April Fools

The April Fools painting above by Norman Rockwell appeared on the Saturday Evening Post cover April 3, 1943. It has 43 mistakes or fooleries. Enjoy a bit of fun to celebrate April Fools.

Below are some game ideas:
*Try to spot all 43 items before you look at the link.
*To play the game with younger children, you may want to enlarge the photo and print it. Then you and the children can circle the items.
*Or you could simply write a list on separate paper.
*Another idea, print off the list (at the link) and try to find the items in the painting.
*The best photo of the painting is at the link:

Whichever way you choose, I hope you enjoy it.

World War II still raged when this painting was created. The war years took a toll on the nation. These paintings by Rockwell offered a much needed temporary relief from the constant tension.

Personally, I think there may be more than 43 items. What do you think? Feel free to tell me in the comments below.

Until next time . . . Travel Light,
