Now are you ready for some suggestions for April Fools Day jokes to play on your kiddos?
#1 Cover the sensor on the TV remote control with a piece of clear tape. Then watch as your child tries over and over again to turn on the TV.
#2 Sprinkle a little salt on your children's toothbrushes the night before and then have a good laugh when you watch them brush their teeth in the morning! Totally safe and harmless fun!
#3 Add a baggy full of dog bones to your little one's school lunch bag. This is one of my favorites and always gets a laugh from the other kids seated at the table.
#4 In keeping with the lunch theme, include a fake critter such as a plastic mouse or spider in your child's lunch bag. You can purchase a variety of plastic bugs or animals at your local Dollar General or Dollar Tree stores.
#5 MarthaStewart.com suggests adding food coloring to your carton of milk. Watch the surprise reaction when you pour the dyed milk on your little one's breakfast cereal or serve a glass with a snack after school! Too funny!

#6 Put a large fake spider beneath the toilet seat. You will hear definitely hear a loud scream followed by laughter when your kiddo lifts the seat in the morning!
#7 Another favorite prank from KidsActivitiesBlog.com is to carefully (so you don't wake them) draw eyebrows, scars, beards, and mustaches on the kiddos' faces while they sleep. They will be shocked when the look in the mirror in the morning! From personal experience, do not use a permanent marking pen! Liquid eyeliner, eyebrow pencils, or other removable makeup will do the job for you!

#8 Leave a surprise creature (plastic of course!) in the mailbox and ask one of your kids to bring in the mail. Be sure to have your camera ready!
#9 My all-time favorite prank is to set the clocks ahead an hour or two so everyone gets up early. When the kiddos realize the time is off take them to a surprise breakfast before school. Makes a great start to April Fools Day!
