The Best April Fools’ Pranks for You.

April Fools’ Day is almost here so I thought it was time to update some of my favourite April Fools pranks.

As I’m sure you know, April Fools’ Day is the scariest of all the holidays. Not only because it has an incredibly difficult apostrophe placement but because it’s way scarier than Halloween. Seriously, what’s scarier to you? A kid dressed up like Batman politely knocking on your door between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m. or worrying all day that someone is planning to terrify you with an April Fool’s joke?  The later obviously.  No one even has to do anything, it’s the notion that it’s coming.

I generally forget all about April Fools’ Day until the actual day, which leaves me no time to plan a really good attack on someone.

I thought you might be the same. You know, in that you aren’t crazy enough to pre-plan for April Fools’ Day but just crazy enough to be bothered by the fact that you didn’t.

So I’ve collected some of the best and easiest April Fools’ Day jokes (from my brain and from around the web)  you can play on your family and co-workers this year.

1.

The best part about this is the shark actually flutters a bit when you lift the toilet lid from the air movement.

I’ve taken the liberty of creating a PDF that you can print out right now.  It’s printed on 2 pieces of standard printer paper. You just need to tape them together and then tape them under the toilet seat.  Just click on the links and print away.  (They need to print on the paper with a horizontal orientation, not vertical which you would normally use)

Shark Bottom of Mouth

2.

The night before April Fools’ Day go into your spouse’s car and turn all the settings to maximum:  radio, heat, windshield wipers … ALL of it.

 

3.

Add a Voice Activated sign to pretty much anything new in your workplace.  Toaster in the break room, equipment, new TV …

I’d personally take this one step further with the toaster in the break room. I’d go buy a cheap toaster at a thrift store and remove the levers for lowering the toast.  So there is literally no way to push the toast down, reinforcing the ridiculous nothing that it’s voice activated.

 

4.

Hide Scented air fresheners all over someone’s office.

5.

This one will take some commitment, but … you could do a lite version on something else.

 car-covered-in-post-it-notes

 

 

6.

Add food colouring to milk or cream that’s in a cardboard container.  LOVE this idea.

 

7.

8.

Change your bosses screensaver to something like this.  Works especially well if your boss is 6’4″ and mean.

 

sad-kitten

 

 

9.

You know how kids can sleep through anything?  If you have kids that share a room, when they’re sound asleep switch their places so they wake up in the other one’s bed.

 

 

10.

The old raisin in the toothpaste trick.  My sister Fish Pedicure did this to me a few years ago. It seems so innocuous, but when you squeeze your toothpaste and something brown comes out of it, … it’s alarming in a way that’s difficult to describe.

Just push a raisin into the neck of the toothpaste and squeeze a bit of the toothpaste up so you can’t see it in there.

 

 

11.

Buy some underwear, write a coworker’s name on the elastic band in Sharpie and leave them on the work bathroom floor.

 

Now that you’ve been armed, you have a choice.  Are you going to be part of the 50% that attack on April Fools’ Day or will you be part of the 50% who cower?

I hope that you will attack because I know I didn’t raise a bunch of cowering ninnies.  I’ll be over here cowering in a corner until it’s all over.

    Great choice for April 1.
    If #1 appeals to you but you are without a suitable picture, saran wrap is an alternative choice.

  2. dana says:

    Oh the van is my favorite!!
    I heard a good one-put cream cheese in the deo container! Then loiter closely & watch hubs spread the dairy concoction on his armpits.
    My hubs would be pissed so I dont have the nerve to do it. Mainly bc his precious deo was ruined. He would have gotten a kick out of it about 20yrs ago though.

  3. Barbie says:

    No.1 and No. 4! LOVE IT!
    No.5 could get expensive don’t you think? But LOVEd it!

  4. Elle says:

    I love the first one! LOL!

    Unfortunately for me, I’m going to spend April fools day chaperoning my 13 year old daughter’s classmates on a 3 day school trip to our capital city…. I’m toast!!!
    Any ideas on how to survive (and retaliate) would be welcome (-:

    • Sarah McDonnell says:

      From me 11 year old son; “Unwrap a Baby Ruth and slip it quietly into the bus seat as a kid sits down. Then say semi-quietly ” Is that doodie in your seat?”. ‘Cause having 30 13 year olds scream “DOODIE” at once is hilarious. Also, bring a lot of Silly String.”
      I just report the news.

