With schools in the UK closed due to the coronavirus, one mother saw the opportunity to play the perfect April Fools’ Day prank – getting her son ready for school, and even walking him part of the way there, before revealing they had not reopened.
Erica Spriggens’s video shows her son Blake turning round in disbelief when she reveals the prank to him. The seven-year-old was able to see the funny side of joke, she said.
Speaking to Storyful, Spriggens said, “I planted the seed the night before and laid out his uniform. Then, in the morning, we headed out. He said his goodbyes to his dad and his baby brother before heading out with a pack I made up for school.” Credit: Erica Spriggens via Storyful
