Apr. 1 is a good day, not just because it's due time for the spring sunshine to finally start making its appearance, but also because it's the day of jokes. April Fools' Day, also known as the official day of laughter, is celebrated among many cultures with one main goal: to play a practical joke so good, you laugh your ass off. There's nothing better than playing a good, crude joke on your best friends, a corny joke on your boss and coworkers, or a cruel joke on your parents because you know their love is unconditional, and they will always forgive you.
When it comes to playing a good April Fools' Day joke on your own kids, though, the bar is raised significantly. This is the one day a year you can take advantage of setting your kids up for a big scare, a moment of embarrassment, a laughter-inducing frustration tantrum, or just a good belly laugh for everyone involved. This is your hall pass to get your kids back for all the BS they've put you through so far this year, and to wipe the slate clean.
There's no sound like your own kid's laughter, so take this day to soak it all in. Get involved in April Fools' Day 2017 with these hilarious practical pranks to play on your kids.
