Date night, especially for married couples, isn’t just a weekly ritual that involves dining out and catching the latest blockbuster at the cinema. Date night can be enjoying a new activity and taking pleasure in the moment, such as relaxing in the bath tub. However, for couples who want to do more than just gaze at the stars or watch a DVD while taking a soothing dip in the hot tub, here are some fun tub games to try out:
Bet on Plastic Playing Cards
Who has the best poker face? Is canasta the card game that brought you closer? Use plastic playing cards while in the tub and bet on who will be cooking or paying for next week’s special date night dinner. Place a floating mat in the middle or place a waterproof side table for shuffling the cards. You can “go fish” or yell “Uno!” while cleansing and rejuvenating your body.
Hot Tub Charades
Charades in the hot tub is a lot more challenging as you won’t get to move around that much--and there lies the extra fun. You can even spice it up a bit by using a mobile app that displays a word that you have to guess by asking questions. Whether you want to play dumb charade or movie charades, playing it while in the tub enhances your bonding moments to be more memorable.
Boat Races and Battles
Instead of rubber duckies, bring plastic boats that you can race or enjoy boat water battles with. See whose boat can reach the other side of the tub first or who can get their opponent’s boat to capsize. Racing and battling boats are perfect for nights when you just want to destress and do something entertaining.
