Has your dinner time become predictable… routine… boring? Once in a while it may be fun to change things up a bit and have a weekend dinner that is out of the ordinary. Here are a few suggestions for some creative mealtime experiences that involve more than pizza.
1. Backward Night: This is the night when you eat dessert first. Maybe you also come to the table wearing your clothes backwards.
2. Power Outage Night: After preparing dinner, go and flip the breaker so that the power goes out. Light candles and pretend that there is a power failure.
3. Neanderthal Night: This is a messy meal. No one uses utensils!
The family can all be involved in planning and preparing this meal. It can be a lot of fun deciding what Neanderthal people might have eaten and prepare this i.e. drumsticks, chicken wings etc.
4. Indoor Picnic: Spread out a blanket on the floor of the living room or family room and have your indoor picnic.
