The joke's on you this Sunday

Sunday is April Fool's Day - maybe one of the best days of the year. (Next to National Superman Day of course.) No matter how many times I do the Whoopie Cushion gag, my Dad falls for it. Funny, right? Even my Dad gets a great laugh out of it after he stops looking all flustered.

My health teacher says a good belly laugh is healthy for you. Not only is it a bit of a stomach workout, it can lower your blood pressure, relax your body, and even boost your immune system. You know what they say, "Laughter is the best medicine.”

And what better time to act like a doctor than on April 1?

Just remember, keep your jokes harmless, and don’t joke with someone you don’t know. Here’s some fun, mom-approved pranks for you to try on your friends and family this Sunday.
Got Milk?
if you buy your milk in a cardboard container, add a few drops of food colouring. It's a harmless April Fool's joke but the results are pretty colourful. (Just make sure Mom doesn’t throw out the milk before you fill her in on the joke.)
What's That in Your Apple?
For a fruity April Fool's practical joke, get a few gummy worms and carefully poke them into fresh fruit, like an apple. Give mom or dad a wormy apple for lunch or share with your younger brother or sister and watch them squirm.
April Showers
If you have a sink with a sprayer, put a rubber band around the handle when nobody's looking. This automatically keeps the nozzle in spray-mode. Make sure the nozzle is pointing up and outward. The next person to use the sink will get a splash!  (To avoid Mom or Dad’s wrath, stand by with a towel.)
Spare Change
This April Fool's practical joke is old but it still works. Superglue some coins to the sidewalk or any spot that has a lot of people walking around. Make sure it's an appropriate place, then watch people break their fingernails while trying to get the coins.
Have any of your own favourites? E-mail me one and I’ll send you a copy of Gotta Jet, the newest Chase Duffy adventure!
Speaking of that…I gotta jet. Time to start looking for the perfect place to put the Whoopie Cushion this year. LOL. Happy April Fools.
