April Fools!

The kids didn't get to have a 100th Day of School party on the actual day, so I told them we would do it for April Fools Day. Here are some pictures of our revelry! 


We started off the day with bacon and pancakes.



Then Jathan and I did a 100 number grid activity. This is his super happy face. Yes, he is a total goofball!


Next we all headed outside to hit the piñata. It wasn't the prettiest thing in the world but the kids loved it and miraculously it survived several hits from each of the kids!



After lunch we sang happy one hundredth day to you and ate cupcakes.


Next we used 100 toothpicks and 100 marshmallows to build with. 



Here Ryland and Piper are dividing their Fruit Loops up by colors into 10 groups of 10. Jathan ate a hundred fruit loops!


I had this worksheet for Jathan and Ryland to complete then Piper really, really wanted one. It was the first time she had actually listened to directions and colored! She didn't complete it but I was totally impressed.



Then last night we had fun with the low sticks from the piñata! Even the babies enjoyed hanging out in the dark with us. And Ryland made this 100 completely on his own having recognized this number from all our activities that day! 


It was a fun April Fools Day! We even played a *few* jokes on Daddy including hiding his root beer, stuffing the toes of his shoes, and coating the toothbrush with sticky toothpaste so it'd be gross when he grabbed it. I think he was glad when the day was over, ha ha! 

Did you do anything special for April Fools? Trick anyone?
