If the start of the school year makes you a little nostalgic about your own school days, why not take a little trip: back to your own childhood! Make a date with that special someone and act like children again. You’ll soon see that this child-like fun can be just as romantic as a grown-up date (and a whole lot easier on the budget!)

Buy your lover a stuffed animal and name it together.
Challenge each other to a pillow fight.
Compete in a video game.
Cuddle on a carousel.

Ride your partner’s favorite ride at amusement parks.
Talk to each other in pig Latin.
Tell each other scary stories
Visit a playground. Swing and slide together.
Win your partner a prize at the arcade.
