Playing an April Fools’ joke on the kids is tricky. You want it to be clever but not mean, childish but not silly, funny but not messy. And above all, when it comes to my kids, I try to make them laugh and not cry.
Sounds easy but if you have an emotional and sensitive 5 year old at home things can go sour quickly. From experience… hiding his favorite stuffed animal, not a good idea. Dying the dog blue would probably end up with some hearty belly laughs but is out of the question because of the mess.
If you are like us and are still looking for some crafty, tear-free ideas here are a few that are sure to provide some harmless fun on April 1st.

Introducing Pantone’s Aruba Blue and the color inspiration behind Bijou — the latest addition to our collection of soft and airy 100% cotton muslin scarves.
We were inspired by this cool, calming shade that is also reminiscent of the gemstone aquamarine. Bijou—French for jewel—is a classic summer color that complements every skin tone. Paired with a pale pink or bright white shirt or dress, this scarf is as fresh as it is on-trend.
