5 April Fools’ Pranks to Get 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. April Fools’ Day is on a Saturday this year. Wake all your kids up and tell them they are going to be late for school. Watch them scramble then jump back in 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. 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.

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

5. 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.

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