April Fool’s Jokes for Kids to Play on Parents

Tons of April Fool's Jokes for Kids to Play on their Parents

 

It’s that time of year again!  We usually prank our kids, but my daughter came to me a couple weeks ago and wants to get her dad.  Since I was coming up with some ideas for her, I thought I would share them with y’all! These April Fool’s jokes are for kids to play on parents…that means you or their other parent with your help.  Have fun!

Younger Kids:

1. Put a rubber band around the sink sprayer and let your parents wash their hands. Stand near by to watch their reaction. But beware of cleaning up the water that didn’t get them!

2.  Put a rubber band around the push button of the spray nozzle (the kind with a hose) so the button stays down. Point it forward. When your parent uses the sink they will get a wet surprise!

3. Set parent’s alarm clock for the middle of the night and hide it somewhere in the room where they will have to get up and scramble around to turn it off.

4. Move the time on your parent’s clock up an hour.  Best done after your parents have gone to bed.

5. If your parents have a traditional phone with a hook that presses down when the handset is in the cradle, tape it down. When they answer a call it will keep ringing.

6. Take a piece of tape and place it over the eye of your parent’s optical mouse. When they try to use their computer, the cursor won’t move.  (Note if they have a standard mouse, you can perform the same trick by taping a piece of paper over the ball underneath the mouse.)

7.  Make a sandwich for your parents, but don’t remove the wrapper from the slice of cheese. When they bite down they’ll get a chewy surprise.

8. Stuff some cotton into the toes of your parents’ shoes. They will think their feet grew or their shoes shrank.

9. Take all the cereal in the house, remove the plastic bags from the boxes, and switch them around. When your parents try to eat breakfast they will do a double-take when the wrong cereal pours out.

10. Get up a bit earlier than your parent and take the cell phone and tape it underneath their chair at the kitchen table.  Then, when they are eating breakfast, call their cell phone and watch the reaction.  They will look everywhere for that phone and will not think of looking under the kitchen chair!

11. Sneak into Dad’s  underwear drawer and safety pin all of his undies together side by side. When he pulls out one pair, they all come out!

12. Take a screenshot of the desktop on Dad’s computer, and leave the image open. Let him freak out for a few minutes, believing the computer is frozen.

13. Swap out sugar for salt and watch Dad put it in his morning cup of coffee. (Be nice and have a second, non-salted cup ready to go though).

14. Get some clear plastic wrap and completely cover a door way. Be sure your around to see the face as your mom or dad walks into it.

Older Kids (Teens):

1. Clean the house and do the dishes. Fill the car with gas and wash it.

2. Cover car with hundreds of post it notes.

3. Take the top sheet off parents’ bed, and tuck the bottom end under the top end of the mattress. Pull it down and then fold it back up so that the top end is where it would be if the bed was made normally. Replace the pillow, blanket, etc., and make up the bed like it was before. When your parents get into bed, they’ll be surprised when they can’t slide their feet all the way down to the bottom of the bed!

4. Buy a package of “hair extensions” that match your parent’s hair. (Look for inexpensive ones in the hair accessory section of a drug store or grocery store.) Snip some strands about the length of your parent’s real hair and spread it around on their pillow while they are asleep. They will wake up to a real fright!

5. Buy a pack of underwear that matches those that your parent usually wears, but make sure they are one or two sizes too small. Wash them a few times so they don’t look new. When your parent puts them on, on April 1st, they will think they’ve put on a few too many pounds.
