Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Hello Cécile! What will you do tomorrow? - It'll be April 1st tomorrow, so I'll have fun with my sons. In the morning, the boys will draw some fish on (some) paper, then they'll cut them out. After lunch, we'll go to the park where they'll be able to stick their fish on their friends' backs! My sons have always loved that tradition! Of course, we will also prepare a prank to surprise their dad when he comes back from work. It will be so funny!

Clever stuff happening!
