Livin-April Fools Day
Here are a few fun ideas and tricks to play on your kiddos. Have fun! Kamea has been working on her master plan for a month now.
Whose Drawers are in My Drawer? – Switch out the underwear drawer for each of your kids or replace theirs with adult underwear.
Happy Birthday April Fools’ Day to You –
Act like it’s your child’s birthday. You could put up a banner and some
balloons and give him a muffin with a candle in the middle for
breakfast. Then sing, “Happy April Fools’ Day to you…” This is only
funny, of course, if your child’s birthday isn’t April 1.
Veggie Chips – Carefully open the bottom of a
single-serving chips bag, dump out the chips, and replace them with baby
carrots. Reseal the bottom of the bag with double-sided tape. Your
child will be surprised to find carrots instead of chips in the bag at
Funny Talk – Talk to your child all day (or for as
long as you can keep it up) in rhyme, Pig Latin, or Shakespearean
English. If you want to take it a step further, dress the part, too.
Short Shoeing – Stuff the inside tips of your
children’s shoes with toilet paper, tissues, or cotton balls. They will
wonder why their shoes suddenly don’t fit.
The Breakfast Bowl Shuffle – Move things around in
the kitchen: Put the cereal where the bowls should be, cups in the
silverware drawer, etc. You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you
Backwards Day – Put your clothes on backwards and
act completely normal. You might even want to insist that your kids go
put their clothes on “properly.”
Li’l Lunch – Pack your school-age children’s lunch
with toddler food and a sippy cup. If you’re worried they won’t eat the
toddler food, pack their regular lunch in toddler food packaging.The
sippy cup is a must, of course.
Soil Test – Make a dirt dessert (minus
the gummy worms) and place it in a small, clean planter. Ask your kids
to help you plant some sunflower seeds, and tell them the soil has to be
tested to make sure the seeds will grow. Explain that the way to test
the soil is by eating it, then grab some from the top and pop it in your
mouth. Insist that they try at least a tiny taste. Once they know it is
actually Oreos and pudding, serve up the dirt dessert.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand “April Fools” – Change
the background photo on your teen’s or tween’s computer, phone, iPad,
or other device to something mortifying. The photo could be of you and
your spouse smooching, your kid as a naked baby, a photo of them
sleeping; you get the picture.
