How To Prank Your Parents For April Fools Day

Robyn Marks 50 days ago

It’s April Fools Day and you may be wondering how to prank your Mum and Dad. Don’t worry, we’ve got you! Explore our hilarious prank ideas below that parents won’t see coming. We can’t guarantee that you won’t get grounded…

Spy On Them

Spy glasses

Want to impress the grown-ups with your super eyesight? As much as parents like to think they have eyes at the back of their heads, now you do, too… That’s right, pop on your Super Spy Glasses to see forwards and backwards at the same time. Without turning around, you can know exactly what Mum or Dad are up to - and they won’t know how you’ve done it!

The Stuffed Shoe

Grab your parents’ favourite pair of shoes and stuff them with cotton balls (not too many, as they need to be out of sight). When they put their shoes on they’re going to wonder why they’re so small and tight all of a sudden.

UFO In The House

Schylling lunar launcher

Watch out for the unidentified flying object in the house! Where on earth did the disks come from? The Lunar Launcher is a classic space launcher that makes disks fly up to 65 feet (19.8m) away. Pull the trigger to shoot away - your parents will be scratching their heads as to where the soft disks have come from. Notify me when in stock.

Egg Switch

Pretend egg

For an egg-cellent prank, why not switch up the eggs in your parents’ fridge for fake ones? Our realistic boiled eggs play food are made from smooth wood and are coloured in a beige hue - just like the real thing. Watch as one of your family members tries to cook a fake egg. Or if someone has got egg & soldiers for breakfast, get a grown-up to help switch the real egg with a pretend one. 

Fresh Brownies

Tell your parents that you’ve made some ‘fresh brownies’. Whilst they start to salivate about the thought of chomping into a freshly baked brownie, present them with a tray full of brown paper letter ‘E’s. Fresh brown ‘E’s - get it?!

Exploding Mat

Want to see Mum or Dad have a shock? Place some bubble wrap under a rug or bathmat (ideally in the morning) and watch as the unexpected noise rudely wakes them up and makes them jump. 

Fake Away

Schylling NeeDoh noodlies

If your family like to order in takeaways, how about some fluorescent noodles? These colourful elastic noodles come in a takeaway noodle box that looks just like regular takeaway cartons. The noodles can be pulled, knotted, stretched, squeezed and mushed for noodly fun. Just make sure Mum or Dad don’t actually eat them! Notify me when in stock.

Salty Sugar

Do your parents drink a lot of tea and coffee? Sweet can quickly turn to sour if you swap the sugar for salt! Watch as loved ones screw their faces up in disgust at their salty, sour hot drink.

Loud Noise

Schylling kazoo

Make your parents jump out of their skin! Hide behind a door or piece of furniture and blow as hard as you can into a classic tin kazoo. You can even hide away and hum mysterious tunes, leaving your family wondering where the noise is coming from. Notify me when in stock.

Happy pranking!
