IDIOM: "Turn that frown upside down":

An upside down frown would be a smile. This is largely a stand-alone phrase or whole sentence (complete thought) and can be used as you have typed it.

It is a phrase most commonly used with children to get them to smile when they are sad or angry over relatively minor issues but not commonly used with adults or for serious problems.

It means to smile. Often parents say this to little children who are sulking.
Example: "Come on cheer up. Turn your frown upside down and let's have fun."
