Get in the Spirit
1. Keep the kids occupied with a word search puzzle. Although it looks like a normal word search, none of the words listed are actually in the puzzle. Your victim will search endlessly for the words while you egg them on to keep searching. The puzzle, created by, conveniently includes spring time words like basket, bunny and garden to throw your victim off the trail. To download the word search, click here.

2. Take one of your old jewelry boxes-the kind new jewelry comes in-and give your loved one or spouse an unexpected gift. Cut a hole in the bottom big enough to fit your finger in. For this trick the index, middle or ring fingers work best. Then decorate your hand with make-up, paint or lipstick to look like a bloody finger. Stick your finger through the hole, making sure to add tissue paper or some other decorative bedding. Then present the victim with your “gift.” Be as sweet and romantic as possible, opening it for them.

3. For smart phone users, there’s an app for that!

There are many free applications available in the Android and iPhone markets that can help you fool your friends. For example, the free Android app “Scary Zombies” allows you to set a timer with the alarm being a graphic photo of a zombie of your choosing. Set the timer and have your friends use your phone to get directions or play a game. What they get instead will have you laughing for the rest of the day. For those more gullible, download the “Fingerprint Lock” app. It’s a lock screen that allows your friends to think it can scan fingerprints. While this app responds to touch, the victim won’t know it.

4. This one is for all the mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, yogurt or sour cream lovers. Switch any of these for another of the same consistency and your victim will get a spoon full of something they aren’t expecting.

5. If you work on April Fool’s day, prank your co-workers with a stale joke suggested by Purchase a box of donuts the day before before and leave them in your fridge with the top open. On April 1, put the donuts in the break room so all can “enjoy.”
