Faked Potato
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

These dud spuds make a great side dish at dinnertime on April Fools' day. After the joke's been sprung, kids can serve up the pretend potatoes at playtime.

What you'll need

  • Nude-colored nylons
  • Pillow batting
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Yellow craft foam

How to make it

  1. Faked Potato - Step 1

    For each potato, stuff an 8-inch section of nude-colored nylons with pillow batting (A).

  2. Faked Potato - Step 2

    Twist both ends and use a needle and thread to sew them to the bottom (B).

  3. Faked Potato - Step 3

    For each eye, push the threaded needle up from the bottom and out the top of the potato, then back through about 1/8 inch from where it came out (C). Pull the needle out the bottom and knot the thread to secure it. Before "serving," use scissors to cut a slit in the top and add a pat of craft foam butter.
