My seven year old woke up this morning and the first thing she did was pull out some of her prank toys (her favorite is the old nail through the finger trick). When I looked confused, she returned my expression with a look that said you’ve got to be kidding me, woman! “Mom! It’s April Fool’s Day!” she said, exasperated. “I have to trick my friends.”
I never really got into the whole April Fool’s Day thing, but this kid has always loved the idea of it. That said, I do love a good gag gift. And gag gifts work all year round. Not just on one day that I always manage to forget.
So I hunted around for some silly gifts to keep in my arsenal of ideas for upcoming birthdays and other special occasions. Take a peek.
