April Fool's Day!

April Fool's Day is Wednesday and I've been looking for some cute, harmless ideas for the day. In the past, I've just done little things like switch the cereal bags into different boxes but I know my girls would just love to make a day of it :)

I'm definitely doing this for breakfast-easy and quick for the morning-just what I need!!! It reminds me of the after school St. Patrick's Day pudding snack from JesseKate Designs that my girls loved and still talk about!

These riddles will be cute for the girls' lunches.

This looks cute for an after school snack but this one is also adorable! Served with this drink would be so fun.

Dinner is going to be Colorful Cupcakes with Shamburgers for dessert.

All of this looks pretty easy and not too complicated-always key when you're not sure what's going to happen during the day.

Here are some other ideas for April Fool from Family Fun. I'm liking that messy room sign for my daughter's room :)

Here's our meal plan for the week-I totally missed it last week. I had it in my head but never posted it. Meal time is a bit crazy this time of the year with spring soccer and softball in addition to our other stuff. That's the big plus to meal planning though, I sit down ahead of time, check what we have for the day and plan around it.

Monday Roast chicken, broccoli rice, green beans
Tuesday Spaghetti and Meatballs
Wednesday April Fool's Day Colorful Cupcakes and Shamburgers (see above for links to recipes)
Thursday Chicken Cordon Bleu
Friday Fish, potatoes for younger girls and hubby, my oldest daughter and myself are doing the Relay for Life at our high school (we only go until 10:00 pm with the 4th, 5th, 6th grade).

Check out orgjunkie for more great recipes and ideas.

Have a great day and I'd love to hear if you have any other fun April Fool's Day ideas!
