We’ll start by saying that this is not, not cruel but most fun things are. Step one, show your 5 year old a picture of a chilled out moving horse. Here’s one we made earlier:
For added evilness you might want to give the horse a name and share the name with your 5 year old. This has the added effect of making the horse real. Here’s the really cool part. Distract the kid long enough to replace the horse with something else you prepared earlier, a la Horsedog:
Next, allow the kid to look at the new picture and watch the mass confusion as he/she tries to figure out how the nice moving horsey has become a static horsedog.
NB: Please note that some 5 year olds may cry as they just cannot seem to figure out what happened to the horsey. If this happens, tell him/her to shut up and grow up.
