Upside Down and Backwards
Contributed by The Family Dinner Project Team
Start a breakfast or dinner tradition around the theme of upside down and backwards! Maybe it’s once a month—or once a year—but pull out all the stops. Have breakfast for dinner: Dress in your favorite pajamas and eat pancakes, cereal or eggs. Invite friends, or the stuffed animals. Or try dinner for breakfast! Cold pizza anyone? Or if you’re feeling really crazy, an occasional dessert-before dinner-evening (say an ice cream appetizer?) never hurt anyone. You can also think of other activities that might go along with an upside-down tradition, like reading bedtime stories at breakfast or having dinner in bed. It’s your family’s tradition, so get as kooky as you want!
