Top 5 April Fools' Day Crafts

April Fools' Day is a great time to play fun pranks with -- and on -- your kids!

Pipe Cleaner Spider
Easy even for little children. Take a small Styrofoam ball, paint it with black tempera paint, and insert four black pipe cleaners to create eight legs. Glue on googly eyes. Take turns with the kids placing the spider in obvious locations and announce dramatically, "There's a spider on my head!" Or, "There's a spider on your plate!"

Foolsville "Quarter"
Gather together a handful of quarters each showing a different state on the back. Then pull out the "official" Foolsville Quarter: two dimes and a nickel taped together.

Funny Card
Using construction paper, glitter, glue, markers and other supplies, have kids write silly messages or greetings for invented holidays. "Happy The Dog Ate My Homework Day!" or "Happy Vegetable Day!" Inside, write "April Fools'!"

Invisible Dog
Buy an inexpensive dog leash and collar. Connect them. Carefully untwist and stretch out a wire coat hanger. Using duct tape, attach the hanger to the underside of the leash and the inside of the collar. The stiff leash gives the impression that an invisible dog is pulling the person along.

Jester Mask
Cut out simple mask shapes from brightly colored poster board. Have the kids glue on glitter, sequins, feathers, buttons, confetti punched from construction paper, and other odds and ends. Staple a length of elastic to the back or tape a pencil "handle" along one side.
