I love playing April Fools pranks on my kiddos. It’s just a good excuse to have some fun at home and give everyone a good giggle.
Of course, we only like to play pranks that don’t hurt anyone’s feelings and aren’t terribly messy or complicated.
These kids pranks are perfect for little ones and simple for mom and dad to accomplish.
