April Fools Pranks- Harmless Pranks to Play on Your Family


Well here comes April Fools Day! Are you planning on playing any April Fools pranks? 

April Fools Pranks

I love me some good old April Fools pranks! Seriously, LOVE them! However, I am not a fan of the ones that people play that hurt people or play on people in a negative way! I am all for harmless April Fools pranks! 

Last year I fooled a bunch of people! Seriously, it was my best year for April Fools pranks!

I did MOST of my April Fools pranks to the hubby!  He is so much fun to prank! His reactions are the best! 

5 Harmless April Fools Pranks

The Broken Remote Use a piece of tape to cover the sensor on all the remotes in the house. When someone tries to turn on the TV they will have a heck of a time getting the remote to work. It is also the kind of prank that can get someone for quite a while, fussing with the functions etc. As long as you can hold back your giggles, you will have quite the lengthy spectacle. 

The Spanish Teacher- If you get a chance to grab a hold of your significant other’s cell phone (or anyone you want to prank’s phone), change the language to Spanish or any other language. 

The Car Sign- Attach a large sign to your target’s vehicle that reads something like this: “Honk, Wave, Yell Hi (place Name Here)! He doesn’t know this is here! Happy April Fools!” Make sure you attach the sign somewhere they won’t see it right away like the bumper.

The Cereal Bowl- Put a couple drops of food colouring in the bottom of a cereal bowl and pour the cereal over top. When the kids, your hubby, the neighbour, pours their milk in, they will get a colourful surprise.

Time Traveler- Switch all the clocks in the house ahead by 2 hours. When your family realizes they are up 2 hours early… surprise them with a breakfast date!

I hope everyone enjoys their April Fools Pranks! What are your favorite April Fools Pranks?

    Haha these are some great ideas…though if someone made me get up 2 hours early I wouldn’t be a happy camper…I’m a bit of a bear when it comes to early mornings :0

    These are awesome. I would hate the time travel one because I love sleep. Haha BUT I am going to try the remote one this evening. Gotta do at least one prank today!
