This mom took the what the fluff challenge to its logical conclusion – confusing her kids with her ‘Houdini’ vanishing act.

Chelse Brown, 28, fooled her daughter Emily, 4, and son Patton, 1, into thinking she had pulled off an audacious disappearance.

Using a blanket, Chelse hoists it up above her head as her two kids watch on.

As she drops the blanket to the floor, the pair looked stunned as they look around in disbelief that their mom has vanished into thin air.

Emily quickly ventures around the sofa to check the scene, calling out ‘Mommy?’, but can’t locate her.

Chelse, from Fort Mitchell, Alabama, USA, said: “We have been seeing lots of videos of owners doing the trick for their dogs and had an idea to try it with the kids.

“The kids actually thought I really disappeared and it took a solid 5 minutes before they found me and were very surprised when they did.

“Then Emily wanted to try it. She tried and then threw a fit because she didn’t actually disappear. She thought she would.”
