Go on a Bible scavenger hunt. Look up the following verses and see what they say about foolishness. I wasn’t as clever with this one as we were the last one – I could not find verses for very letter of April Fools, but I did choose verses that have an important message about being a fool! Good verses to discuss with our kids.
