My mom has a gift for many things. One of those things is coming up with creative ways to ask and answer to dances. And with four kids having gone through high school at a school where there is a dance every month, it sure came in handy!
Some of my favorite memories are when I found myself in the back seat of a car late a night ringing a door bell and running with a fun ask or answer to a dance. So today we’ll share with you 4 more ways to ask and answer to those fun dances coming up (we shared 3 ways earlier this year!) Keep in mind a lot of these can be used for both asking and answering by switching up the words.
Good luck! And run fast 🙂
This is super simple and cute. Find a spare tire and print off a sign to go with it. If you are feeling crafty, go ahead and make the sign a bit more exciting. Then be sure to print off a paper with your name on it and hide it somewhere in the tire for them to find out who it is!
Pretty adorable, right? This one takes a little more time than the tire, but is still pretty easy to do with some planning. If you have a heart shaped cake pan than use that. If not, don’t fear. I just used a circle pan and made a heart shape out of foil. Fill in the edges around the heart with foil to keep it secure. Then fill the heart space with saran wrap. After that, die some water red or pink and fill in the heart half way. Write your name on a piece of paper, wrap that in saran wrap, and stick in the half-full heart. Freeze for a couple hours. Pull it out and it should be frozen with the paper at the top. Fill up the rest of the heart with the rest of your red or pink water to cover up the paper. Freeze for a few more hours then you are good to go! (See pictures below) Then just print off something that says “Now that you’ve melted my heart, will you go to prom with me?” And maybe give them a hint to melt it 🙂
I love how simple this is. Just buy a bag or two of plain M&Ms at the store. Count out the red, yellow and green ones. Be sure to have your thinking cap on and count correctly so you give the right answer (aka have more greens than yellow or red). Make a sign to go with it and leave it at the door! Bonus for the person you are answering – they get a jar of M&Ms!
Last of all the penny jar! The cute penny poem will let them know that they can find a lucky penny with your answer on it in the jar. So be sure to write a “yes” on one of the pennies and fill up the jar!

So creative, Shari!
These are great! One that my roommates and I did in college was to unroll an entire roll of TP, then at the very end we wrote: “Will you be my Prince Charmin’ and go to Homecoming with me? [your name]” Then we rolled them all the way back up and delivered them. It was pretty awesome! The answer was fun, too. My date found these gigantic helium balloons somewhere and put them on a rope a couple hundred yards long, which he tied to the balcony railing in front of our apartment. I could see them walking home from several blocks away, and wondered what they were. Imagine my surprise when they were for me!
Ah, fun memories.
By the way, I used your Family Bingo sheet at our reunion this summer and it was a lot of fun! Thanks!