    • Tracy says:

      My personal favorite for my students is to tell them you brought brownies. Then when they’re all excited pull out the foil covered pan, pull back the foil, and reveal a bunch of Es cut out of brown paper.

    I’m not sure I buy your explanation about missing out on April Fool’s Day tomfoolery, Miss Karen. I think it might have something to do with others EXPECTING you to do something and I think you’re more the ‘I’m gonna’ fool you when you least expect it because it is so much more fun for ME – and that’s what this is all about – not fooling you, but pleasing ME!’ Now, we haven’t met, really, except in the way that all but a few of your faithful blog readers believe we know you as well as if we had met and slept side by side since we were the age of 4 not just in the same room but in the same bed and therefore we know your likes and dislikes and your favs and not so favs – you get it. I don’t know you, yet I know you really, really well.

    See, your blog readers have brains – proof is that if we didn’t we would be found wandering some dark and lonely road some night near the Canadian border whispering your name and asking to be pointed in the general direction of your home and when the Border Patrol told us to ‘Go home, you damn Yankees – go home!’ we would look at them as if they were the ones lost and shuffle away mumbling your name. Instead, your faithful and smart readers know that once we’ve signed up for your blog, we’re in for life – not as in ‘life’ sentence, but a plethora of sentences as in ‘what is she up to now?’

    Because your loyal and faithful followers have brains and I am, therefore, smart enough to determine that I am one of the loyal and faithful followers, I can recall a post last year – after April Fool’s Day but before the end of June – when you treated us to a practical joke you played on old whats’his’name aka The Fella. It involved a flashlight and The Fella becoming so increasingly fearsome in his pleadings for you to stop that I began to be fearful for your safety. In fact, I had to remind myself that you had to be okay because after all you had been the one to post this ridiculously risky episode of “Let’s Watch Karen Fuck with The Fella.”

    So, there’s my reasoning as to why you don’t like April Fool’s Day — too predictable. Nothing predictable about you, my friend, except you are predictably unpredictable. I love you all the more for it.

    As for April Fool’s Day — some of your offerings are good and a couple great. I’ve had some real successes in my day because the people I pulled them on are no longer in my life and that’s a sure sign of a slam dunk April Fool’s joke. My kids, however, are strong and resilient and realized that if they left home they would surely starve and have to rely on themselves for food and shelter. So, they suffered my annual pranks all in good humor and sometimes I scored a bull’s eye with each of them…made my whole year. The easiest and most fun is to keep a small bag of creepy, crawly insects, bugs, snakes made out of rubber. Easy to find in ol’ Dollar store and just keep on hand for the annual day of surprises as well as when a scare during dinner was called for because I needed a good laugh.

    They are especially good to hide in a side salad because the dressing makes them look so much more real and who really ever finds a giant scorpion in their cheeseburger or slice of meatloaf. I also liked to double down every now and then – one creepy, crawly in their salads during dinner – another in the medicine cabinet resting casually behind the toothpaste tube. (Excellent way to determine if their teeth are really being brushed or not, by the way.)

    Love you and love this holiday. Can’t wait to hear from your other readers – add to my arsenal, especially now that the kids have decided it is better to fend for themselves rather than screech through another dinner with their mother laughing hysterically as they leap from their upturned bowl of greens. Besides, I’m old enough now that I’m not only laughing hysterically, but often there is a stream leaking down my leg which makes me laugh even harder and their rosy cheeks become rosier.

    Have a good day, Karen, no foolin’.

    • Karen says:

      I’m sorry … could you repeat that? ~ karen

    • Ruth says:

      *dead*

      @Rhonda – You gave us a glimpse of what is possible in ye olde comments section…. on a day when I’m not even feeling witty enough to join you. Truly a ‘SmartyPants’. LOL!

      I concurred with you, until you got to the part where you scared the heebie-jeebies out of you kids. At that point, I just found myself thanking all of heaven for the mother I had. I doubt my heart would have handled such things. Oh. my. word!

    • julie says:

      Now I want to see that episode of “Let’s Watch Karen Fuck with The Fella”, but I can’t find it when I search!

    • Jenny says:

      This comment has more words than the blog post.

    • Chris says:

      “proof is that if we didn’t we would be found wandering some dark and lonely road some night near the Canadian border whispering your name and asking to be pointed in the general direction of your home”

      Oh my god. I almost peed my pants imagining myself doing this!

    • Stephanie Hobson says:

      Love this comment Rhonda Smartypants!

