Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day and I can’t resist playing just a little trick on the kiddos. I have a really cute fun food friday to share for April Fool’s, so you’ll have to check it out tomorrow. Today I’m going to share a couple other treats you can make to trick the little ones. A friendly little trick never hurt anyone, right? I made the kids these jello oranges last week and they absolutely adored them. Kirsten was hilarious when I gave her the plate as she looked at them with a puzzled little face. She told me the oranges look “giggly.” She always says giggly instead of jiggly and it cracks me up. These were really fun and simple to make and would make a great little April Fool’s snack for the kids. Here’s how to make them:
What you’ll need:
1. slice your oranges in half lengthwise.
2. scoop out all the orange inside the peel leaving just the empty orange shell. I used the orange to make some fresh squeezed OJ!
3. prepare orange jello according to package directions
4. place the orange halves on something sturdy – I used a muffin pan so it would hold the orange halves upright.
5. pour the orange jello into the orange halves, filling to the top.
6. refrigerate until set.
7. remove from the fridge and slice the oranges in segments.
8. give to the kiddos and be prepared for some puzzled little faces!
As you can see, the kids ate them right up!
The next two things I made for the kiddos last year for April Fool’s Day supper. The kids didn’t love the meatloaf cupcakes, but I thought they tasted terrific.
We also had an egg sunny-side up for dessert – this was made using vanilla yogurt and half a peach.

Have fun tricking the little ones!
