Do you like playing harmless and silly pranks on your family? Here are a few funny and easy April Fool’s ideas sure to bring some giggles this April 1st.
“Ice Cream” Sundaes
Use an ice cream scooper to serve up these “ice cream” Sundaes that are actually made from mashed potatoes and gravy. Don’t they look so realistic?
Bug on a Lampshade
Tape a plastic bug (find plastic spiders at your local dollar store!) on the inside of a lampshade and then ask a family member to turn on the light. Yikes!
Donut Box Trick
Grab a donut box and fill it with fresh veggies for a funny fake out!
Oreo Cookie Trick
Replace Oreo cookie filling with toothpaste! Use a butter knife to scrape off the Oreo filling and place a little white toothpaste in the middle of one side. When you put it back together, it looks exactly like a real Oreo cookie! Collin actually pranked her kiddos with this trick back in 2013!
That’s Not Orange Juice
You know that orange powdered cheese packet that comes with packaged Mac and Cheese? Pour it into a pitcher, mix with water, and it looks exactly like orange juice! Haha!
Cracker Jack Carrots
For a funny lunch box prank, replace a snack box like Cracker Jacks with fresh baby carrots. This trick also works well with a small bag of chips. Just remember to seal the package back up with a little double sided tape for a more realistic effect! 🙂
“Spaghetti and Meatballs” Cupcakes
Try this easy cupcake recipe for a fun and yummy April Fool’s treat. They look so realistic!
Also here’s a fun April Fool’s Day book for the kids!