      Favorite line:

      “I’ve had some real successes in my day because the people I pulled them on are no longer in my life and that’s a sure sign of a slam dunk April Fool’s joke. “

  6. Stephanie says:

    Hahahahah…. even after reading that ENTIRE previous comment, I am still laughing at the voice-activated toaster. The very best pranks lurk at the intersection of Simple and Genius.

  7. Lea says:

    Okay it has been years (many years) but my best April fools prank involved me making cinnamon rolls (you know the one’s that come out of a death can) and spreading mayonnaise on them instead of icing. My dad ate 3. After letting him eat them I couldn’t contain myself and busted up laughing and told him. Needless to say he was pissed because he ate them so I wouldn’t feel bad. Oh the days when you were 13 and could get away with that kind of stuff!!

  8. Ember says:

    April 1st is my cousin’s birthday. I guess that was the ultimate April Fool’s joke from my uncle to my aunt:-)

  9. Susan Preston says:

    One of my favorite days of the year! I’ve had a broken foot twice before but have put on one of my temp. Casts and crutches and gone out that morning just to shake everyone up. Tee hee. Salt in the sugar really screws up that morning coffee too. Looking forward to Tuesday!

    • Mary W says:

      Every single April 1, when we were little, my Dad put salt in the sugar bowl. We all sat down to hot cereal and EVERY SINGLE 4/1, we fell for it. I was 9 years older than my youngest sibling and still fell for it. Needless to say Dad’s kids were not really awake until after breakfast so it continued for years. I never thought to plan ahead just to watch his face but wish I had. So glad you posted this comment as I think this annual salting of the oatmeal memory is a good one to share with my siblings in a short email. Thanks!

  10. Tigersmom says:

    I’m not much of a planner for April Fool’s day due to not being aware of it until the actual day arrives. Then I have to rely on some quick thinking verbal scares. You know, like, “Honey, I took a test this morning…..”

  11. Tigersmom says:

    Oh, and my favorite of the above options is #4. Talk about bang for your buck. It’s the joke that keeps on giving. It would still be a value if you had to go out and buy the new toaster.

  12. I feel lucky to live in the oh-so-polite Pacific Northwest… we don’t do “that” sort of thing here (said in haughty, clutching my pearls voice). Heh, seriously though – the first idea – I would shriek SO LOUDLY! I’m also easily startled and super gullible, so every day is like April Fools for me. Yeah….

  13. A pregnancy test left on the bathroom counter in a positive reading is funny! Especially when your hubbys been neutered. I guess thats just wrong….but it could be funny!

  14. Mary Kay says:

    I work in a construction office so kitty wallpaper is a must!

  15. jainegayer says:

    This is the one day I’m going to miss being at work since I retired. Oh how I loved April Fools Day when I was a first grade teacher! All those little 6 year olds I could trick all day.

  16. Reg says:

    When my son was about 10 yrs. old he pulled a good prank on mom. I was accustomed to having a big pot of coffee when I got home from work and sit down to read the paper. This particular April 1st. I hunted and hunted for the coffee container. It was hidden in my closet. Coffee made, sat down to read the paper. Every other page was turned upside down. He still snickers at the memory of watching me hunt for the coffee and turning newspaper pages.

  17. marilyn says:

    my husbands birthday is april 1..and his brother..and his nephew..and our daughters is march 31..she has never been good at sharing..lol.in the 37 years i have been with this man i have never played an april fools joke on him.i dont know why but i just havent

  18. Jack says:

    My daughter Kelly pulled a good one on me. As was my usual custom each morning I treked to the bathroom to prepare to go to work. My most loving daughter (10 years old at the time) set up our Water-Pic to commence firing volleys of water the moment I turned on the bathroom light as the light and plug-in were on one circuit. The water hit me right between the eyes causing an immediate “flight or flight” response as I stumbled backwards into the wall behind me thinking that sometime terrible had happened with my plumbing. I know she still, at 32 years old, still has a good chuckle over that one.

    • Deb says:

      ok, I started laughing at this one and choked on my coffee. Too funny. I think my favorite that Karen gathered was the toaster (#1 actually startled me when I scrolled to it). I think I like the toaster because I’m the one who is so gullible that I’d be the one trying to get the dang thing toasting by trying different words…”start,” “go,” “toast,” “light toast,” “bagel,” “#*%*&@!”

