What’s inside: A list of fun & friendly April Fools Jokes for kids.
I love April Fool’s Day! What I don’t love are mean pranks that are meant to worry or scare. Why would we want to upset the people we care about, even if it’s just a joke?
That’s why I gathered a list of GOOD-spirited April Fools Jokes for kids! These are fun ideas that will get kids thinking and laughing. They’ll love being “in” on the joke!
Some of the ideas on this list are jokes for parents, and some are ideas that kids can do themselves. All are silly and intended to be good-humored. (Nothing gross, scary, or mean here!)
