Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day! Play some fun jokes, but not practical jokes, on your family. And definitely pretend to be fooled when your kids try to prank you. Here are a few family-friendly ideas.

Turn everything in the house (that is practical) upside down, and then act like everything is normal.

Serve breakfast for dinner. Or dinner for breakfast.

What are your fun jokes? Tell me in the comments.
