Easter is Also April Fool’s Day!
This Easter is different than most since it falls on the same date as April Fool’s, and parents are pretty excited about it! If you don’t already have some trickery up your sleeve, check out these ideas:
Unwrap small chocolate eggs and replace the chocolate with grapes.
Fill some plastic eggs with regular jellybeans, but use Jelly Belly BeanBoozled jellybeans for a few. They’ll cringe when they think they’re biting into a pina colada bean that tastes like stinky socks.
Put some strange things in their baskets like baked beans or toilet paper.
Or if you have older kids, fill their entire baskets with cleaning supplies. (give them their real baskets after the initial shock.)
For dessert after your Easter dinner, coat brussels sprouts in chocolate and put them on a stick. When your guests bite into these cake pops, be sure to snap photos of their faces!
