Do you like playing harmless and silly pranks on your family?
I personally think it’s fun to become a little bit of a prankster once in a while to lighten the mood and make my kids laugh. Here are a few funny and easy April Fool’s pranks and ideas sure to bring some giggles this April 1st, or even year-round when they least expect it! Ha Ha!
1.) “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?
Collin actually played this prank on her daughter, Piper, a few years back. Check out this April Fools FAIL video as things didn’t go as planned. 🤣
2.) Bug on a Lampshade
3.) Donut Box Trick
This April Fool’s prank is bound to get everyone! 😂 Grab a donut box and fill it with fresh veggies for a funny fake out!
4.) 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!
5.) 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!
6.) 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!
7.) “Spaghetti and Meatballs” Cupcakes
While it’s technically an April Fool’s prank, this easy cupcake recipe actually makes for a yummy treat amidst the joke! Plus, they look so realistic!
