- I am a true kid at heart and April Fool's Day has always been fun for me! This will be the first year that my oldest son will be able to really understand whats going on....I am SO excited to trick and fool him...and his dad! LOL!
- Some very simple things you can do with no prework and (here's my frugal side) it won't cost you a thing is:
- ~Switch up your place setting. Kids eat on adult dinner ware and parents eat with the kids.
- ~Flip plates over and serve dinner on the underside of the plate.
- ~While they are asleep, dig out some Christmas decorations and decorate the house.
- ~Have them dress for school mis-matched or inside out...2 different shoes.
- ~While they are asleep take all the toys away...leaving empty bins.
- Be creative and most of all HAVE FUN!
- Here are some other fun ideas as well!
- I looked forever to find these easy to do, easily understandable, a fun tricks you can pull on your kids!
- 3 tablespoons white chocolate chips
- 12 yellow M&MS
- 1 square caramel
- 1 Tootsie Roll Midgee
For the eggs:
Melt the white chocolate chips according to the package directions. Transfer the melted chocolate to a ziplock bag and snip off a corner. Squeeze nickel-size portions of the chocolate onto a sheet of waxed paper, then gently press a yellow M&M, letter side down, into the center of each. Let
the candies cool. Makes 12 eggs.
the candies cool. Makes 12 eggs.
For the fakin':
Remove the wrapping from a square caramel and a Tootsie Roll Midgee. Microwave the candies for 4 seconds to make them soft. Use your thumb and forefinger to slightly flatten each candy piece, then press them together.
"ACCIDENT ON THE FLOOR"
Leave this "accident" on the carpet or couch April Fools' Day and listen to everyone exclaim, "Not me!" for a bit before letting them in on the secret: dried paint and glue make a believable mess. This project needs to be made several days in advance, but the payoff is well worth it.
Mix 2 tablespoons of tacky glue with about 1 tablespoon of brown acrylic paint (remember that the shade will darken as the glue dries). Drizzle some of the mixture down the inside of a disposable cup, then lay the cup and a plastic spoon on a cookie sheet covered with plastic wrap. Pour the rest of the mixture near the cup's edge and onto the spoon, adding a few mini marshmallows (snipped in half for a partially melted look) if you like. Allow the mess to dry for about 3 days, then remove it from the plastic wrap and let it air-dry completely on a protected surface. (Prank Found on Family Fun)
- Following the package directions, mix up a box of lemon-flavored gelatin (we added a drop of red food coloring to darken it)(you can also do yellow or green). Pour the mixture into clear glasses and insert a drinking straw into each. Place the glasses in the refrigerator to set. When they're ready, serve the jiggling juice to the next parched target (or two!) looking for a cool drink. (Prank found on Family Fun)
"WATER COLORED FUN"
Freak out your kids or spouse by adding Crayola Color Dotz Bath Tub Tints inside the faucet! Unscrew the cap on the faucet, and set a couple of the tablets inside. When the water is turned on, get ready for a burst of color! And it’s easy with no clean up. (Water prank found on Martha Stewart)
