If you are a reader of my Evanisms page you will have seen what a little jokester Evan was on this past Sunday, which was April Fool’s Day. Being the diligent Grandma that I am I decided to have a little April Fool’s fun of my own.
I found a post on one of the Mom blog’s that I follow- Money Saving Mom for a little April Fool’s present. The print out was to make a package of “donut seeds”. There was a pdf link to print out the package and then glue it together, and in the package you place your favorite Cheerios, these are the donut seeds!! I knew this would be a great little April fool’s for Evan once I saw it.
Here’s a picture of the package I gave to Evan. I waited until we were done eating breakfast to give it to him. I said, “Evan, I got you something to plant outside.” Evans says, “Really Grandma what is it?” I hand him the little “seed” package, and tell him its “seeds” to grow his own donuts. Everyone else at the breakfast table is talking this up, and excited for Evan. Evan takes the packet, and reads a little bit of it and then opens it to look at the “seeds”. Evan says, “Grandma, this is just Cheerios.” And I smile and pause, and tell Evan, “April Fool’s, I got you!!”
It was a fun way to start the day, especially when Evan got in the spirit of the little jokes all on his own. Happy April everyone. Wishing you all a wonderful Spring!
What a cute idea
