Kora and Logan have hit the age where jokes and pranks are hysterical. A good one will have them talking about it and laughing the rest of the day. As a result, they are really looking forward to April Fool’s Day. I’ve been looking for some fun ways to ring in April 1st and get them laughing and when an email from Nintendo landed in my inbox filled with funny Nintendo Themed April Fool’s Pranks, I immediately added them to my list.
This list couldn’t have been a better fit for the kids. Kora & Logan love Nintendo and the Mario world so much they named our dog Yoshi after the cute little dragon in Super Mario Bros.!
Onto the Nintendo Themed April Fool’s Pranks. There are some good ones here that will get the kids laughing, it will be a funny way to welcome in April.
Nintendo’s Foolishly Fun Family Prank Guide
Idea 1: Where Did Your Nintendo Go?
If you are a parent of a little Nintendo fan, hide your tyke’s favorite Nintendo game, Nintendo 3DS or Wii U for a priceless reaction! Or help the little ones hide Dad’s new system for tons of fun. Video record the morning’s festivities for lots of laughter later.
Idea 2: Hide the amiibo
Similar to the Elf on the Shelf concept, parents can have fun with their children this April Fool’s Day by constructing elaborate scenes with their kids’ amiibo figures while they are asleep and recording their reactions when they wake up and find the amiibo.
Idea 3: Fun Nintendo Notifications
The day before April Fools, try changing your friend’s or family’s smartphone ring tone and notifications to Nintendo sound effects. This trick will pleasantly surprise them.
Idea 4: Transform Yourself into Your Favorite Nintendo Character
What better way to surprise a loved one than by transforming yourself into a beloved Nintendo character. Do your best to resemble Mario, Luigi or Princess Peach this April Fool’s Day but remember to stay in character for a delightful reaction from your friends and family.
