Juice or Jelly?
Watch as the kids try to drink their juice and nothing comes up the straw. Get instructions from Delish.


Ketchup & Mustard Bottle Prank

April Fools Lollipops
Disguising broccoli as candy is a great food prank to pull on the kids. Get instructions from The Decorated Cookie.


Shampoo Bottle Prank
Unscrew the cap from your child's shampoo, conditioner, or shower gel. Stick a small piece of plastic wrap inside, then re-screw the cap. When they squeeze the bottle and nothing comes out — over and over again, they’ll soon figure out it’s an April Fool’s joke.


Bug in an Ice Cube Prank
A classic prank! Find some plastic bugs in your kids toy collection and freeze them into ice cubes. Place them in the kids’ cold drinks for a good squeal (and laugh)!


Cereal Box Prank
Take your kids' favourite cereal box and replace it with dad's bran.
