April Fools’ Day prank: Holey straws

April starts with a laugh and a giggle thanks to April Fools' Day! What better way to begin a new month than with some fun practical jokes? This one is a clever prank that means no matter how hard your victim sucks the straw in their drink, they just can't quench their thirst!

What you need:

  • drinks
  • straws
  • pin


Number of players:


On the night before April Fools' Day, take the straws out of their container. Lay them out on the table and pop a few holes about half way down each straw with your pin.

Place them back into the container and head off to bed.

In the morning, offer straws to your prankees during breakfast or with a morning snack.

When the prankee takes a sip, nothing will rise into the straw due to the holes you have sneakily put in there the night before.

Sit back and watch as they pull one straw after the other out of the packet, only to find all of them holey!

When you think it has gone on long enough and wish to come clean about your April Fools' prank, call out "April Fools'"!
