Best April Fool’s Day Pranks for Kids

It is always celebrated on April 1st each year in the United States and Canada.

It is not an official holiday but many people celebrate the day with pranks and practical jokes.

The tradition of how April Fool’s Day originated is interesting but not as good as the origin of Halloween.

Some think of it as the first day of spring while others think that it is because April 1st is the first day of the new year. Here are some fun pranks for you to use.


Very cold cereal

In a bowl, add some water and freeze it overnight.

The next morning, fix your kids their bowl of cereal by adding the cereal on top of the ice.

Watch your kids try to dig into their morning cereal.


Toilet paper and shoes

Scrunch up a bunch of toilet paper and stuff it into the toe area of the shoes.

When they go to put their shoes on, they will wonder why they don’t fit right.


The principal called

This is a great prank for older kids.

When your child comes home from school, tell them that the school principal called about their behavior.


Fake grilled cheese sandwich

You can make pound cake and butter cream frosting look like a grilled cheese sandwich. Slice a pound cake so it looks like bread slices.

Add some yellow and red food coloring to butter cream frosting until it resembles melted cheese.

Toast the slices of cake until they are browned.

Spread the frosting onto one slice of cake and add another slice of cake to make a sandwich.

This is my favorite Best April Fool’s Day Pranks for Kids.


The marshmallow and the straw

Take a straw and stuff a small bit of marshmallow to one end.

Add the clogged end to a glass of milk or other beverage and watch while they try and sip their drink.


Confetti everywhere

Add some confetti to the ceiling fan paddles. Have someone turn the fan on and watch the confetti spread everywhere.
