Spread out a blanket on the living-room floor, pack a basket, and "rough it" at your make-believe campsite.
Fabulous fridge burritos
Is your refrigerator full of leftovers? Put them all out on the table, give everyone a tortilla, and let them wrap up their own creations.
Breakfast at bedtime
Flip your day around, and have pancakes, eggs, and orange juice for dinner.
Use your kids' favorite flick for inspiration--make Lady and the Tramp spaghetti or Finding Nemo fish sticks.
Play a game. Whoever gets the bay leaf in the pasta sauce doesn't have to help clear the table, or the person who gets the hamburger with a pickle on it gets an extra dessert.
