April Fool's day Crafts and Pranks.

April Fool's Day is almost here, are you ready? 

I have always loved Fool's Day & when I was a kid I though it was the coolest thing that I can mess with people and and I couldn't get in trouble, it was even encouraged in my house! 

Common pranks in my house growing up was doing weird things with food, gluing things to each other or down, buckets or bags of water over doors (those never ended well), popping out to scare people, clear finger nail polish on soap so it doesn't lather, a few white lies, setting the clocks back or forward... the list goes on and on.

 My favorite prank that I bring back every few years is the glitter towel! It's great on guys, I sent my brothers to school a few times cover in glitter and half the time they didn't notice till they are out the door in the sun.I have been dying to get my boyfriend with this one but I know he could kill me if I sent him to work covered in glitter... I think I'll do his hand towel this year.

Here are a few cute Fool's Day crafts to give a try, I will be making the  fish sticks for a few people this year.

Doughnut Seeds!

 I did these when I was a kid.

"Sponge" Cake

My mom got me and my little sister with this one one year.
 
What you will need:
Markers, New kitchen sponges, Canned frosting, & Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Use a marker to draw large circles on new kitchen sponges, then cut out the circles.
  2. Stack and frost them (we used inexpensive canned frosting). Cover the sides with sprinkles, if you like.
  3. Tell your victims that you "made a sponge cake," and invite them to cut off a piece. To help ease the prank's sting, serve real cake afterward.

Faux Fish Sticks Cookies

I am going to make enough of these and give them to a few people, I love the peas!
What you will need:
Cornflakes, Sugar wafer cookies, Peanut butter, Green taffy candy ( used green apple AirHeads in picture), & Seedless strawberry jam.
Instructions
  1. For the fish sticks, place a couple of handfuls of cornflakes in a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Cover 2 sugar wafer cookies with peanut butter, then toss them in the cornflake crumbs to coat.
  2. For the peas, tear off and roll small pieces of the taffy candy into balls. If the taffy is too stiff to work with, microwave it for about 6 seconds.
  3. For the ketchup, use a fork to stir a few teaspoons of the jam until it's smooth.

Happy April Fool's Day!

    1. I haven't done much either for Fool's Day in the past few years either. My boyfriend is not a fan... I'm going to do the fish sticks though, they are harmless :)

    1. It's kinda messy... If the towels are folded in the bathroom it is neater but ours are just on the shower door so some glitter falls to the floor. If it is folded just dump some glitter in the middle of the towel then pound it or rub it in some so it doesn't just fall everywhere when the person picks it up. If it is hanging rub some glitter maybe on both sides and hang it back up slowly so the glitter doesn't fall everywhere. Try to use the very fine glitter that is a matching color of the towel so they don't notice it till it too late!

  4. I remember in High School we "sold" the school. One of the kids parents was in real estate and helped us out with the for sale sign and the local paper got in on the act and published a full page in the real estate section. Funniest thing was the phones were ringing in the office all day!
    Unfortunately I don't prank anymore, I have a daughter named April and it's not her favourite day of the year, although I could be tempted by the fish sticks!
