April Fool's Day BreakfastApril Fool's Day can be so much fun! I am not a fan of the mean side to April 1st because tricks and mean jokes are not very fun if you are the one being tricked….BUT being silly and odd can be so much fun…especially to a house full of boys! This is a fun, easy to make ahead breakfast that is perfect for an April Fool's Day breakfast!
Tuna Can Muffin
To make the Tuna Can Muffin, you will just need a few things that you probably already have in your pantry. I use Simple Mornings Wild Maine blueberry muffin mix to quickly make muffins, and as you may or may not know, the blueberries come in a can that looks similar to a tuna can. I simply rinsed out the can and baked a muffin in the can and then when it was done and cooled, I removed the label off of a tuna can that I had and taped it on to the blueberry can! Any can will work, but I preferred to not have to rinse the tuna smell off of a real tuna can.
I made this "egg" drink on accident. I thought I'd add a cheery sun to my Kion's Morning Sunrise Drink with a yellow ice ball made in a large ice ball mold. Well, as I was taking pictures, I realized that the big round "sun" actually looked like an egg. The boys quickly confirmed my thinking and turned up their noses. So, I removed the sun from that drink and turned it into this fun, completely safe and edible "raw egg" drink for April Fool's Day!

The 5 year old was more than willing to try this "disgusting" drink. He said it was delicious and tasted like soda! Who knew?
