April Book of the Month

When you think April and books what’s your 1st thought? April Fool’s Day of course!


How fun is it to celebrate April Fools’ Day with Fun Pranks!

When I was a teacher  on April 1st, people around our school loved to celebrate April Fools’ Day! This annual event dates back centuries and is celebrated by playing pranks or jokes on friends and family. While some may think that April Fools’ Day is a silly holiday, it can be fun for everyone involved as long as you keep your pranks harmless! Whether you are a mom, kid or teacher looking for some prank ideas, here are some fun ways to celebrate April Fools’ Day.


Flour Bombs
One of the most classic April Fool’s Day pranks is throwing flour bombs at each other. All you need is an old pillowcase and a bag of flour and you are ready to go! Fill up the pillowcase with the flour and tie it shut. Then have your friends stand in front of an open doorway or window so they are easy targets. Just make sure to yell “April Fools!” when you throw it so they know it was just a joke. Plus, the mess can be easily cleaned up with a broom and dustpan.


Fake Spills
Another fun prank idea for April Fool’s Day is to create fake spills all over someone’s room. All you need is some white glue and food coloring (or liquid watercolors). Mix these together in a bowl until you get your desired color then pour it onto any surface like countertops, floors or shelves. Make sure to let your friends know ahead of time that this isn’t real so they don’t slip on it. It will look like something was spilled but can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth when you are done with the prank.


Switch Around Rooms
If you want to take things up a notch this April Fool’s Day, try switching around rooms in your house without telling anyone first. You can move furniture from one room to another or even switch bedrooms if everyone is game for it. You won’t believe how surprised people will be when they walk into their new space and find everything rearranged! This prank takes a bit more time and effort but will definitely earn some laughs (and maybe even tears) from your family members or roommates.


No matter how old we get, there’s still something special about celebrating April Fool’s Day each year! From flour bombs to fake spills and switched-up rooms, there are plenty of ways to have fun while still keeping things safe and harmless (which should always be the goal). So grab your friends or family members this year—April 1st is coming soon—and get ready for some good old-fashioned tomfoolery! Who knows what kind of mischief awaits? Have fun celebrating April Fool’s day!


If you want to surprise your kids or students with some great books look no further!

  1. It has been a while since I played pranks on others… and I do tend to get caught in a lie too easily (not good at it!!).. but love the idea of switching rooms (though it is an elaborate prank)
