This might come a little late for this year, but we just saw the tiniest and most hilarious April Fools joke that we think you and your Cub Scouts will get a kick out of. This idea was submitted by a Scout Mom in Arizona, and we’re sharing it with you!

The Matchbox Lunch!

Surprise your Cub Scout with a homemade lunch, and let them know you made it especially for their hungry appetites! Then present them a matchbox filled with a “complete meal” of veggie sticks, sandwich, fruit and dessert! This Matchbox Lunch features raisins, baby carrot sticks, a teeny tiny peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a dessert of a dry piece of cereal with sprinkles to make it look like a donut.

Tiny Lunch

We especially love the piece of cereal with sprinkles. It does look just like a donut! So clever!

We think this would also be a fun April Fools-themed Den Activity for Cub Scouts to make for their parents or siblings. It could even be a hilarious “treat” for Den Leaders to prepare for their Cub Scouts.

You’ll giggle and your Cub Scout will want to keep his tiny lunch for show-and-tell. Parents, just make sure you have a back-up lunch as well in case he’s still hungry!
