So Friday night I was alone with the boys and we started talking about the month of April and that tomorrow was going to be April’s Fools day. They didn’t really know about it and how it was about playing tricks on people and fishies! We decided right then that we would celebrate ‘Fish Day’ on Saturday.
At 6:40 am the next day, we we’re busy tracing, cutting and drawing all kinds of fish. We made a mural with more than 40 fishes and made special ones for the people we love. Also found some fish t-shirt we already had and then we were ready for some food.
We made a cake and some individual fish pizza (themed pizza is my go-to food activity, I feel like we can make everything with a pizza and it’s always a hit)!
Then it was practice time, they had no clue how to stick a fish on other people’s back! It was so much fun watching them practice for the real thing… they just seem not to get that you had to be subtle when trying to stick the fish! After a while they got better, but once our family started to arrive, they were too shy to stick it to them! So I guess we have a bit more practice to do for next year.
So it was a spur of the moment kind-a-day and we had so much fun! Not everything needs to be planned ahead, make it happen and have fun. That’s what it’s all about anyway!
Have an awesome month of April and enjoy spring time!