      • kddomingue says:

        The hubs and I went out of town for a week and my daughter thought it would be a pleasant surprise for us to come home and find the detritus we’d left in our wake all tidied up. So she folded the afghans and swept the floor and put out fresh towels and set up the coffee maker so all we had to do was press start. Then she noticed a few glasses and a couple of coffee cups in the sink so she loaded them in my new dishwasher, added detergent, closed the door and prepared to turn it on……only she couldn’t find buttons or a lever or anything. She says that she looked at it from all angles, even crouching down to feel under the bottom edge. Nothing. Then she says she decided it must be motion activated so she began waving her hands all over the front of it and even did a little dance just in case it needed a LOT of movement to activate it’s on switch. Nope. Nothing. So she says that she then decided it must be voice activated so she started with “on” then turn on, wash cycle, start, start wash cycle, activate wash cycle…..she tried them all in different tones and inflections and added the hand waving back in….nothing. She said that she then found herself shaking her fist at it, trembling in rage and shrieking “Wash the damn dishes you stupid fucking bitch!” at the top of her lungs . Annnnd she decided to leave before she lost her mind and took a hammer to it. She said she’s pretty sure that had anyone seen her, they’d have thought she was a deranged lunatic!

        So as soon as we got home she came over, told us the story and demanded that I show her to turn on the demon spawned, thrice damned machine. Well, as soon as I could manage to stop laughing hysterically I took her into the kitchen, opened the dishwasher and showed her the control panel…..on the top of the door, lol! It was of those sleek, fancy, no visible buttons models. The look on her face was beyond priceless! And it was the best April fool’s day prank that I ever pulled on anyone without ever meaning to!

        • Renee Ryz says:

          Oh that had me cracking up! I have been known to call the washing machine a damn dirt whore, so I really loved it!

    • Noreen McKechnie says:

      That was the funniest I almost had a warm trickle to join the coffee that came out my nose

  19. Jane says:

    I know a teacher who makes up a new seating plan on April 1st. She puts all the worst combinations together. She’s actually had kids in tears until she says April Fools.

  20. Ev says:

    A lot of funny posts here, but how would one get a pregnancy test to read a false positive? Feral Turtle, can you answer? As for you Karen, I think a bunch of your local readers should drop by on that day and demand Antojitos!

  21. Anita says:

    When I was in 1st or 2nd grade we took a family vacation to sunny beach in Florida. My evil mother is reading the paper at breakfast on April 1 and gasps loudly. She then proceeds to tell us that an extreme cold front is coming through and snow is predicted. My younger brother and I were just about in tears. There was serious conversation between the parents about going back home early until my mom just couldn’t contain herself any more and busted out laughing.

    • Mary W says:

      My daughter is taking her family to the beach today for Spring Break – they are so excited. We live in Florida and it’s VERY cold – too cold to swim. Hope they have fun digging in the sand and breathing cold, salted air. Last time this happened, the drink in the car froze overnight in the drink holder and my granddaughter got wind burn on her face from sandy wind while hiding under a blanket on the beach. The sun is shining but enjoying this early April Fool joke on us.

  22. Katie says:

    Every April 1st I wear my clothes inside out. My kids would be eating breakfast and say ” Mommy your clothes are inside out?” April Fool. It worked at work too… People were a little afraid to tell me that I put my shirt on inside out…. but laughed when I said “April Fool”…. Love that holiday….

  23. kelli says:

    Number 5: ain’t nobody got time for dat. NOBODY. 🙂

    these are great, but in this day and age of rampant declining overall health, some of these really might give someone a heart attack! 🙁

  24. Mary Werner says:

    I live with my daughter and am closing in on 68. The best would be for me to come running into her “side” holding a pregnancy tester – no need to even make it a false positive. Just holding it with a look of horror on my face would be enough.

    • kddomingue says:

      Hmmm, I like your style, lol!

      • Mary W says:

        I’m now almost 72, don’t remember writing this and still love to watch my daughter’s face as she reacts so well! I think this ‘new’ idea is great! The joy of getting older is experiencing new stuff all the time – even if it is old stuff I just forgot. Thanks for a laugh this morning!

  25. Debbie says:

    Best one I pulled was during my freshman year of college. I always wrote letters home, as calls were expensive then. I had just told my mom about a guy I met, “Wayne”. On April 1st, I called and told her Wayne and I were engaged! Total silence. Mom was at work and I was told she fell into her chair sweating. “Mom, mom, April Fools!” Every year I called her on April 1st and asked what day it was, and told her I wasn’t engaged. On an April 13th, my husband proposed. I called mom and asked her what day it was. After she fluffed and futzed, she said it was April 13th. I said, “Oh, then I’m engaged!” I think she fell into her chair and started sweating – happy sweat! Over 25 years later, we are all still happy.

