a little glue-as-milk-bowl-of-cheerios started the day.
the kids were so cranky and tired,
this was the one smiling moment of the morning.
then a fake ponytail and huge paperclip earrings to preschool
(some of you knew me back in the real ponytail days…
some little ones wished i looked this fancy all the time…oh well.)
then the making of fake ketchup spills,
dropped circle rings with fising line and
big foot pranks to send home to waiting families.
the anticipation in the preschoolers was wonderful.
then an “nice cold drink” at jenny’s which was really jell-o
(hilarious to watch them try to sip from the straw!)
funny, funny stuff, i tell you.
the best april fool’s joke yet.
i washed and filled a glue bottle with cream…then added it to my coffee while preschoolers were watching…hee hee hee.
in naomi’s lunch…an orange
…filled with orange candy.
micah informed me this morning (after a fake banana, colored cereal milk and pudding as milk) that he knew all of my ideas before i even did them.
i’ll stick to preschoolers then.
please, if you are out there and have april fools ideas, tell me.
i like having friends who call to say, “do you have green food coloring?…i need it to dye coconut to make pretend burgers…and i bought a lot of stuff so you can come make some if you want.”
hee hee hee
jello in a cup with a straw. sneaky.

then i turned our after school snack silly.
want some french fries?
oh, they don’t look cooked well enough?
well, that’s because they are apples peeled and cut to look like french fries and caramel dyed red.
it was good to see delight. and truly trick my kids.
stay tuned. hint: it involves rocks and cool whip.
