April Fools Day Breakfast

This year, my oldest daughter has been talking NON-STOP about April Fool's Day! She keeps trying to come up with little tricks we can play on Daddy...she has come up with some pretty good ones :) I knew if I didn't do anything to make the day fun she might be a little disappointed, so I threw together this little joke to brighten my kids' day.

I actually got this idea at Christmas time when I saw ALL the Elf on the Shelp ideas floating around Pinterest. I just LOVED the elf donuts they made out of Cheerios...and promised myself I would remember it for April Fool's Day!



I am SO excited for Sunday morning so I can present my kids with their sweet, delicious, mouth-watering breakfast!! :)

To make this for your kids all you need are some Cheerios, frosting, little sprinkles and a toothpick box.



I just (pain-stakingly!) frosted each Cheerio and then topped with sprinkles. Then I painted the outside of a toothpick box blue and our April Fool's Day breakfast is ready to go!


And don't worry...just in case my kids don't think its QUITE as funny as I do...I will have a half-dozen Krispy Kreme's hiding in the pantry ;)

I would LOVE to know what fun, (relatively) nice pranks you do in your family for April Fool's Day! Share away and have a great day!

Linking up HERE!

Oh my cuteness! My mom-in-law has passed on the tradition of serving 'bacon' aka dog begging strips with breakfast. These 'donuts' are perfect to change things up a bit. Looks like the joke's on her this year. Yes!!!