  26. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    The toaster one is pure genius!!!!

  27. Vicky says:

    I told my kid he had spots on his face every year for about 15 years. When he quit running to the bathroom to look in the mirror, I quit too.

  28. Jeannie B says:

    I love April Fool’s Day pranks. But, I can’t get the picture out of my head now, of that “head in a jar” in the fridge, from post number 2. But since I live by myself, it would be ME that got the fright when i opened the fridge door to reach for the pickles.

  29. kardan says:

    My best friend was babysitting three children for an entire weekend. I slept over with her on the Saturday night. We were fifteen, there was beer in the fridge, we drank three each. We switched all three kids to different beds while they slept. One of them even got up to pee and went back to his wrong bed. We woke up before them and were so excited. We made breakfast and were all like… just act normal, just act normal. One at a time they made their way to the kitchen for pancakes. None of them mentioned it. We were serving pancakes and trying to muffle our laughter. Finally we asked if they noticed anything different when they woke up. Jason, the oldest one said, “Yeah, I woke up in Carrie’s bed.” We cracked up laughing. They just didn’t even think it was strange. They all just kinda shrugged.

  30. Pam'a says:

    I had recently been treated poorly by a guy I was dating. Driving around on April Fools’s night with a girlfriend, we became convinced that this simply could not stand. I happened to know where the cretin was going to be that evening, so girlfriend and I stopped by a grocery store and picked up two big, fat raw shrimp.

    Back then, you could break into a car with a coat hanger.

    So we did. And we unscrewed his dome light, shoved those suckers in, and put it back together. For all I know, they’re still be there. Heh.

  31. Laura Bee says:

    One of my favourites was not even on April Fool’s Day. Working in a reastaurant – every day is a good day for pranks. One of the girls I worked with noticed the tv in the bar was stuck on the menu. So I told her to reset it with the touch screen. She was up on a chair tapping away at the tv for a good 30 seconds before everyone snickering gave it away.

  32. Susan says:

    A little late for this year but, hey, it’s only 11 1/2 months until the next opportunity!
    I worked in a retirement community. One year some gals snuck into the men’s room and set a pair of women’s shoes in front of a toilet, draped a skirt over the toilet then closed and locked the door. The boss went in, noticed their was a female in the men’s room and asked, several times, if everything was all right. Finally, he came out in a bit of a panic and asked that we call 911 because it looked like someone had died in the men’s room! HE didn’t think it was a bit funny, but we still laugh years later. I guess this would be hard to pull off if there were large openings at the sides of the door.

  33. tube says:

    The liquidator has adequate facilities that aid in this process.
    Unlike other hill stations, this place is not very congested and provides
    a tranquil atmosphere. and hold up my hand if necessary
    to ward off any additional pleas for money.

  34. Marsha says:

    My husband carries a money clip and always keeps a couple of credit cards on the top. One April Fool morning while he was showering I took out the money and replaced it with play money. When he made his daily stop at the donut shop he realized he had been sabotaged. The clerk could not stop laughing and he got mad. I, on the other hand, am still laughing!
    I pulled some good ones on my boys too. They got rubber band sandwiches and Oreos with toothpaste filling in their school lunches one day.

  35. Lizzy says:

    I put google eyes on everything in the fridge. Every. Thing.

    My daughters reactions?
    Priceless!!

  36. Sue says:

    #11 almost makes me wish I weren’t retired . . .

  37. Mark says:

    One time I found a cockroach silhouette that I enlarged slightly then cut out and taped to the inside of a lamp shade.

    Waited until evening. Then hilarity ensured!

  38. Jani Wolfe says:

    I have two that I will confess to doing. There was a male co-worker who was married but quite the Romeo if you know what I mean. He walked past my desk and I told him there was a phone message from some Doctor and he said to tell you that the VD test came out positive. The look on his face was priceless and his eyeballs almost fell on the floor. This was in the day when there was no privacy act HIPPA.
    The other one was another phone message prank. Our local zoo had an elephant named “Mona”. A co-workers wife was also a Mona. So got the message pad out and wrote to call Mona and put the zoo phone number and taped it to his computer. He walks to his desk and sees the note and can’t figure out the phone number and wonders where his wife is. So he calls the number not even paying attention to the person answering the phone that he was calling the zoo. So he asks to speak to Mona and the zoo person is telling him that they don’t have a Mona that works there. So he is getting upset and says hey look I have a message saying to call my wife at this number. The zoo person asks again who he is looking for and he says MONA…..and finally he is told that the only Mona there is the elephant. I think we all peed our pants laughing.

