Best April fools Jokes for Kids

This only works if your child’s birthday isn’t April 1st. Hang some birthday banners, blow up some balloons and as soon as they wake up, greet them by saying, “Happy Birthday!” Once you have carried on the Birthday wishes for a bit during breakfast just start singing “Happy April Fools Day to you..”

Frozen Breakfast

Frozen breakfast is a classic April Fools joke for kids. You will want to prepare your child’s breakfast the night before, milk and everything and then put it in the freezer overnight. 

Then in the morning, you will want to get it out of the freezer without them seeing and set it on the table with a spoon. Your child is guaranteed to take a big spoonful of cereal only to not be able to because it is frozen. They will be baffled and you will just be sitting back laughing at this April Fools Day trick. 

April Fools Jokes Perfect for Kids to Do

These April Fools Jokes for Kids are perfect for kids to play on anyone they find! 

Flickering Light bulbs

For your child to be able to pull off this April Fools joke it will take the help of a much older sibling (or a mom who is an active participant)! We will want to purchase flickering light bulbs and replace your normal light bulbs with them. Your parents will be puzzled when they wake up and the lights are flickering. Just be sure to pick the most commonly used lights in the house to switch out. 

Key Swap

The key swap is a great trick for kids to do on April Fools Day. 

What your child will want to do is to take their parent’s keyrings and switch their mom’s keys to their dad’s keyring and vise versa. Parents will be so confused when they get to their car with their key ring and they realize they can’t unlock their doors or even start them. 

Honk and Wave

Kids love to embarrass their parents and this April Fools joke could last most of the day! Your child can make a sign that says, “Honk and wave” and then put it on the back of the car. 

Then when their mom or dad goes to work they will be getting honked and waved at the whole day. Moms and dads everywhere will be so confused why they are being honked at all day long. 

Toilet Paper Surprise

Best April fools Jokes for Kids

This is a prank a kid can pull off but won’t actually be able to witness but can surely listen from outside the bathroom door. 

What you will want to do is to take the toilet paper that is on the roll and tape it down so the toilet paper won’t unroll as your parents try to unroll it while using the toilet. You will hear them so frustrated wondering why they can’t get the toilet paper to come off!

TV Mix Up

What kid won’t love watching their dad struggling at the end of the day to get the T.V. to turn on to watch his favorite sports game? Take the remotes and switch them up in different rooms. This is a perfect April Fools joke for kids to do.

Battery Hunt

This is similar to the TV Mix Up but will not disappoint in the reaction that you will get from your parents. Start thinking about all the rooms in your house and what has batteries. 

Then go around and take all the batteries out of those items including clocks, wireless mouse, remotes, and then hide the unused batteries. They will be so confused as to why nothing has batteries anymore and why they can’t find new ones to replace the missing ones.
