Find your kids a gross looking FAKE bug and let them pick where to place it. Your husband or wife will really be in for a shock if they find it in the shower or in their lunch! We have a few creepy crawlers at Hobby and Toy Central that will do the trick. For an even better reaction, let your kids get your husband a drink and add this Bar Bug ice cube to it!

The Bouncy Surprise

Your kids will love preparing for this one. Well your husband or wife is sleeping, get the kids up for a late night mission. Collect all the balls in the house - big, little, you name it! Stuff them all into your closet. In the morning your husband or wife will get more than they bargained for when they go to pick out an outfit.

The Honker

Make your spouse’s drive to work more eventful by sticking a homemade bumper sticker on the car. Get your kids to make a sticker that says something along the lines of "Honk at me!!! - April Fools' Dad".

The Invisible Wall

This trick is a classic and never gets old. Get your kids to plastic wrap a doorway while your spouse is sleeping. For best results, plastic wrap doorways he/she passes through when they just wake up - the bedroom or bathroom door. Careful though, pranking this early may result in a prank war!

The Can You Do This?

This is another classic trick aired in the popular TV show "Friends". Colour the rim of a quarter with a lead pencil. Grab another quarter. Get your kids to show your partner how they can roll the quarter from their forehead to their chin without it leaving their face. See if he/she can do the same, but give them the lead coloured quarter. Your partner will be shocked when they look in the mirror and there is a line on their face!

The Faux Lunch

Get your kids to pack your husband a lunch. He will think it is awfully kind, but will be shocked when he finds a pack full of fake food!

The Spoiled Milk

Die the milk a strange colour with food dye. Your kids will love the dyeing process and your partner will be shocked when he/she goes to add milk to their morning coffee!
