I love celebrating random holidays like April Fool’s Day, because I take any chance I can to infuse a little fun into our daily family life. Last year, I borrowed a “for sale” sign from a realtor friend, and had a great time tricking my kids and neighbors that we were going to sell the house and move. Even more funny is that my brother-in-law thought it would be hysterical to then prank my realtor, and call her with an inquiry. Ha ha! It was great fun. I’ve made meatloaf cupcakes, peas out of starbursts, even got brown construction paper and cut out “E’s” for Brown-ies. I thought it would be fun to share 10 food ideas you can do this April Fools Day to have a little fun! Let me know in the comments your favorite…or one you think you might trick your family with!
