Are you a prankster? I like to trick people and pull the occasional prank but I am by no means a master prankster. Every April 1st my girls wait for me to say “OH! Look! An elephant is in the yard.”. It is the same lame joke every April’s Fools Day. I love seeing them roll their eyes and sigh with that “Oh mom…” look on their faces. I think this April’s Fools Day I am going to put in some effort. The best part is that they will not see it coming. Here are my top 3 ideas.
Thinking of serving this one to the kiddos for April Fools Day lunch. Heehee. Can’t wait to see their faces when they try to take a sip of this April Fool’s Day Fruit Punch!
April Fool’s Fruit Punch Ingredients
Watermelon flavored gelatin (3 oz. package) – any brand
1 C. boiling water
1 C. cold water
plastic drinking straws (optional)
Boil the 1 C. of water and stir in the 3 oz. package of gelatin until dissolved. Add in the 1 C. of cold water and stir.
Pour into glasses and add straws (optional). Place in fridge to set depending on the size of your glass it will take up to 3 hours. (glasses shown are 16 oz.)
(1) package of gelatin makes (2) 16 oz. glasses or (4) 4 oz. glasses.
Eating Mayo from the Jar
Package of Vanilla Pudding
A BIG Spoon
Thoroughly clean out the mayonnaise jar. Make vanilla pudding as per package instructions. Place pudding in jar and place in the fridge. Play our the joke by saying something like “I am so hungry… but there is nothing to eat.”. Pull out the pre-made jar of Mayo and dig in.
Ruari really sells it doesn’t she? I spotted this photo in my facebook feed and I always remembered it. Mom Coleen from Snipits of me explains that a friend was coming to visit. Knowing the friends dislike of mayonnaise the pranking mother-daughter team set this up prior to the friends visit. Apparently the friend was almost physically ill seeing this child chowing down. Now THAT is a great sign of a fabulous prank. Great job Coleen!
This pranking duo is a not a one time thing. They have been known to replace the yummy center of Oreos with toothpaste. If you are visiting Ruari and Coleen be cautious! This pranking duo does not only prank on April’s Fools Day. How fun is that?
I would love to hear your successful pranks. What was your best practical joke? Keep it PG! 🙂
