April Fool's Pranks

Happy April Fool's Day! Ha, Ha. Gotcha. April Fool's Day isn't until Wednesday, but here are some fun April Fool's Pranks and recipes to get you started.

Colorful CupcakesFamily Fun has tons of awesome ideas for recipes and family friendly pranks for your kids. Don't these cupcakes look delicious? I am totally using this recipe for the meatloaf and mashed potato cupcakes! I will tell my family we are eating dessert first for a fun switcheroo until they bite in to it...He he!
Then, we will dig into the "hamburgers" which are actually made from brownies, donuts, Jell-o and more. Don't they look awesome?! I have been waiting for a good day to try this recipe for over a year! Get the recipe from Good Things Utah. How cute would this be with the Faux French Fries from Family Fun?! This is way too much fun!
Baked Potato Ice Cream SundaesI may try this Baked Potato Ice Cream Sundae recipe from Martha Stewart next year. I am lovin' the tricky food prank recipes!
If I get really devious I may try this little water trick on my hubby since my little one is too young to understand. Wouldn't it be funny as he goes to brush his teeth in the morning?! See more of Martha's ingenious April Fool's pranks here.


April Fool Zone
has a bunch of funny ideas. I love this one.
Forgetful
Tape magnets to the bottom of an empty coffee cup, and attach it to the top of your car. Laugh at all the people who frantically try to get your attention as you drive by.

or for the office try this one...

Mouse Trap
Take a Post-It note and place it over the eye of the victim’s optical mouse. When the victim tries to use his or her computer, the cursor won’t move. Be sure to write “April Fools!” on the note! (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.)

Ok, now it's time to have some fun! What do you have planned? Let me in on any funny pranks or recipes you have! I love a good laugh!

Oh, and Happy Birthday to the biggest Fool I know, Becky! She was born on good ol' April Fools and will be turning 30 this year. (April Fools! I guess you can have one more year!)
