Who doesn’t love a laugh? April Fool’s Day, April 1st, is the perfect day to revel in the silliness of life. My 6 year old is particularly keen on the idea of April Fools, and any chance he can get to “trick his Daddy.”  So last year we fooled him pretty good with a Brown-E Surprise.  My son had a lot of fun with the whole thing: the planning, execution, and of course the joyous reveling.  Plus, it was a good chance for him to practice his scissor skills (aka – Mom approved)!  It’s a super easy activity that will fool your favorite chocolate lover in a snap.

Here’s what you need:

  • A stack of brown construction paper 
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Brownie Pan
  • Tin Foil

It works best if you create an “E” pattern first.  Create your own or check Google Images for “letter E pattern”. Trace as many of the “E’s” as you plan to use on the construction paper with the marker. Then ask your helper to cut out the “E’s”.

Place the “Brown-E’s” in a baking pan; the same you usually use for baking brownies. Then cover with “peek proof” aluminum foil.

Finally, set the pan on the counter and lure your unsuspecting “fool” into the plot and have fun! Don’t forget to say..

April Fool’s!

      Real brownies are a very nice way to soften the blow! Plus you get the scents to aide your ruse ;-)
