I have talked a lot about adding variety to my days and how important it is for my sanity to break the monotony of everyday routines. One of the ways I hope to do that is by adding a theme night in at least once a month. The kids love them and it is a fun break from the normal.
Last month, we did a backwards dinner. It really doesn’t get much easier and you don’t need anything special. The kids wore their clothes backwards; I went with a backwards baseball cap since I am pretty sure my dress wasn’t going to work out well backwards.
We had dessert first — funnel cakes if you were wondering — followed by dinner. The funnel cakes certainly didn’t look like the fair’s, but they were certainly tasty! Such a simple concept, yet the kids are still talking about it!
I would love your suggestions for theme nights to try, or fun family activities that have worked well for you.
