I'll tell you our plan, but change it to make it fun for your family: We are doing a pirate dinner, in preparation for D's upcoming pirate birthday party.
So I'll have pieces of fried chicken buried in a bowl of cooked noodles (plain) so they can search for their buried treasure.
We'll have slices of oranges as our "gold coins"
I also have a few cardboard tubes around the house that will be our telescopes, and we're planning a pirate hat craft for this afternoon.
Dig through your costume bin, and see what you have. Have a "Zoo Meal" Where everyone in your family has to dress up as an animal. Bring out your old makeup and let the kids decorate their faces.
Or a Princess Tea Party where you dress up in your prettiest dress, do your girls' hair, serve tea and little cakes, with tiny sandwiches.
Or a Monster Meal. You could dress up in creepy clothes, use makeup to decorate the face... use brussel sprouts in a cream sauce as "monster eyeballs" Or Decorate Cookies in the face of a monster for dessert. Kids have so much fun using their imagination, but I have to say... it's just as much fun as an adult :-)
Let me know what your family tries! I'll post pictures of our pirate dinner tomorrow! :-)
