My favorite April Fool's Day was all the way back there in 2008. The big girls were old enough to get it. I pulled off the prank that will never be forgotten. You can read about it here. I am absolutely giddy thinking about next year. I am going to enlist the big girls in helping me recreate the prank for Bria and Jack. Wonder if they will see it coming? It's going to hard to top this reaction...
Last year, I opened a bag of Cheetos. I never buy Cheetos. It's apparently a problem for everyone else around here. I had snack sized bags of Cheetos, opened them and replaced them with carrot sticks. I used double stick tape and put the bags back together. Hanan, my nonvegetable eater, has really never forgiven me.
This year, I made faux grilled cheese sandwiches for their lunch box, as see in Family Fun. It's toasted pound cake and frosting to look like cheese.
I used the Sara Lee pound cake. The slices were too small. It didn't look this great. I figure have a cake sandwich in your lunchbox is joke enough.
I also made a big deal about looking for my double stick tape last night. This morning they noticed tamped Cheeto bags in their lunches again. The guessing game began as to what I put in the Cheeto bag. I left the Cheetos this year and slid in a Gotcha note. Again, they're at school. I have no pictures. I plan to hear about that there day for the rest of the year though and that's enough for me.
