This year, for April fools’ day I wanted to create a fun game that could double as an easy prank.

At first glance, this word search appears to be just like any other. It has a bunch of jumbled up letters and a word bank with April fools’ day themed words.

However, it probably won’t take too long for you to realize that none of these words can be found in the puzzle, it is totally unsolvable! 

Hand out this game in your classroom or at home to your kids, friends or family members and see how quickly it takes them to figure out that this April fools’ day word search is actually an April fool’s day prank!

Here are the twelve words you will be searching for (and unable to find!):

  • April
  • Jokes
  • Fool
  • Pranks
  • Spring
  • Holiday
  • Laughter
  • Games
  • Surprise
  • Tricks
  • Silly
  • Playful

This game was created to be printed onto an 8.5×11 inch piece of printer paper or cardstock. One game will print per page

Feel free to download and print as many copies of the word search as you would like. However, please do not edit or redistribute the files in any way. This activity is intended for personal or classroom use only.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
