April Fools Pranks for Kids!
You don't have to be a child to play practical jokes and funny pranks on friends and family members; grown-ups like to make some mischief too. The answer is to make sure your prank is entertaining instead of harmful. Evade tricks that are abusive, threatening, damaging, or harmful, and always keep your audience in mind. The following tricks are perfect for a little grown-up goofy fun.
  • Tape the light switch so they can't flip it. For younger kids, use colored tape. For older kids, clear tape molded to the shape of the switch is best. Make them wonder why the light is not moving!
  • Decorate a sponge as a piece of cake, Coat a sponge with icing, and let it sit out on the counter. See if your kiddos can resist taking a bite.
  • Salted Cookies: Make a batch of homemade cookies and instead of sugar, add salt. Package the cookies up in attractive tins or arrange them on a plate. Leave the container on the table or bring it to a friend's house for dinner. Don't forget to carry a camera to capture people's facial expressions when they take a bite.
  • Lemon Juice: Squeeze a bit of lemon juice in someone's water when she is not looking. You could also add a small amount of vinegar or salt. Then get ready for her reaction when she takes another sip.
  • Frozen Cereal: The night before you plan to do this prank, pour some cereal and milk into a bowl. Then place the bowl in the freezer overnight. The next morning, offer to make breakfast and place the frozen cereal and a spoon in front of your "victim." Watch and enjoy as he tries to take a bite.
  • Gooey Phone: Put something gooey on the phone's ear or mouthpieces such as toothpaste or peanut butter. Don't use gum to get caught in the victim's hair and can't be washed out. Make sure the person is not allergic to whatever you put on the phone. Then give the person a call and watch his reaction.
  • Shoes Got Smaller: Stuff a sock or napkin in the toes of the 'victim's' shoes. If you're feeling mischievous, take a moment to perform this trick on every pair of shoes the person owns.
  • Balloons in the Bedroom: Fill the 'victims' bedroom with balloons. Choose helium-filled balloons for the best impact. You may need to rent a helium tank to pull off this trick. When the person opens the bedroom door, balloons will come floating out.
  • Door Trick: While the 'victim' is asleep, tape a piece of newspaper from the top of the door frame to the wall over the door. Place foam peanuts, popcorn, or small paper balls over the top of the newspaper above the door. When the 'victim' wakes up and walks out the door, she will be showered with these lightweight objects floating down on her head as the newspaper rips.
  • Spider Attack: Attach several tiny fake spiders to a thin string. Tape the string just above the door jam and then shut the door. Fit the spiders into the small space between the top of the door and the door jam. When your victim opens the door, the spiders will fall and appear to be jumping at him. Get the video camera ready to capture his reaction.
