6 Funny Easter Basket Fillers Perfect for April Fools’ Day
April Fools' and Easter fall on the same day this year, so deck out your kid's (or any fun loving adult's) Easter basket with these hilarious fillers.
April 1 is pulling double duty this year: The Sunday is both April Fools’ Day and Easter. Instead of skimping out on the fun, celebrate both by playing some hilarious Easter games, sending your friends and families goofy Easter memes, or even filling Easter baskets with some fun gag-gifts. Not sure where to start? We put together six funny-bone busters both kids and adults will love.
An Easter basket isn’t complete without a package of jellybeans, but this mystery game takes it to the next level. Jelly Belly’s BeanBoozled unleashes either one wildly tasty flavor like Tutti-Frutti or an awfully disgusting option like booger. They won’t know until they eat it—and they’ll love pranking their friends and family until the candy runs out.

What could be more a-peeling than a gag gift that’s not only useful, but also supports a good cause? This Bluetooth banana phone receives calls and can use your voice assistant to make them, too. The funny-looking fruit holds another feel-good secret, too: It’s made from 100-percent recycled plastic and a portion of sales goes to a gorilla conservation non-profit.

As much as we’d like to think otherwise, nothing is funnier to the under-12 set than potty humor. Magically, regular old fluffy spun sugar becomes the flatulence of the mystical animal with silly (read: genius) packaging of cotton candy. It’s sure to launch your kids into a giggle fit. Feel reluctant to make the purchase? Though the joke may be lowbrow, the company supports some worthy causes: Ten percent of the company’s profits goes towards charities that help children with neurodiversity.

Move over, Monopoly—this simply hilarious game is what will entertain your family for hours on end this Easter. Fill random eggs with water and then place them back in the carton among the dry eggs. Spin the spinner, pick an egg, and crack it—if you get splashed, you’re out!
