April Fool's Day Pranks for Kids

It's April Fool's Day!

Today's the day, so there's not a lot of prep time left! Here are a few April Fool's Day Pranks for Kids that you can do in a snap:

Colorful Cereal: Be super nice and pour cereal into the bowl for someone. But first, put four drops of food coloring in the bottom of the bowl. Don't pour on the milk, let them do that. When the milk is added, it will mix with the food coloring and create a colorful surprise!

Brown Es: Cut out the letter E from brown construction paper. Do a whole bunch! Then put them on a cookie tray and put it in the oven. Don't turn the oven on! Tell your family and friends you made brown Es. They'll be expecting brownies, of course, and it may take them a minute or two to get the joke. But we can guarantee they'll want to play the trick on someone else!

Battery-Free Remote: It doesn't get any easier than this! Take the batteries out of the TV remote and replace the little door so it looks just like it did before. The next person who tries to turn on the TV will be very, very confused!

Can you think of some more April Fool's Day pranks? Be creative, be kind, and above all, be silly!

And if you love to laugh, take a look at art by one of our favorite artists, Sarah Lowe. She paints dinosaurs on bikes and all sorts of silly circus scenes. Have fun, and Happy April Fool's Day!


*Here's some news we're really proud of. babycubby.com dedicated a recent blog entry to our Mini Framed Canvas Art. They said they're "going CRAZY for" some of our pieces, which is perfect, because we're just crazy for the terrific parenting advice The Baby Cubby shares. Thanks, Baby Cubby!
