For April Fool’s Day, we like pranks that are easy to pull off at the last minute. Here are a few of our favorites, most of which use things from around the house.
Googly Eyes – This one makes me laugh. Stick googly eyes on things. Like a fruit basket on the kitchen table or everything inside your fridge!
Giant Pencils – This one will need a little advance planning (unless you keep giant pencils on the ready.) My kids crack up when they see me writing with a huge pencil. Then send it to school with your kids to do their school work.
Frozen Cereal – This is my favorite. It’s so easy and the look of surprise on your kids faces is so funny. Throw a bowl of cereal in the freezer the night before. When your kids come to the breakfast table, they’ll be confused when their spoon is not working.
