Best of the Middle Grade Blogs: April 1

Happy April Fools Day. This is my one of my favorite holidays. I have a bunch of pranks planned for today. A classic, that my children look forward to even though they're being pranked, is lunch:
  • I scooped out all the jello from their snack cups and replaced it with red wine vinegar infused cyrstal light jello. Then I glued the seal back on.
  • Cheeto bags filled with carrot sticks. (They might cry about this one.)
  • A water bottle with baby abesol smear around the rim.
  • And a cupcake with a small burst of toothpaste in the middle.
Are you playing any pranks today?

  1. Wow - those pranks sound awesome! My 11-year-old unplugged my computer mouse AND put a small piece of tape on the bottom so it wouldn't work. I should've known she was up to something when I didn't have to badger her to get off the computer!

    Thanks for the links (and the mentions)! I love finding new MG blogs to follow.

  2. Thanks for including my round-up! And for other great links I missed last week...

  3. Thanks for the shout-out, Brooke! :-)

  4. I love that you do these. There are a couple links I need to go check out!
