Being spontaneous with a bit of creativity adds to The Penny Date

These days a penny is not worth much, other than finding a lucky one on the ground heads up and picking it up. With so many cliché ideas for dates when you want to take someone out, The Penny Date is a perfect way to stir up creativity while being completely spontaneous, and best yet, it is really fun and interactive!

The idea is super simple! 1. Get dressed to go out and grab a penny, 2. Let the passenger choose a number between 10-20. This will be the number of times you flip the penny, 3. Pull out of the driveway and begin driving. Every time you come to an intersection, flip the penny and turn the corresponding direction. Heads is right. Tails is left.  5. Once you get to the number you previously chose at the beginning, stop. 6. Make a date wherever you just stopped.

Feel free to comment with your stories when you go on your penny date. We would love to hear about some of the fun you had!
