually do for a date. So different that Daddy M wasn't keen on the painting idea, and with me following the Body Confidence Plan which means I'm dairy and gluten free I had to skip the pancakes too. Its not going well for us.
However, we decided to cook up the pancakes though and let the kids try it out. Not so "date" style, but still just as delicious. The ingredients come all weighed out so its literally the case of just emptying them out and following the instructions. Quick and simple. The syrup even came with the box too!
They went down well with the girls, and yes I did have a cheeky taste and they do taste so good!
Unfortunately I don't have pictures of our paintings but I do think it is a fab idea if both partners are up for trying something different. It is very random which makes it so intriguing.
