On the one hand, toddlers seem like the perfect demographic to celebrate April Fools' Day: They're silly, they love to laugh, and their sense of humor is totally slapstick. On the other hand, though, they get scared easily (sometimes over stuff you would never expect), and they're not known for dealing particularly well with disappointment. So what are some hilarious but harmless April Fools' Day pranks to play on your toddler?
Toddlers are just figuring out how things are supposed to work in the world, so they're super quick to point out when something is amiss — and they're sure to dissolve into giggles as soon as you explain the reason why. Plus, toddlers love surprises (and all of these pranks will definitely come as quite a surprise!).
If there are older siblings around, be sure to get them in on the joke. Because, let's face it: Big brothers and sisters pretty much live for playing tricks on their younger siblings, and April Fools' is the one day of the year when it's actually acceptable!
Perhaps best of all, none of the pranks on this list are going to make a huge mess of your house or take hours of effort to prepare. They're all as easy as they are fun — and they make for great photo ops, too.
