Only TEACHING!!! And, yes, teaching is also the only profession where you can legitimately wear a SpongeBob t-shirt on SpongeBob day!
I was reading the April issue of Family Fun magazine, where there were a ton of cute ideas for April Fool’s day pranks. Even though April Fool’s Day is on Sunday, I could not resist this cute prank!
I followed the directions step by step- covered two paper towel rolls with plastic baggies and plastic wrap to create the cast form, slid the tube sock over the form, and covered it with glue. For more detailed direction, click here.
When the students walked into class this morning, they were immediately asking what happened to my arm. I tragically explained that while walking my dog yesterday night, I fell into a crack on the sidewalk and broke my wrist. If only my shoe laces were tied!!! I had to be rushed to the emergency room where the doctors immediately took an X-ray and put my arm in a cast.
My fan club was very sympathetic and signed my cast with their well wishes. They were very careful not to press down too much on my
I got lots of hugs, cards, and letters. Some of the other teachers even thought my cast was real! (And I am NOT fooling with that one!!!)
After lunch, I broke the news to my students, Happy (EARLY!) April Fool’s Day!!!! There were lots of confused looks until I took the cast (sock!) off my arm! They couldn’t believe it!!! They really were shocked! I showed them the article in the magazine and explained how I made the cast- they were very impressed!
I even kept my cast for a souvenir!
All you moms and dads out there- maybe you can get out some housework and weekend chores by this cute little prank!
If putting a cast on your arm is not your thing…try baking some brownies for your kiddos. We post about this last year, too!
Grab a bunch of brown construction paper and die cut a batchful of upper and lowercase E's. Put them in a baking pan, cover with aluminum foil and...wah-lah!! Freshly baked "brown E's"!!
OK, you probably saw that one coming but, believe me, a classroom of little kiddos won't!!
Have kids of your own at home?
Leave the pan on the counter so your own little sweeties can get in on the foolin', too!
Or should I say, Brown E’s?????
Have a great weekend and Happy April Fool’s Day!
