Here are some fun (harmless) tricks to play this April Fools Day:
  • Switch the salt with sugar and then watch your family's and friend's faces when they try their food! Just make sure they have something they eat salt with, and that you've cooked some extra food.
  • Ask your victim, er.. friend to put a quarter on a piece of paper and, without removing their finger, trace the coin with a pencil. Repeat the "test" with a few fingers. After that's done, get the victim to pick up the quarter and roll it along the bridge of their nose. Then quietly snicker behind their back as they walk around with a black line along their nose. Don't use a permanent marker that's just not cool.
  • If you have a sink with a sprayer put a rubber band around the handle when nobody's looking. This automatically keeps the nozzle in spray-mode. Make sure the nozzle is pointing up and outward. The next person to use the sink will get a splash! (Tracy's daughter did this to her last year)
  • If your milk comes in a cardboard container, add a few drops of food coloring. It's a harmless April Fool's joke but the results are pretty colorful.
  • Take the ball out of the computer mouse. Wait till someone tries to use the computer and watch their reaction.

I love all the good ideas...now if my kids were a little older I might try a couple of those. :-) Have a great day and hopefully don't get fooled too much!

Konnichiwa in Japanese means Hello or Good day. And aren't all the scrambled letters the same thing, April fools?

I hate April Fool's Day, but that is because everyone thinks it should be their job to FOOL ME!!

Ok that took me a bit to get... But I finally figured it out.

But Babel fish says one thing and Igoogle says something else. So are you going to let us know what it is??
