Prank ringtones

Is that my phone ringing? Your teen, friend or hubby will know the joke is on them when their normal ring tone is switched out to a Chipmunk Fart, the Minion Song, a dog barking or whatever obnoxious ring your decide on. Check out the full selection of funny ringtones on Zedge.

Swap juice for JELL-O!

Turn their juice into JELL-O or gelled juice! Instead of serving their normal juice, make JELL-O in their regular juice glasses or cups. Place a straw in the cup for an added effect. Serve it to them with a straight face — and have fun watching their looks of disbelief as they try to drink their "juice" without success.

Wacky Wednesday

Dr. Seuss Wacky WednesdayRemember the Dr. Seuss book Wacky Wednesday, in which a child wakes up to find her house completely wacky? The story goes, "It all began with that shoe on the wall. A shoe on a wall…? Shouldn't be there at all!" Turn your house into Wacky Wednesday for April Fools' Day by hanging a shoe on the wall, place their toothbrushes in a vase, turn pictures upside down or hang bananas from the ceiling fan.

The ol' food switcheroo

"My mother played an April Fool joke on my older brother who was in middle school. She packed him a sandwich in his lunch bag. When he bit into the sandwich he found a folded piece of paper where the meat should have been," Nancy Quinn says. "Written on the paper were the words April Fool in bright red letters! He also found some dollar bills folded into the paper so he could buy his lunch. Good thing he did not bite into the money!"

Have fun with food this April Fools' Day by making things like Chocolate "broccoli" cookies, Refilled Oreos and "Fried egg" breakfast.

Put a few drops of food coloring in your kids' milk and serve it in a glass or in their cereal — and try to keep a straight face — as they look at their blue, green or red milk.

Will curiosity get the best of them?

Place a bowl upside down with a sign above it that reads, "Do not move bowl unless you plan to kill what's underneath it. Thanks" — and watch what they do. (See the picture of the prank here) Will they turn it over? Move it around? Or be too freaked out to do anything? What is under their bowl doesn't matter (although you can always put a fake bug or even a piece of candy!); however, their reaction to it will be priceless.

Parlez-vous francais?

Change the language on your kid's or husband's computer or phone to a foreign language — and watch them scratch their head in disbelief!
