Very carefully slice open mini-packages of Peanut M&M candies and replace them with gummy worms or some other candy that is totally not related to an M&M.

If they are young boys, they'll think it's hilarious.

I can't really remember anything specific, but I know that I have seen a ton of great ideas in Family Fun Magazine. You can go to their website (http://familyfun.go.com/) and search "April Fools." There are a bunch of really fun ideas.

Check out food that looks like one thing but is something else. I saw this on food network a couple of times. They made ice cream sundaes look like nachos. Or here's an original idea...haha...cake that looks like pizza or something.

I will bake a cake/cupcake and dye it pink, everyone expects it to be the strawberry box mix but I will instead add a flavor to it like root beer, blueberry etc.

I went as far one year to make cupcakes for my job that it was my last day at. Everyone kept walking by and eyeing my cupcakes and I said "I'm leaving at 2, you can have them then!"

They were a triple chocolate with chocolate fudge filling with chocolate frosting... but had some garlic and onion powder added to it. icon_lol.gif The chocolate smell was so overwhelming that you couldn't smell oh so subtle hint of the garlic or onion but you sure could taste it.

There was a reason why I made them wait... I heard them screaming for me down the hall as I walked out the door at 2:01. I laughed and let out a loud "GOTCHA!" as the door closed.

I was thinking about making deviled eggs or hard boiled eggs, but making them from cake. Covering the hard boiled ones with fondant would be fun and feel almost like actual hard boiled.

When my boys were little I used to get an empty pizza box and make them cookie pizzas for school. I used to searve it with the clear kool-aid. Made the kids think they were getting water. I've made sushi from fruit roll ups and rice krispies with a gummy worm center. I've also been known to sew extra legs on a baked chicken. The cake deviled eggs that were posted on here awhile back looked real. I'm sure you could do a search for them. There are always dirt cups with the gummy worms or you can do fish bowls with clear plastic cups, gummy fish and blue jello. I remember my son's baseball team always liked the dirt cups. If you were wanting to do cupcakes there are the ones that look like boxes of popcorn or you could do hotdogs using circus peanuts. That is all I can think of off the top of my head but you can always check out family fun like everyone suggested. Good luck and let us know what you decide on.

One year I made each of my son's teachers a mini cake from my "grandmother's original spongecake recipe" Oh yeah, each cake was actually a decorated sponge.

The one that has survivied generations, (my mom used to do it to us) is to make peanut butter crackers. She would cut an index card just smaller than the cracker and put it in the middle. When we bit in, we could not bith through.

Good times!

Just be careful whatever you do.
I took the sushi into work and they all REFUSED to eat it till one brave sole tried and then realized it was rice krispie treats!

I'm getting so excited for April Fools. My kids school lunches also are a great target!! They usually somehow 'forget' their lunches that day so I always have to be one step ahead of them. I love it!!

Have fun!!!
