a is for april fool’s day round up

well, we’ll be a couple of days late, but we’ll still do some of these tried and true pranks:


a little glue-as-milk-bowl-of-cheerios started the day.

then a fake ponytail and huge paperclip earrings to preschool


there were bologna and peas waiting at the play-doh table (funny).

the letter of the week turned back to A (funny).

the calendar and the music said it was christmas again (funny).

the paint was edible (but i didn’t tell them that at first. instead i pretended the only funny thing was that we were going to finger paint. then i suddenly licked the paint! oh, wide eyes).

there were fake moustaches (funny)…really these are just strips of fake fur with a roll of masking tape.

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.

drinking glue?


jello in a cup with a straw.  sneaky.

then i turned our 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.

well, friends, it’s nice that corey brought us grilled cheese sandwiches for snack today.  i’m sorry that all our cups are missing so i guess you’ll just have to have glue to drink.  april fools!  it’s milk-NOT glue!
