Fun April Fools Day Party Idea

Milena Kukurekovic
April Fools Day is almost here, and you know what that means? Yup, it is just another excuse to drink and party! April Fools Day is the best day to host an epic April fools day party for all the joke-telling, whoopee cushion-loving pranksters in your life!
The main goal of celebrating April Fools Day is generally just to have an entire day of fun and excitement. April Fools Day party ideas should focus on practical jokes, tricks, and fun laughter. Who doesn't enjoy playing a little trick on their favorite people on April Fools Day? This doesn't mean to go around pranking each other the whole party unless that is something you and your friends are into. Instead, it is a party of fun and weirdness. Since it is April Fools Day, you can't just have snacks and drinks. You need to give the day its rights. You need to hit your party guests with a gotcha moment! And there is no better way to celebrate than with fun drinks (honestly, alcohol is the answer to most things). Hence, we have decided to prepare a fun drink/dessert idea that will leave your guests dumbfounded - one that makes your toes curl because there is a surprise hidden inside!
Fool your friends and family with this Boozy Melon Balls Recipe. Yes, I said boozy - these melon balls are full of tequila and vodka! Watermelon with booze? Before you say "WHAT?!", remember - that is what April Fools Day is all about. So confuse your tastebuds with these fun, boozy drink-snack-combo, and make your April Fools Day Party unforgettable.

What you need:

  • cantaloupe
  • watermelon (seedless)
  • honeydew melon
  • tequila
  • pineapple juice
  • vodka
  • peach schnapps
  • melon baller
  • bowl


Step 1: Slice the fruit in half and remove the watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew seeds.

Step 2: Use a melon baller to scoop melons into small melon balls. Put melon balls into a ball. You will need to cover these, so make sure you have a lid.

Step 3: Pour pineapple juice, vodka, tequila, and triple sec on top of the fruit. Toss the melon balls so all of them are submerged in the liquid. Feel free to experiment with the type of liquor you use and the amount. :)

Step 4: Cover and freeze to soak for 1 hour until partially frozen. You can also chill them for a few hours if you don't want them partially frozen.

Step 5: Remove from refrigerator and drain, reserving alcohol if desired. 

Step 6: Serve with picks, margarita glasses, and cocktail napkins! Enjoy!!!


Add in whatever alcohol you enjoy but keep it simple! You can't screw this recipe up unless you start mixing weird stuff.


When serving, label as "adults only" to keep the kids away.

Boozy fruit is one of many creative and fun ways to prank your favorite people during April Fool's Day! 
It's fun and weird at the same time. So get creative, and design weird games, costumes, food, gifts, and drinks at your April Fool's Day party!
This party is suitable for all ages where adults can show a child in themselves, and children can still be children!
April Fool's Day party is not a party without some crazy games and activities that will entertain and delight all your pranksters! As long as an unusual and incomprehensible situation is included in the game, it will fit perfectly into your topic! Include clowns, fake food and drinks, and more! We will show you a list of some stupid April Fool's Day games that you can play on the topic of jokes.

April Fool's Day Party Ideas


Place the piñata, but you can fill it with water, eggs, or some alcohol instead of sweets! Then, your guests will hit the pin with a stick. Whoever manages to break is in for a big surprise! The surprise will surely succeed because everyone will be expecting sweets!

Surprise Cake!

Make a fake cardboard cake in the middle and a real cake around you that you plan to serve your guests! Place a clown in the middle to jump out of the cake!

Or you also have that variant of the cake surprised when you guess whether it is a real hamburger or a cake and for the first few seconds, you are convinced that it is a hamburger, and then look at the surprises! Then, you cut the cake, which turns out to be a real sweet cake! It will be a weird but delicious prank, whether scrambled eggs, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, or other cake!

Here is another salty idea with which you can prank your guests! Make and cover your beef burgers with cream cheese or mashed potatoes that will look like a fake glaze. No doubt they will look like the perfect piece of cake, just salty! Your guests will be surprised and confused and will not know if it is some unsavory joke!

Funny Duel

No first of April can pass without laughter. So hold a funny duel, where guests tell you and others their best jokes, one that makes the most people laugh, wins the competition and wins the prize. If you want the award to be a joke, come up with something worth the price!

Catching an Apple

Catching an apple can also be part of your April Fool's Day party. It can be a lot of fun to both watch and participate. You first need to fill one deep bucket with super cold water and put one apple and another fruit inside. The game consists, of a joke, for guests to alternately dip their heads in ice water to catch an apple! Whoever manages to grab an apple and not some other fruit is the winner! The prize in this game can be hot chocolate that will go perfectly after ice water!
