Set up your cameras well so that you can see each other’s progress and give points accordingly. Whatever the results, sit down and enjoy the meal together. With a cook-off, you get to enjoy a special meal together as well.
4. Make a Craft Together

Since both of us are a little into drawing, sketching & painting, we once did a virtual sketching date. It was so much fun to share the continuous progress of the sketch and feel each other’s love through it.
If you’re not the one for drawings, you can also try your hands at some arts and crafts. To do it together, order two craft kits for your respective places. Also, you can decide on a particular craft kit and buy it from your location.
