Last year, I had bought powdered dounts for breakfast. I had secretly taken the donuts and re-dipped each one in baking soda. I loved their faces when they took the first bite--talk about priceless!!

My oldest son claims he is not eating anything I make that day. They love the surprises as much as I love planning for this day.
That's great. I actually just made fancy caramel apples today for Easter. The onions would be great-but I'd hate wasting the caramel! The donuts one sounds great too.

That's exactly how I see the spirit of the day--a tiny, lighthearted joke that ends happily for everyone. Cute idea!

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

I'm guessing that the OP is an early April Fool's joke on us???

No, I wouldn't do something like that. The point behind a prank is to leave the victim laughing, not disappointed. And in your case, theres' always the chance she could tell the kids, before you have the chance to interrupt and tell her that it's all a joke. (As in "Omigod, kids, we just won a trip to DisneyWorld!!! Be quiet and let me listen to the details!!!!"

Last April 1st I simply logged onto DISboards and loudly proclaimed, in horror, that our favorite rides would be down for refurb for our upcoming WDW trip. My husband freaked out more than our kids! Simple, easy, yet priceless gag.

I learned soon into the relationship with DH that it was better NOT to participate in pranks with/against him.

He is the master.

Tart n' Tinys all over the bathroom when I open the medicine cabinet? Done...

Plastic wrap on the toilet...Done

Vinegar in my coffee....Done

He sucks.

I'm trying to rig up a prank...we have several interview rooms that have video monitoring, I'm getting two of the agents I work with to go into one of the rooms and start talking about their affair and appear to be kissing, and then get the other guys saying "I just went in the video monitoring area, you have to see this!!" After shocking everyone they'll turn to the camera and say "April Fools"

Love it!! I had a contest going at work with this guy, always trying to one-up each other. I'd put plastic under the lid of his water bottle, so nothing would come out when he sucked on it. Put a picture of Homer Simpson over his creds photo........when he went through the front gate the guards cracked up laughing. DOH! We worked in this tiny office that had to be secure with no windows in an abandoned building that used to be used for medical experiments. We were on the 2nd floor (the ONLY office of many abandoned offices) and there was this long hallway....one day I came into work and turned on the light, and it would go off. I'd turn it on, and it would go off. Finally, sighing, I'm feeling my way down the hall in the dark and he jumps out at me from another offices door way. Scared the bejesus out of me!! He was at the other end of the hallway turning off the light, every time I turned it on. Soooooooo, a couple months later, I figured out pay him back in kind. I knew he was going out to lunch with my friend down the road, and I called her and said "Laura, call me when you drop off Howard, I'm going to scare him"....so she called me when she dropped him off. So, I'm standing in an abandoned office, and I hear the footsteps coming closer and closer, and I jump out and go "ROOAAARRRR!!!". Uh, it was an FBI agent Howard had an appointment with I can laugh about it now, Howard thought it was hilarious, I was beyond embarrassed. The expression on the agent's face was priceless, I think he thought I was some crazy woman on the loose!

It became a tradition. Easy, and not too traumatic for the victim. Just a little water.

Then we replaced the faucet with one that has a built-in sprayer.
Arrghh, my son's used to do that to me all the time!!! They never expected mom to do it though.

I used to wake up my kids for school and tell them it was a snow day. EVERY YEAR. Geeze, you'd think after the first time, they'd at least look out the window!

I did something similar to friend of ours similar to what the OP plans to do to. We always played pranks on each other and not just on Aprils Fools Day.

This was many years back mind you. We have a friend who is a huge Dead Head. So tickets for a concert where getting ready to go on sale so he took the morning off from work so he could call right as they went for sale (this was before the internet is what it is now). He would call and it would be busy. Call back, busy. So on and so forth. He finally got through and got the 4 tickets (we were going with them). He was over the moon so off to work he goes. But before he left he called us to let us know he got the tickets.

So while he was at work I called his house phone, disguised my voice and left a message that I was calling from Ticketmaster and there was a problem with his order. Sid there was a computer glitch and even though we said there were tickets available there really wasn't. We re very sorry, we will refund you card. I went on to say if he has any questions please call us at 1-800-555-5555 (which was actually our phone number, minus the 800 part of course. I figured he would have caught that and realized it was a joke. Well, he didn't.

He called the number and of course it didn't work so he then called the Ticketmaster number. Oh my gosh! He went up one side of them and down the other. He was furious. They finally were able to get a word in and assured him there was not a problem with the tickets and everything was fine. They didn't know why he could have received such a message. After a while he finally calmed down and called us to tell us what happened. That's when I let him in on the joke.

I felt so bad. What I thought would be funny ended up not being. He was so upset. Even now, a good 20 years later it still gnaws at me what I did. After that I stuck to things like moving things around in his cabinets and short sheeting the bed. The last one was always a fun one after a night of drinking.

That's funny, I would have thought your phone number was a clue too! I mean...hmmmmm, what a coincidence, this is phorsenuf's phone number, but with a 1-800 in front of it!

This one came to me on the spur of the moment.

A few years ago, my boyfriend had the misfortune of having two flat tires in the last few days of March. I'm sure you can see where this is going.

The morning of April 1st I took our dog outside. When we went back inside I yelled OMG! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!

He said what?

I said, YOU HAVE ANOTHER FLAT TIRE!

He went flying out the door and stood there looking at his van and said where?

I said, on the back drivers side.

So he ran around to the other side, stood there just staring at his tires, and when he looked up with a bewildered look on his face I just started laughing. He finally got it.

My husband is always grumbling about our collection of pets, two weird guinea pigs, one stubborn and slightly aggressive cat and one dog that doesn't like him because he is afraid of men.
Two years ago when we still had our rabbits we called him at work and told him that obe rabbit had babies , he was totally freaked out.

This year I'm planning on putting a small sugar egg in the box of the school turtle we are feeding over the holidays .