  39. Amy says:

    Two that I have particularly enjoyed:
    1. Rubber cement the coins, cards, and other stuff, either on the desk, or in the lap drawer. Non-destructive, but so satisfying.
    2. Carefully unwrap the little football shaped chocolates in foil wrap. Replace the chocolates in the wrap with your choice of either olives (carefully wiped dry first) or, if you are less evil than me, grapes. Serve as usual.

  40. Melissa says:

    Remember that old school yard chant, “match in the gas tank… Boom Boom”

    It seems like so many of these could sub in:
    * Shark in the toilet… chomp chomp
    * Poop in the toothpaste… oh no
    * Kids in the wrong room… ha ha

  41. Claire Bickley says:

    At our house, we cant believe a holiday as important as April Fool’s Day has to share with Easter.
    #3 and #11 – oh how I love you, #11 – makes me wish I wasn’t working from home.
    My 15-year-old is definitely waking up to a shark in the loo Sunday morning.
    Evil. Genius.

  42. Lori Hope says:

    Every year, for as long as we’ve been married, I’ve short-sheeted our bed for April Fool’s Day. And every year, my very smart husband falls for it.

    A couple of years ago I managed to get possession of his smart phone long enough to install this app that replaced all of his icons with cat heads: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/569072102892512094/

  43. MelissaM says:

    One year I found really good looking “bread” rolls at the dollar store and served them to my family. My son, about 7 at the time, turned his over and found the button on the bottom and said “what’s this?” Also, I was trying not to laugh the whole time.

    My sister did those bake and wrapped in foil ham and cheese sandwiches for her family, but included Peeps. Husband didn’t notice the odd color coming out and ate away.

  44. Domestitch says:

    When my son was 4 he asked me to take him to the grocery store before April Fools because he needed supplies. He picked up a container of whipped cream and mini graham cracker crusts. He said he was going to “get Dad good this year”. On April 1st he snuck down to the kitchen, made his cream pie and quietly walked up to my husband’s side of the bed. I was anxious to see how this was going to play out.
    “Dad? Can you sit up?”
    Husband groggily folds up right into the pie our kid held up in the perfect position.
    Long pause. Son suddenly realizes Dad might be pissed.
    Hubby laughs so hard and says, “That was a good one! It’s on!”

    And that is how April Fools Day became one of our top holidays.

    I am totally printing the shark today.

  45. Mary W says:

    Thanks for the great shark picture! I’ll certainly do this for the kids toilet, but not on 4/1. My most successful trick was doing nothing but saying to my son-in-law – I’m so sorry someone keyed your new truck. Did it happen at school? Then quickly asking how he would fix it – paint, touch up, etc. He looked at me, never said a word, then ran outside to look. I laughed so hard. I don’t normally play 4/1 tricks so this year I’m just going to have a giant smile on my face all day, as if I knew something that the rest of them didn’t know. They will be expecting something and looking for it all day. Best joke ever – I’m not going to do anything, again.

  46. Ev Wilcox says:

    when my kids were in middle school & high school I put a sandwich size piece of saran wrap in their sandwiches. They were not happy…sigh.

    The comments made me lau harder than your blog and it needed a Kleenex. The only really good (I thought ) trick I played on my daughter was to replace one of the asparagus in her rolled sandwiches with a rubber worm. She thought it was hilarious and made her whole class sick by telling them her mom had used a real worm!

    I’ve made caramel covered onions for the family in place of caramel apples. It was funny but the best prank was the fake cat turds. I microwaved chocolate & peanut butter together. Stirred it up & put it in a ziplock bag with the corner cut off. Squirted it out & shaped it into cat turdesque shapes. I have 2 boys & each have there own bedroom. Each boy got a “turd” on his pillow. I patiently waited for them to come home from school. My older boy realized the prank first & decided to have some fun with his younger brother. When my youngest found the “turd” on his pillow he started to holler. The older son came in to investigate, picked up the “turd” and took a bite of it! The look of horror/disgust on my younger son’s face was PRICELESS! I laughed so hard, I cried.
