When my kids were younger I did this quite often. Now they are older it is not frequent but they are a creative bunch and with some modifications it can still happen.
When we did Ice Cream day- we inventoried all the Ice Cream in the house adn they made a big poster with what was available just like at the Ice Cream store. We made homemade ICe Cream and foam Magnet Ice Cream cones.

Oh and I remember Watermelon day too!!
Not every day is a theme day but now and then keeps you focused gives you something to plan and look forward to! Kinda like Field trip Friday- we are going somewhere near or far but always an adventure!
