Sunday is April Fool’s Day.  Princess Nagger is a little bummed it doesn’t fall on a school day so she could pull some pranks on her classmates and teachers, but she’s been trying to figure out some fun pranks to pull on the hubby and Little Dude.  Since she loves pulling pranks, I think I’ll have to pull a few pranks of my own.  It’s only fair.

I had to Google April Fools Pranks to see if there were any ‘fresh’ ideas out there (we’ve already used the post-it note on the mouse, taped phones and whoopie cushions under the couch cushions to death, so it was time for some new ideas).  Here are some fun pranks that made me giggle – and might give you some ideas yourself, some of which I think I’ll have to pull just for fun:

Photo Switch

Find a small picture of a monkey (or anything else you think is funny) and use temporary glue (a glue stick works well) to place it over the photo on the victim’s driver’s license. Then send them out for beer, or find some other excuse to send them somewhere where they will need to show their ID.

Positively Scary

Ask a pregnant woman to take a pregnancy test for you, then bring it home and leave the stick in the bathroom for your husband to find. Make sure he doesn’t have a weak heart.

Just One More

Go on the internet and find a funny picture of something (example: a cartoon rabbit) and print out 24 of them. Hide the pictures all around the room in a mixture of easy and difficult places. Tape one that has a note saying “I bet you can’t find all 25 of the pictures”. Your victim will look for the 25th rabbit for a long time before you tell them that there were only 24.


With the victim looking on, pretend you see a fly in the room. Grab a fly swatter and chase it around for a while. Then make a big swat, reach down and grab the “fly” (actually a raisin you’ve concealed in your hand), and gobble it down.

Can’t Flush Your Troubles Away

Pour some yellow food coloring into the upper tank of your victim’s toilet. Then wait for your victim to use the bathroom. They’ll flush and flush but won’t be able to flush it down.

Creamy Scoop

Get an ice cream cone, but instead of filling it with ice cream, fill it with a nice scoop of mashed potatoes (you could add sprinkles to make it look even more like an ice cream cone). Then offer the delicious treat to your victim.

And now for this week’s question:

Do you pull any pranks on April Fool’s Day? What are your favorite (or most successful) ones?

Have a great weekend!


Happy Aloha Friday!

  1. Great ideas for April Fool’s Day.

    I once had a student who could be cantankerous. Her mother was sweet. Last April Fool’s, her daughter and I planned a good prank.

    I ran out into the living room telling her mother that I had had enough of her thankless daughter. I ranted and hissed much to the surprise of her mother. The latter offered me a raise to stay, virtually begging me.

    We broke the news to her mother and I still got the raise anyway!

  2. Those are all so funny! The fly-raisin prank would be hilarious to pull on my kids. I’m not really much of a prankster, though. My husband is a firefighter and they love to pull pranks all the time at the firehouse.

  3. My children usually have a few pranks on hand, like switching the sugar with salt or putting sand from the sand pit in my shoes….I like your ‘icecream’ idea and will try this out on sunday 😉 Thanks for sharing.
