prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie

funny april fool’s day

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.
no foolin’.

april fools day cheerios and glue

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.
no foolin’.

    We have had so so many ketchup spills at our house today. The best was the one on my laptop keyboard. What cute ideas you had – and can I tell you how much M loves yanking that disc away from me? So fun.

    Those are all such funny, funny things. You are a clever one miss kristin!!
    I’ve got to say April fools has never been my thing but next year I think I might need to steal a bunch of these ideas for our own entertainment!

    How do you do the ketchup spills? My kids are old enough to be expecting something on that day; maybe I could do it a few days from now!
