The Call

"The Call" is probably a classic way to prank your mom on April Fools day, but it's not recommended if your mother faints easily or has heart problems as she might be in a bit of a shock. The Call works better if you have a partner to help you. Your partner will call your mum and, as soon as she picks up the phone, you or your helper should hang up. Make sure your mum is away from the phone the next time you call so she has to walk to pick it up. Repeat the process as many times as you like or until your mum goes totally bonkers. Meanwhile you can record her reactions on video to have a few laughs with her when you tell her she's been an April fool!

The light's gone out!

If you're an early-bird when it comes to pranking, you can wake up on April 1st before your mum does. Get some transparent sellotape and tape all of the house's switches so it's impossible to turn them on. Your mom won't be able to turn the lights on until you unveil the prank!

Egg pranks

Eggs are a good tool to play pranks on your mom. For example, if your mom is going to cook with eggs on April Fools day, you can blow the inside of the eggs without breaking them and carefully place them back in the egg box. Your mom will be totally surprised when she notices there's nothing in when she breaks them!

Bedroom hack

If your mom comes home after you arrive on April fools day, this is the perfect time to prepare this bedroom prank. One of the most fun things to do is to turn all of the pictures on the wall upside down. You can also change the sheets and put single bedded sheets under her duvet, she'll think the sheets have shrunk! If you want to go one step further, put a Whoopee cushion or fart cushion under your mom's pillow so when she lies her head on it it will create a loud fart!

The Mask

Last but not least, you can go for the classic scare. To make it even more terrifying, put on a scary mask and hide in a wardrobe you know your mum will open soon. Jump out of it as soon as your mum opens it and prepare yourself for the screams. You can also hide under the table or behind the sofa too. It's not recommended to hide behind doors as your mum could accidentally shut it due to the fright and hurt you.

You can also dress up like Chucky if you really want to look scary!
