I don't know about you, but April Fool's Day was very stressful in my household growing up. I have an older brother who pranked regardless of the day, so I knew to keep my guard up on the one day he isn't going to get in trouble for it!
Now that I have my own home and family, I want to participate in the fun, but just want it to be nice! Here are the five best kid/family-friendly pranks I found:
1. Jello Juice Glasses
Fill your kids juice glasses with prepared jello mix and pop them into the refrigerator. By morning, when the kids try to drink their juice, they will be in for a delicious and silly surprise!
2. Snap Crackle and Pop!
Tape a few pieces of bubble wrap under the toilet seat and put the seat back down. When the next person sits down, they sure will hear it!
3. Edible Agate Candies
What a great treat! Beautiful and tasty, no one will believe these aren't real agate! Learn how to make these here.
4. April Showers Bring May Donuts??
Give your kids a pack of donut seeds (printable template here) filled with an "o" shaped cereal. Sit back and watch who tries to plant them!
5. Helium Balloon Bathroom Surprise
Take a helium balloon, stick it in the toilet and put the toilet cover down. The next person to use the bathroom will get a fun surprise!
