10 April Fools’ Day Pranks to Play on Your Kids

Kids love pranks, and since I dropped the ball with the leprechaun this year, I am going to step up my game for April 1st. But, I like simple, so here are some easy ways to get the best of your kids.

1. Bed Swap
While your kids are sleeping, switch them and put them into each other’s bed. 

2. Freeze their cereal.
Put a bowl of cereal with milk and a spoon in the fridge before you go to bed, and then set it out for them in the morning.

3. Pack them a surprising lunch. 
Embed a surprise bug or two in their sandwich. You can usually find fake bugs at the Dollar Store.

4. Change the settings on their phone.
My kids do this to me ALL the time so this is a perfect time to get back to them. They change basic words like “yes” and “no” to ‘I’m stupid.” Pick works they use all the time and chance them to “LOVE YOU” or “MY MOM IS THE BEST.” To do it, on their phone, go to “General” settings, then “keyboard” and then “text replacement.”

5. Change their ring tone.
Change their ring tone to something silly like a minion hello or darth fader breathing.

6. Change the password on your Netflix account
and tell them you forgot to pay the bill too many times, and you can never have Netflix again. Have the tissues ready.


7. Toilet surprise.
Tape a surprising photo on the toilet bowl.

8. Put bubble wrap under a throw rug or the rug in their room. Watch them jump.

9. Cut a brown piece of construction paper into block E’s,
put them in a tin with foil on top and tell them you made brown-Es.

10. Put a “for sale” sign in your front yard.

Share any ideas you have with us.
We’d love to hear them … or, send some pictures of the expression on your kids faces!
