Help me come up with some fun two-person hobbies that also can be productive or contribute to personal growth.

I love spending time with my partner. However, when we spend time together, we generally do completely recreational activities, like play video and board games or watch movies.
I'm getting tired of this pattern. I would like to fill this time with more productive hobbies that we can enjoy doing together. I want to spend time with her, while doing activities that contribute to personal growth, rather than feel like time sinks.
Some information on our interests: We're both a little crafty, she more than I. I am more musically inclined than she is, but she has shown interest in learning an instrument. We love the outdoors. Options for exercise would be nice, but there is a difference in our fitness levels (e.g., she likes walking, I like running), so some physical activity where people can work at different exertion levels would be ideal. Neither of us is interested in organized sports. More intellectual games might be welcome, but she didn't like the idea of learning chess when I brought it up the other day.
I'm open to all ideas.
