Ha! It’s almost April Fool’s Day–the silliest holiday in the history of holidays. I’ve got something super up my sleeve for the big day this week, but until then, here are a few tricky-trickster ideas that may get everyone in your house smiling. . .
- April Fools’ Eggs and Bacon: If eggs and bacon are your thing and you’ve got the itch to trick your kiddos at breakfast this week, then this one’s for you.
It was a total hit when I sprung it on Maddy, Owen, and Cora last year, so it’s going to take a whole lot to top it this year. But I think I have an idea! (Read Friday to find out!)
Cora tries to figure it out. . .
- Candy Sushi: You totally can’t go wrong if you put this ‘sushi’ in front of your little ones this week–not only is it beautiful, but it’s sweet, too!
An absolutely perfect idea for April Fool’s Day, I think Candy Sushi, especially packed in a lunchbox–will be a super trick.
Add some little red fish to the mix for some ‘sashimi’ and it’s a win!
Candy sushi is our favorite snack–April Fool’s Day or not!
- Googly-Eyes, Googly-Eyes: My kids are not fans of googly eyes, by any means. I think I totally overdid myself last Halloween when I put little eyes on everything.
For some reason, though, they just make me laugh. Hard.
Especially when there’s a pair staring back at me from something totally random like a pencil sharpener, the cabinet, or Maddy’s Spelling Notebook.
Something’s definitely wrong with me.
But I just may bring the ole googles out for April Fool’s, just to get a laugh–or a surprised scream!– from Maddy, Owen, and Cora. . .
Boo! Googly eyes on anything makes me laugh–
- Squid Dogs: I cannot even bring myself to share a picture of these because looking at them still makes me gag.
(Well, okay. I will share a picture–but it’s going to be very, very, very, very small.)
But these Squid Dogs were intended to be silly–and tasty–but instead they turned into one big whopper of a flop. Check them out if you dare, but be forewarned: even if your kids love hotdogs and pasta, pairing the two for dinner is just. plain. strange.
Do you have anything planned for April Fool’s Day?

thanks, my friend!!
April fools is one of my favorite days! One year i froze their cereal and last year I did jello juice! This year I’m planning major trickery! I think the kids are planning some too so I’d better be on my toes on Friday! Familyfun has tons of ideas of course!
oh my gosh, DANA!! Jello juice? Frozen cereal??? Totally doing it.
one year my husand and I put small dog biscuits in pancakes as they cooked on the griddle. Kids had no idea they were there until they tried to cut into them. Of course we stopped them before they ate them!
WOW!! That’s one for next year…but that is SO funny!! Thanks for sharing!
