15 April Fool&rsquos Pranks for Kids That Are Silly and Harmless

Your little ones will love these goofy gags that you can put together in a minute or two.

When it comes to birthdays and gift-giving holidays, kids get all the attention. So why should they be exempt from getting pranked on April Fool&rsquos Day? (Answer: They shouldn&rsquot!) Get the littles in on the fun by targeting them with some harmless and fun April Fool&rsquos pranks.

Most of these ideas can be arranged simply and cheaply, with some that are a bit more elaborate for parents who really want to commit. Obviously, make sure you have that camera out to capture the memories. But do be prepared: Once you&rsquove pranked your kid, you can expect retaliation.

Whip up a batch of Jell-O, toss in a straw, and let it set in clear drinking glasses until it resembles their favorite flavor of juice or fruit punch. Serve up these glasses of &ldquojuice&rdquo to your kiddos &mdash who will get absolutely nowhere when they try to slurp it up through the straw.

This gag couldn&rsquot be easier for a PG-rated gag: Get out that bag of googly eyes from the craft drawer, and open the fridge. Place a set of eyes on everything you see: the carton of milk, the veggies, all the condiments. They&rsquoll crack up when they go in for breakfast, only to see all those little eyes staring back at them.

What&rsquos the first thing your kids do when they get up in the morning? Brush their teeth! So for a harmless (even tasty) prank, hand them a toothbrush topped with&hellip something that looks like toothpaste. Instead, they&rsquoll find their mouth filled with icing, cream cheese, or whatever passable substitute you have on hand.

On the night before April 1, sneak in to your kiddo&rsquos room and make some changes that will surprise them in the morning. Turn the chair upside down, put underwear on the dolls&hellip even switch sleeping siblings into each other&rsquos beds. They&rsquoll wake up to a silly surprise&hellip and know they&rsquore in for a fun and prank-filled April Fool&rsquos Day.

&ldquoHey kids, I made brownies!&rdquo Well, that&rsquos how it will sound when you say it &mdash and they&rsquoll come running. But when they lift up the foil covering the tray in the kitchen, they&rsquoll find a collection of letter E&rsquos you carefully cut from brown construction paper.

Unscrew the cap from their everyday shampoo, conditioner, or shower gel. Inside, affix a small piece of plastic wrap &mdash then re-screw the cap. When they squeeze that bottle and nothing comes out &mdash over and over again &mdash they&rsquoll eventually figure out it&rsquos an April Fool&rsquos gag.

After your kiddos go down for the night before April 1, pour a bowl with their favorite cereal &mdash including milk and spoon. Then place the bowl in the freezer. When you serve it up in the morning, they&rsquoll dig in for a hearty spoonful &mdash only to find the whole thing frozen solid, utensil and all.

This April Fool&rsquos joke is as old as they come &mdash but it&rsquos a timeless classic! Get yourself a pack of plastic bugs and freeze them into ice cubes so that the kids&rsquo cold drink gives them a good freakout. (Extra gross-out points if you use plastic roaches.) Plastic bugs also work for a cheap thrill when placed in drawers, under pillows . anywhere around the house where kids will discover them with a squeal!

Add food coloring to an opaque drink carton &mdash say, a carton of milk or orange juice. When they pull it from the fridge to pour a drink, they&rsquoll pour out a freaky surprise.

Pop Brussels sprouts on candy sticks and cover them with chocolate or candy wrappers. When your kids are expecting to bite into a cake pop or unwrap a lollipop, they&rsquoll realize your dessert offering was just an April Fool&rsquos joke. Womp womp!

For an April Fool&rsquos trick that&rsquos actually also a delicious treat, try baking up a batch of cookies that look convincingly like mounds of poop. Have fun placing them around the house, like under your kids' stuffed animals' butts, or in a (clean, disposable) kitty litter box lined with graham cracker crumbs. The recipe shown here is fully edible and delicious, made from chocolate chip cake batter, butter, and cream cheese.

Serve dessert that looks like dinner! Cut a slab of chocolate ice cream from a large carton, wrap in plastic wrap and form into a steak shape with your hands. Freeze until firm, then press lines into the ice cream with a skewer and sprinkle the lines with chocolate wafer crumbs to resemble grill marks. For the fries, cut frozen pound cake into sticks with a crinkle cutter, toss with melted butter and bake at 350° for 8 minutes, or until golden. Serve with strawberry jam.

Tie kids&rsquo shoelaces together so they&rsquoll get nowhere fast when they try to head out the door on April 1. Or, just fill their shoes with tissue paper or socks so their feet don&rsquot fit inside.

Offer the kids a tantalizing-looking bowl of Easter candy&hellip or is it? Nope, you&rsquoll have wrapped foil from chocolate eggs around ordinary green grapes. It creates a highly convincing illusion &mdash and a very rude surprise at unwrapping time!

To make the water run an unexpected color, unscrew the faucet cap. Inside, place tablets used for dying Easter eggs. Then replace the cap. Or, get a similar effect by swabbing the inside of the faucet with food coloring. Either way, they&rsquoll turn on the water and watch the whole sink turn a dramatic color!

