11 Fun Ways to Trick Your Kids this April Fool’s Day
March 29, 2019
April Fool’s Day has rolled around once again, and while we don’t want to alarm you, your kids probably have something cheeky planned. But who says they’re the only ones who get to have some fun?
If you love a laugh and don’t mind the potential lifelong trust issues that come with them (just kidding!) these harmless yet hilarious pranks will cement your status as the Coolest Parent Ever.
1. Replace Easter Eggs with Grapes
Since this year’s April Fool’s Day falls just a couple of weeks before Easter, why not capitalise on your little one’s love of chocolate by unwrapping solid eggs and re-wrapping them with grapes in their place?
2. Spill “Milk” on Their Devices
Give them the shock of their lives by planting a fake puddle of spilt milk on their laptop, tablet or gaming console! All you have to do is cover a smooth surface with soap, squirt some white glue in a splatter shape and let it dry (about six to 10 hours). Then you can pick it up and place it wherever!
3. Bake Them Some “Brownies”
An oldie but a goodie! When they get home from school, tell them you’ve baked them some brownies. They’ll come running into the kitchen only to find this instead…
4. Block the TV Remote
For a simple but effective prank, cover the sensor on your TV remote (or their game controller or computer mouse!) with coloured tape. Try to stifle the laughter as they scratch their heads wondering why they can’t change the channel!
5. Leave a Surprise in the Mailbox
Is your child in charge of fetching the mail? Give them a cheeky little scare by leaving a toy spider, snake or lizard on top of the mail!
6. Buy them an “iPad”
They’ve been desperate one, so why not give it to them?
7. Freeze Their Cereal
Does your little monkey eat cereal each and every morning? Make their life easier by prepping it the night before… and then putting it in the freezer. Trust us, the look on their face the next morning will be priceless.
