Whether we know it or not, we all have some creativity in us and letting it out is not only healthy but very fun. If you want to have a wonderful date, have fun and take away the stress of the week then prepare your colored pencils and painting brushes for an artistic appointment.
You can get an adult coloring book with mandala designs for a relaxing time, or with a couple of brushes and watercolors you can paint a masterpiece together. You could even cut out flashy images from old magazines and paste them on a sheet of paper to create a fun scrapbook sheet. Don't forget to turn on the music for a boost of inspiration.
