Fun Food

The kids (for some reason this is how I refer to the two older kids; and for future reference, the two younger ones I call the little boys) were excited about April Fool's Day this year. So I thought I would have a little fun with them. Supper last night was unique.

actually my meatball recipe with colored mashed potatoes on top
three of them struggled with the mashed potatoes
jobe didn't seem to notice anything amiss...
until the jello in a cup
he couldn't figure out why nothing would come out

they didn't consider the cupcakes dessert

initially, jake wasn't so sure this was dessert either

brookelynn figured it out right away, though

ezra was just excited there was a gummy worm in the middle

So, before you think any of these ideas were orginal to me, let me give credit where credit is due: Family Fun. I no longer get the magazine, but I visit their website fairly frequently. I'm not creative. People like me need lots of help. This is the place to look.

You are such a fun mom!

I LOOOVE Family Fun magazine.
But I just get ideas from it.
I don't actually follow through on any of them. *sigh*

Fun ideas--hey, there's nothing new under the sun, girl! I'm discovering that we don't have to have new ideas to be fun moms!

I loved the mashed potato idea... actually I loved all of it. I might have to try it, sans the coloring of the potatoes.
