April Fools Day Ideas…

Friday is April Fools Day…  Here is my 2010 post with some ideas + one I added for a new spin…

Have you fooled your kiddos today?

It’s pretty hard for a four year old to understand the concept of April Fools…  But my seven year old gets it and I had a good time last year playing a few tricks on him.  I started by putting a fork in his cereal bowl!  I layed out pj’s for him to put on for the day.   At dinner we had breakfast.  At bedtime I put princess sheets on his bed and Star Wars sheets on my daughters bed. 

This year, I have plans for a gag lunch!  I already started by setting the clock back an hour so he was in bed at 7:30 rather than 8:30.  I will fill him in on the prank when he wakes up pm April Fools. 

Check out these donut seeds:

Plant them and maybe you will get this…

Small April sobbed I’m going to cry
Please give me a cloud to wipe my eye
Then April Fool she laughed instead
And smiled a rainbow overhead.


Q: Why are people so tired on April 1st?
A: Because they just finished a 31-day March 🙂


If it thunders on All Fool’s Day,
expect good crops of corn and hay.
