I appreciate a good prank. I enjoy playing a prank and I enjoy being pranked….as long as the prank is harmless. I’ve played pranks on roommates, co-workers, friends and, of course, my children. This year I’m planning on playing a harmless April Fools’ Day prank on my kids for breakfast. Shhh, don’t tell them.
This is a super easy and harmless April Fools’ Day prank that will get your target first thing in the morning at breakfast when the least suspect a prank. It uses items you probably already have at home.
Please make sure that you only try these pranks if you do not have young children in the house or anyone who would not understand that they are being pranked. Do not play this prank if the person might try to eat the cereal with the trinkets.
Harmless April Fool’s Day Prank
Start with your target’s favorite box of cereal. Remove the cereal to a clean container and replace the cereal with beads. Add about a cup of the cereal on top of the beads in the box to camouflage your prank just in case your target looks into the box before pouring.
Other prank items you can use:
- paper clips
- LEGO blocks
- play figurines
- hair clips
Add a some food coloring to your milk carton and you get harmless April Fool’s Day prank number 2. The surprise works best if your milk carton or jug is opaque so they don’t expect green milk until it’s pouring into their glass or bowl.
Pranking first thing in the morning works great because people are still foggy and waking up. What a fun way to start April Fool’s Day – with a harmless April Fool’s Day prank or two.
