11 April Fools Day Pranks
1. Frozen cereal
This is my all time favorite prank for kids. It’s easy, not messy, and tricks them every time. All you need to do is pour a bowl of cereal and stick it in the freezer over night. Don’t forget the spoon!
2. Brown E’s
All you need to do for this brownie prank is cut a few letter “E”‘s out of brown construction paper. I taped a 7 E’s to the bottom of our usual brownie pan and put the lid on it. My kids were not amused, but I thought it was hilarious!
3. Bacon and eggs
These meat loaf donuts complete with beet tinted mashed potato “icing” is sure to get a giggle! Find the details at Rosy Cheeks.
5. Meat Loaf Cake
Instead of meatloaf donuts, consider making a meatloaf cake for an April Fool’s Day dinner. The meatloaf cake even has a Worcestershire glaze between each layer. Yum? Find more at Black Widow Bakery.
6. Kitty Litter Cake
The kitty litter cake wins the grossest April Fools Day prank in my book. German chocolate kitty cake, anyone? Find the kitty litter cake tutorial at Kristian Hoffman.
7. Spaghetti and Meatballs
8. Grilled cheese
This is another dinner idea turned desert that actually looks delicious. Instead of bread and cheese, she uses pound cake and frosting! For the complete fake out grilled cheese and tomato soup recipe, check out Nellie Bellie.
9. Ice Cream Sundaes
10. Faux Can of Fruit
11. Kentucky Fried Chicken Dessert
The fake chicken legs are easier to make than you think! All you need are pretzel rods, mini marshmallows, Rice Krispies, and bran cereal! Find the full tutorial at Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons.
