Now and Laters
Get a little physical with your spouse playing this sweet game. Pick up a few packs of individually wrapped Now and Laters®. Stash them around the house for your spouse to find. Instruct them that every time they find one to let you know. When they do, they get a 60-second hug or kiss now AND 60 seconds toward a massage or other agreed upon activity later when they “cash in” their candy.
