Family Friendly April Fools Pranks

I don’t play many April Fools pranks but I thought it may be fun to play a few on my family this year. I’ve already decided to make “cupcakes” for dinner {really they are mini meatloaf muffins with mashed potatoes on top}. Here are some other great family friendly pranks to play:

Tell your kids you made them "brownies" and give them some "brown E's"!


Pour some blue milk for breakfast


Who wants to go to "chore camp"?


Magically cut banana


Warm "ice water" anyone?


Plant some dessert :)

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Today, April 1st, is April Fool’s Day.

My favorite prank I ever played on anyone was one year (and come to think of it, I don’t even know if it was April Fool’s Day or not) my brother and I played a prank on our mom. We put a sign on the back of her car that said “honk, it’s my birthday” before we drove away from the house. Everyone was honking at her and she couldn’t figure out why. It was hilarious.

Here are some April Fool’s Day resources I found:
