Ice cubes can seem dull and boring. So why not have some fun with this April Fools prank? Turn that ice cube into an eyeball! Kids Activities Blog is excited to share this funny prank with you to have fun with.
Sometimes it is fun to plan April Fool’s Day pranks for your children. Sometimes it is fun to create a prank to pull with your children. JDaniel and I created eyeball ice cubes to slip into my husband’s water glass. We just new he would jump if he saw eyeballs in his glass.
The ice cubes were so easy to make and such fun see how they would turn out. The prank could actually have been on us instead of on him.
We weren’t really sure how these ice cubes were going to turn out.
I came with the how I wanted to make these, but we weren’t sure if the marshmallows would expand. We didn’t know if the pupils would wash off of the marshmallows and turn the ice cubes green. That would leave us with blank eyes. We didn’t know how much the marker might bleed as soon as it had contact with water.
As you can see some of the eyeball ice cubes ending up with pupils that bled their color into the marshmallows we drew them on. One ice cube had too much water and it pushed the marshmallow almost completely out of its compartment. Almost every ice cube turned over or turned sideways while the water around it was freezing.
We were really surprised to see that the marshmallows kept their size. None of them expanded.
How did we made the eyeball ice cubes?
- We placed dots onto marshmallows with a food marker.
- We place the marshmallows into the compartments of an ice cube tray that makes oval ice cubes.
- We placed the tray into the freezer for a few hours.
My husband was surprised to find this floating in his water glasses. He didn’t scream with fear, but he did think they were really fun.
I think we will try them again.
