15 ideas for April Fools
So I suggest some ideas for a funny April Fool!
I share with you a memory of April Fools that has come to my mind every year for at least 30 years! In my day, in elementary schools, we were given a carton of milk every day. A representative from each class had to take a basket and pick up the cartons in the cafeteria to give to everyone. In that year, this program was withdrawn. On April 1, a message from the director tointercom told us that we would have a carton of milk that day. So one of us went to get our cartons with the basket as before… and came back empty-handed! Only a paper fish signed S. Turgeon (Esturgeon) (note that the director’s name was S. Turgeon). What a disappointment for our 4th year class!
The bag of crisps
Take a bag of crisps, open it gently from the bottom, empty it and replace the crisps with something else (popcorn, cheese, fruit, vegetables), then close with double-sided tape.
The health hickey
Take a hickey stick and plant it in broccoli, radish, grapes … and wrap it all in colored tissue paper and wait for the reaction!
The fridge that watches
Glue moving eyes on everything in the fridge, a pretty funny surprise for the little ones!
Cut a banana into a slice by making holes with a toothpick without removing the peel. Imagine the surprise when your children take their bananas!
The bottle of Ketchup
Take an empty Ketchup bottle, paint the inside with red paint up to about half. Watch your family try to pour this condiment! And why not cut apple sticks and make it look like French fries?
At bath time
Take a cotton ball and soak it with food coloring to scrub the inside of the tap, to create a surprise when someone turns on the bath water!
For electronic life
A capricious remote control
Put a little transparent tape on the « magic eye » of the remote control. Alternatively, remove the batteries from the remote control and replace them with paper fish.
Another time change
Move the time back from all the dials in the house and enjoy a morning with your family!
Change the wallpapers of the whole family’s electronic devices (computers and phones or tablets) with embarrassing photos (naked baby in the bath, dad and mom who are crazy, etc.)
Put a new password on anything that can be locked!
Stick a piece of sticky on the microphone part of the phone, it will be necessary to speak very loud so that people understand us.
I’ve grown up again!
Fill all the shoes in the house with newspaper.
Fill the bathroom with balloons and wait for someone to go!
Cover the bathroom mirror post-it and write a message below to be forgiven.
The sticky trap
While someone is in the bathroom, put a wide sticky tape from one edge to the other of the door, the sticky side towards the door. When the person comes out, they will stick their forehead on it.
