April Fool's Day Fun- At School

I decided to "fool" my kids while at school- by switching up their food in their lunches.After they had gone to bed- I printed these "Donut Seeds Packets" off the Internet (Family Fun Mag) and I put Cheerios inside. ( I didn't have frosted Cheerios) Very easy to do..
Next I wrapped up their sandwiches and put them in foil and then used double stick tape to put the "label" on the bag. (Labels from Family Fun as Well)

I then placed the bags in an empty popcorn box.

I turned an Animal Cracker box upside down and opened it carefully...

Poured out all the crackers and...

put in Banana Chips.

Took my double stick tape and closed it right back up.

Hummm- good as new!

Then I did the same thing to their chip bags...

Poured out chips-cleaned, washed, and dried the inside.

Then put fluffy bunny marshmallows inside!

I bought Dr. Pepper jelly Beans-and opened the first bottle-(but used an Exacto knife to open the second bottle) poured out jelly beans

and put dark Plum Sweets-one by one- in the bottles. Took For-ev-er.

I took scotch tape and wrapped it around the lid, then took my embossing heat gun and "shrunk" it on the lid-can't even tell it was opened! Ta DA!

For my unsuspecting husband-I opened the apple chips bag ( from the bottom) and replaced the chips with the Maui Onion chips.

Then, very late at night, I went to bed. The kids were very surprised. I was the only mom who packed a trick lunch and all the kids kept saying "Open that bag!, "See what's in that one!" They loved it!
They couldn't figure out how I did the bottles, or the boxes that were glued on top. Lily thought I had bought special "April Fools Day " food.
Unfortunately I forgot to send "real food" so they were both hungry after school.

The best thing was my husband didn't get I had switched the chips! He told me ( and I quote) " Don't buy those apple chips any more -its a waste of money because they taste just like NORMAL potato chips" Ha ha I fooled him! Yes! I made a pretend dinner and some crayons for Sawyer. I'll post those as well.

Merry Christmas! Val
