Put your toddler in a bathtub with no water or give them a juice box without a straw. Read a book upside down to your preschooler or serve ice cream sundaes for dinner. April Fools!
Silly faces, peekaboo, and unexpected tickles connect toddlers and parents. Funny business, like silly words to a song or wearing underwear as a hat tickles a child’s sense of humor. Plan fun April Fool’s pranks to create a reason for your child to think, listen and talk.
Kid’s get a kick out of talking about silly situations. Slapstick humor leads to understanding riddles, knock-knock jokes, puns and even sarcasm for older kids. Humor is evidence of brain development and growing listening, spoken language and social skills.
