Toddler Friendly April Fool’s Day

Those of you who know me in real life know that I once lived (and attended public schools) in France. French public schools can be a bit austere (at least they were a couple decades ago), but April 1st – Poisson D’avril  - was always a fun day.

Poisson D’avril means “April Fish”, and the traditional prank for this day is to tape paper fish to your friend’s back without their noticing. Then you yell, “Poisson D’avril!” and your friend spends the rest of the day trying to get you back. It’s the sort of humor that young children adore, so spend some time today with your kids making paper fish and let them see how often they can put a fish on your back without your noticing :)
