I have no idea where April Fool's Day originated from, or why it's on April 1 for that matter. And to be honest, I'm not much of a prankster.
However, last year I decided to go all out for April Fool's Day and boy, was it worth it. Let's just say I'm really glad I had the camera on me so I could record these priceless moments.
Here's a picture gallery with a couple of ideas from last year to get your creative juices flowing for the big day tomorrow. I laugh every time I see these pictures and I hope they bring a smile to your face too.
#2 (No Picture for this one) Pin their underwear together.
This is the joke that the kids loved playing on Mommy and Daddy several times over the past year. I have a feeling that if I don't do these tricks tomorrow they will be disappointed. They have talked about this day over and over again and laughed thinking back on it. I'm quite sure that tomorrow morning there will only be laughs and no tears. (Just do me a favor and don't remind my kids that tomorrow is April Fool's Day so that they will be completely surprised!)
(It was actually yogurt and canned peaches.)
This is one of the things I love about Motherhood. Creating memories with our children that will weave their hearts together with ours. The things we do for or with our children don't have to be outrageous or expensive. They just want YOU to have fun with them.
Have any more kid-friendly ideas for April Fool's Day? There's still time for me to put some more together so let me know your ideas in the comment section below. Thanks!
