April Fools’ Day isn’t a holiday, but it’s a day that is celebrated in many countries including here in the UK. It’s a day for fun and for playing practical jokes on one another, the kind of day Dennis the Menace and Gnasher love! If you have a fan of Dennis the Menace, the Beano or of playing pranks we have collected a few jokes you can teach your youngster (or pull on them yourself) if you’re up for a bit of a giggle.
A Savoury Cupcake
Place cut up cooked sausages and a spoonful of baked beans in the bottom of some cupcake cases and cover them with some mash potato, previously coloured with food dye. Bring out the tray full of delicious looking cupcakes for the family, yummy! Let everyone take one off the plate and then watch as they discover they aren’t cupcakes at all…
You can’t beat the classics, so why try? Take a whoopee cushion to school or work with you and put it under the chairs of as many people as possible throughout the day. Or simply have fun with it in the home; it never fails to make people laugh!
There’s a Worm in my Apple!
This is a great prank to play on all the family. All you need is an apple and a few chewy wiggly worms for your local sweet store. Carefully poke a hole in the apple and push the sweet inside, and then cover the hole opening with a bit of the apple you cut out so it looks complete. It’s a bit tricky to do but it’s worth it. The person who bites into the apple gets a bit of a shock when they bite into it, but it’s a good shock as they get a sweet treat to go with their healthy snack!
Empty the salt and peppers and fill them up with sugar and cinnamon. Now get the camera ready so you can capture the faces of your family as they taste flavours they weren’t expecting!
When everyone is asleep go around the home and put all the clocks forward an hour but make sure your alarm is set for the right time so no one is late for work or school! Wake up the family exclaiming that you’re all running late and they need to hurry up! Watch everyone panic that they are late the panic and the relief unfold when you reveal it was just an April Fools’ prank.
