April Fools Day Ideas!

Looking for some April fool's ideas for your kids?! Here are a few ideas I've found. 

Serve ice cream first! It's really mashed potatoes and gravy!

Turn the facet water blue!

Want to put a fun card that doesn't open, in your child's lunch box!? Click here or here to download some!

Printable name tags and stickers for you or your children to wear! Click Here
to download some. 
Disclaimer: I don't really think they're all appropriate for kids to wear, so i'm not advocating all of them! I like the "I love homework", and "I like broccoli" stickers. 
Other ideas-
Wait until your kids fall asleep, then put everyone in a different bed! They'll wake up the next morning in someone else's bed and be confused! 

Set the clocks an hour early, after your kids go to sleep. Once they're dressed and ready for school, tell them its an hour early and take them out to breakfast! 

Serve colorful cupcakes for dinner! (surprise; they're really a muffin tin with meatloaf and mashed potatoes!)

The sink surprise! (I will NOT be doing this one! I dont think Edwin would laugh!) 

Let me know if you decide to try anything tomorrow! I'm not sure if or what I'm going to do, but I'll let you know if I decided to try anything!


  1. Those are all really fun ideas! I have never really done anything for April Fool's Day, but maybe this year will be the first!



  2. L.O.V.E. it - am a fan of BOTH your blogs!! :) can't wait to see more!

  3. What fun ideas!!! I was thinking of something a little more mean, I thought it would be great to super glue some quarters to the sidewalk, my kids love finding money! I would love to watch and laugh. My Mom always did fun and kind of mean April fool's day stuff.

    Cute blog and family!!!

  4. Haha I see that you're stealing ideas from Martha too!

  5. Hehe! I love that I got you! And hey, your links really worked! ;-)

    Happy April Fool's Day!
