Dear Pong DIY Date Night

A ping pong ball. Some plastic cups. Is this date night really what you think it is? Nope, it’s better! Give it a shot and get ready to learn new things about your spouse with this at-home, DIY date night!


1. Clear off your kitchen table or coffee table.

2. Set up 10 of the cups on one end in a triangle (like bowling pins) pointing toward the center of the table.

3. Mirror the same setup on the other end of the table.

4. Fill the cups halfway with water (or a liquid of your choice – no judgment here!)

5. Stand on one end of the table with your spouse at the other.

6. Take turns trying to bounce the ball into the set of cups in front of your spouse.

7. Whenever a ball makes it into a cup, the spouse who threw the ball gets to choose a “favor” for their spouse to do. (See list below!)

8. The spouse then does the favor, and removes the cup the ball landed in from his/her set of cups.

9. Continue playing until one set of cups is completely gone!
