April Fools is right around the corner and it's time to prepare your pranks!
Last year I didn't remember to plan anything, so the morning of - I did the usual, put a rubberband around the sink sprayer, hide the toothpaste - prank phone call. Well, my Husband did get wet - but so did everything else in my kitchen and guess who had to clean it -- that's right, me. I remember him chuckling while walking away... 'the joke's on who? oh yeah, YOU!'. Then he didn't brush his teeth that day - so again, joke's on me. This year - it will be better. Afterall, I spend my days making life easier for him... time for my fun. Are you with me?
Jokes for the adults in our lives:
Quickly sneak your DH's phone and take a screenshot of his home screen. Then move do a different screen of the phone without apps and make that the wallpaper. Watch in enjoyment as the frustration builds that his phone is not working.
Ballonify his home-office or man cave:
Enlist the help of some latex balloons and an awesome multi-purpose air pump for some of this awesomesauce. (I am definitely doing this one - think of all the fun the kids will get to have when he throws them out into our living space)
No use crying over spilled milk. Especially when it's fake.
You will need: Elmers white glue, a piece of plexi-glass or glass surface, and coconut oil. Smear coconut oil all over the flat surface, squeeze glue into a spill-like form and let dry. Peel off, place on keyboard and wait for it....
Good luck, chuck
Put a tight and firmly stretched layer of saran wrap over the toilet paper and place it back on the roll holder.
Paint his toenails before he wakes up in the morning
Either hide his socks, or mis-match them in his drawer
Nothing's going right
Hide all of his right shoes
Put 2 drops of blue food coloring along the bristle line of his toothbrush.
Now, let's all cross our fingers that the guys don't see this blog post and get to planning for our fun!
Chances are, they wont remember that April Fool's is coming up - they hardly remember our birthdays!
Moving on to..... Pranks for the little people:
Mis-match all of the socks in their sock drawer
Swap out the bags of cereal and put them in the wrong boxes
Hide their backpack or lunch bag
Set the clocks ahead, make them think they are late for school and leave early enough to go on a fun before-school adventure
Dye the milk a different color - and act like you have no idea what they are talking about! It is white, not blue!
Fill their bedroom with balloons as illustrated above
Wishing you lots of laughs, on April Fools Day and always! Now get on with your trouble-maker self!
