I did gift bags from the Stork aka "the pretty bird" with candy filled bottles and a poem announcing the sibling. All based upon my 5 year old's theory of how a mom "gets a baby in her tummy." I think it all depends on your kids personally but you could take them to a pumpkin patch and tell them each kiddo gets a pumpkin. Once they all pick theirs, you could tell them to grab one more. See how long it takes them to catch on. Or another idea since there are 4 of them would be to get them each a small gift to be used on the baby. A onesie, bottle, pacifier, pack of wipes, etc... Wrap them up with a card that says to be used in April. When they look around and see that they all got stuff for a baby they will probably guess. There's also the meal of all "baby" foods (baby back ribs, baby carrotts, etc...)
That's all I have for now. Let us know what you decide!