Serve dessert that looks like dinner! Cut a slab of chocolate ice cream from a large carton, wrap in plastic wrap and form into a steak shape with your hands. Freeze until firm, then press lines into the ice cream with a skewer and sprinkle the lines with chocolate wafer crumbs to resemble grill marks. For the fries, cut frozen pound cake into sticks with a crinkle cutter, toss with melted butter and bake at 350° for 8 minutes, or until golden. Serve with strawberry jam.

Tie kids&rsquo shoelaces together so they&rsquoll get nowhere fast when they try to head out the door on April 1. Or, just fill their shoes with tissue paper or socks so their feet don&rsquot fit inside.

Offer the kids a tantalizing-looking bowl of Easter candy&hellip or is it? Nope, you&rsquoll have wrapped foil from chocolate eggs around ordinary green grapes. It creates a highly convincing illusion &mdash and a very rude surprise at unwrapping time!

To make the water run an unexpected color, unscrew the faucet cap. Inside, place tablets used for dying Easter eggs. Then replace the cap. Or, get a similar effect by swabbing the inside of the faucet with food coloring. Either way, they&rsquoll turn on the water and watch the whole sink turn a dramatic color!


15 April Fool&rsquos Pranks for Kids That Are Silly and Harmless

Your little ones will love these goofy gags that you can put together in a minute or two.

When it comes to birthdays and gift-giving holidays, kids get all the attention. So why should they be exempt from getting pranked on April Fool&rsquos Day? (Answer: They shouldn&rsquot!) Get the littles in on the fun by targeting them with some harmless and fun April Fool&rsquos pranks.

Most of these ideas can be arranged simply and cheaply, with some that are a bit more elaborate for parents who really want to commit. Obviously, make sure you have that camera out to capture the memories. But do be prepared: Once you&rsquove pranked your kid, you can expect retaliation.

Whip up a batch of Jell-O, toss in a straw, and let it set in clear drinking glasses until it resembles their favorite flavor of juice or fruit punch. Serve up these glasses of &ldquojuice&rdquo to your kiddos &mdash who will get absolutely nowhere when they try to slurp it up through the straw.

This gag couldn&rsquot be easier for a PG-rated gag: Get out that bag of googly eyes from the craft drawer, and open the fridge. Place a set of eyes on everything you see: the carton of milk, the veggies, all the condiments. They&rsquoll crack up when they go in for breakfast, only to see all those little eyes staring back at them.

What&rsquos the first thing your kids do when they get up in the morning? Brush their teeth! So for a harmless (even tasty) prank, hand them a toothbrush topped with&hellip something that looks like toothpaste. Instead, they&rsquoll find their mouth filled with icing, cream cheese, or whatever passable substitute you have on hand.

On the night before April 1, sneak in to your kiddo&rsquos room and make some changes that will surprise them in the morning. Turn the chair upside down, put underwear on the dolls&hellip even switch sleeping siblings into each other&rsquos beds. They&rsquoll wake up to a silly surprise&hellip and know they&rsquore in for a fun and prank-filled April Fool&rsquos Day.

&ldquoHey kids, I made brownies!&rdquo Well, that&rsquos how it will sound when you say it &mdash and they&rsquoll come running. But when they lift up the foil covering the tray in the kitchen, they&rsquoll find a collection of letter E&rsquos you carefully cut from brown construction paper.

Unscrew the cap from their everyday shampoo, conditioner, or shower gel. Inside, affix a small piece of plastic wrap &mdash then re-screw the cap. When they squeeze that bottle and nothing comes out &mdash over and over again &mdash they&rsquoll eventually figure out it&rsquos an April Fool&rsquos gag.

After your kiddos go down for the night before April 1, pour a bowl with their favorite cereal &mdash including milk and spoon. Then place the bowl in the freezer. When you serve it up in the morning, they&rsquoll dig in for a hearty spoonful &mdash only to find the whole thing frozen solid, utensil and all.

This April Fool&rsquos joke is as old as they come &mdash but it&rsquos a timeless classic! Get yourself a pack of plastic bugs and freeze them into ice cubes so that the kids&rsquo cold drink gives them a good freakout. (Extra gross-out points if you use plastic roaches.) Plastic bugs also work for a cheap thrill when placed in drawers, under pillows . anywhere around the house where kids will discover them with a squeal!

Add food coloring to an opaque drink carton &mdash say, a carton of milk or orange juice. When they pull it from the fridge to pour a drink, they&rsquoll pour out a freaky surprise.

Pop Brussels sprouts on candy sticks and cover them with chocolate or candy wrappers. When your kids are expecting to bite into a cake pop or unwrap a lollipop, they&rsquoll realize your dessert offering was just an April Fool&rsquos joke. Womp womp!

For an April Fool&rsquos trick that&rsquos actually also a delicious treat, try baking up a batch of cookies that look convincingly like mounds of poop. Have fun placing them around the house, like under your kids' stuffed animals' butts, or in a (clean, disposable) kitty litter box lined with graham cracker crumbs.
