Date Night Challenge: 50 Things We're Grateful For
The concept of Hygge is built around being grateful for and appreciating the small things in life that make us feel warm and at home. So to illustrate that, here's spin on classic game you might have played as a kid.
Take a piece of blank printer paper and make an 8x8 dot grid. Have you each grab a pen or pencil and choose one person to go first.
The objective of the game is to collect more boxes than your partner. You move by connecting two dots with a line. When you draw the last "wall" of the box, the box is yours. Your partner must then write one thing about you they are grateful for somewhere on the paper using five words or less. You may only draw one line per turn.
Once all boxes have been taken, the person with the most boxes wins! For the 50th reason, write something you both are grateful for in your relationship.
