Happy April Fools!

It’s that day where you watch every step you take – and stay on the lookout for friends, co-workers or family members’ practical jokes.  Instead of living on edge, embrace it! You are never too old to partake the silliness and plan out a few jokes that will send your kids into a fit of giggles.

Here are a few of our favorite pranks courtesy of Parenting.com.

Got (Blue) Milk? – Put a few drops of food coloring into the carton of milk. Don’t miss your older kids’ faces as they pour! Or, make sure you have the attention of the younger ones as you fix their morning bowl of cereal.

  • Backwards Dinner – Serve up a topsy-turvy dinner to throw your kids for a loop.  Example – Bake meatloaf in a 12-cup muffin tin and frost with mashed potatoes for a “cupcakes” dinner. Then,  toast strips of pound cake for a dessert to make “french fries.” Don’t forget your ketchup made of red frosting!
  • Chain Reaction – Sneak into someone’s drawer and safety pin all of the items together. When they pull an item out, everything comes out!
