22 More April Fool’s Tricks and Pranks for Kids

Ok, so I already explained how much we love April Fool’s Day here, so I don’t need to again. But I did want to share some more fun pranks you all can do tomorrow when you are all full of mischief.

First, I want to show you what happens when you mess with a 3 year old’s Cheetos….

This video is from waaaaaaay back! I opened some bags of Cheetos and switched them out for carrots. Then I used double-stick tape to seal the bag back up. I sent one with Maddie to school, but was able to catch Aislyn’s reaction at home. She was really mad because I never get chips and these are her favorites! Sorry about the {really, really, really} bad job of video taping….enjoy!

Now on with the other pranks:

~ Take the bar of soap from your shower and paint it entirely with clear nail polish so it won’t lather.

~ Hardboil all the eggs and put them back into the carton

~ Tuck a wad of toilet paper into the toes of your kids’ shoes, so when they go to put them on, they will think their shoes shrunk.

~ Place a post-it note over the tracker on the bottom of someone’s mouse.

~ Set all the clocks ahead 1 hour, so they will get up and ready for school an hour early.

~ Bring several sets of clothes to work (or even at home) and change every hour but act like nothing is wrong.

~ Make a “sponge cake” (an actually sponge frosted and covered in sprinkles). Just be warned about a riot when they find out there’s not any real cake. From Spooful

~ Switch the inner bags of cereal with each other and watch the fam hunt around for their favorite.

~ If your kids are heavy sleepers, switch them in their beds so they wake up in the wrong place.

~ You can also switch your kids’ clothes in their dressers and watch them scramble in the morning (thanks for this one Jess!)

~ Mashed potato sundae from Martha Stewart. ‘Nuff said.

~Safety pin all your hubby’s or kids’ undies together so when they pull one pair out, the rest will come too.

~ Get a bunch of cheap plastic bugs and place them all over the house.

~ Get a big fake lizard and tie one end of a piece of string to its neck and the other to a door handle that opens inwards (ie, a door the “victim” pulls open towards them). Then, when the kids open their bedroom door in the morning, a fake lizard will come flying in at them! Hubby did this to the front door a few years back and got the kids really good!

~ Switch the keys on the keyboard of someone’s computer.

~ Put cereal and milk in a bowl at night and then freeze it. Next morning, serve it up to your kiddos and watch them try to eat frozen cereal!

~ Make fake grilled cheese sammies for dinner (using pound cake and orange-ish frosting). My kids were SO happy when we did this one year! From Spooful

~ Put a piece of tape over the sensor on all the remotes in the house. This one is pretty funny with kids.

~ Use gelatin to solidify juice or milk for breakfast. Put a straw in it to watch the kids try to suck it out.

~ Make some meatloaf cupcakes for dinner and frost them with pink mashed potatoes….Yes, this one made my kids mad too since they thought they were totally getting cupcakes for dinner!

Just keep in mind that you should NOT do this to anyone unless you are %100 sure they will not be mad at you.
