In any case, we take April Fool's Day seriously around here so I thought I'd share what's planned for tomorrow. I don't know what I'd do if the first fell on a weekend. There is something great about packing a gag lunch and wondering all day how it went off. For Ava, we have packed an extremely small lunch for her. So small, in fact, it fits in a matchbox. See.
What you see: A cheese and lettuce sandwich, a carrot, a chopped raisin, and a piece of cake. This we packed in the matchbox, then put that in a small plastic container, then put that in a bigger plastic container, which finally ended up in her metal sandwich container. I think I'll put a bunch of empty containers in the bag to make it heavy. She, of course, is expecting something, but will love the itty bitty surprise.
Harry is only 4 and though he knows what happens on April 1st (Ava has briefed him), I am maybe a little concerned he will be confused by a trick. I am more concerned that he will feel left out of the fun, however, so a trick he will get. Here is his lunch.
Of course, he may just think he scored an awesome lunch.
Their teachers will be alerted and told where the actual to-be-eaten lunches are hidden.
