April Fool's Day Spills!

April Fool's Day is fast approaching and every year I look for fun ways to surprise the children.  A favorite of mine is creating fake spills.  They look realistic and they are so easy to make.

I don't remember where I stumbled upon this concept, but we have used it several times over the years.  The boys distinctly remember this craft and playing fun pranks on people.  It may change over time, some years we use a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows or spilled nail polish.

Get creative and craft a fun prank for April 1st!

Here is what you need to make Fake Ice Cream Spills:

*  white school glue
*  ice cream cones
*  paint or food coloring (I prefer paint)
*  cellophane or foil
*  sprinkles, marshmallows, bugs (optional)

Here is how you make this "mess":

In a bowl, combine the school glue with the paint.  The children chose red.

Pour the colored glue into the ice cream cone.

Over the cellophane, pour out the glue to make a spill and lay the cone on its side.

Add sprinkles or other fun touches.  Fake bugs would be hilarious!

Let dry overnight.  The bottom of the ice cream cone will become soggy, so it may take an additional day to dry.

When it is firm, remove the cellophane and place your cone on floors, seats, or other places where people don't want to see melted ice cream.  This is great for Grandma's house...

What is your favorite prank?

Thanks for stopping by! I think you should prank the little one first, before they have a chance to get you. :)

I agree! I think I have just as much fun as the children do. I think this year I am going to recreate a "slushie" or spilled coffee for my hubby's carseat...

funny but maybe try using a color that might remotely look like ice cream and not nail polish
