Countdown to April Fools ~ DIY Fake Vomit

Well.  I am taking it there.

Nothing but classy talk around here, huh?

Fake vomit is the topic today.  Don’t pretend you’re not intrigued.


My 6 year old son brought this craft to my attention.  He got a book called Prank Star and of all the pranks in there, he was most excited about making fake vomit.  I am so proud.

He wanted to play this prank on his older brother, so we pulled a super secret fake vomit making session when my older guy was at soccer practice.

Here’s what you need:

  • 4 crackers, any kind
  • small ziplock bag
  • Elmers glue
  • Cling wrap
  • a magazine or newspaper

In your small ziplock bag crush your crackers.  You want both small and larger pieces…

Then on your cling wrap on top of your magazine make a small pool of glue…

Please don’t mind George Clooney in the background.

Next pile your crushed crackers on top of the glue, gently pushing them in so they stick…

Drizzle a little more glue on top so all the pieces stay put.

Now place it somewhere to dry.  Depending on how much glue you use it could take overnight to dry. We put ours on top of the refrigerator.

When the glue is completely dry, peel the fake vomit off of the cling wrap.

Now get ready to play our joke!

    I am SO doing this for April Fool’s Day. My 11 year old is terrified of vomit. I can’t wait to see her face….

      Apparently my first reply was deleted so I’ll say it again… if your child is “terrified” of something, then that isn’t a prank… that is a cruel act, bordering on abusive behavior. I speak as a mother, grandmother, teacher, pastor and psychologist. Please, if you must “prank” , choose a less terrifying object.

        Hi. Yes, we did delete your first comment, as we try and keep the comments here non-confrontational and light. I would imagine that “Betsy” was using the word “terrified” as hyperbole and would not intentionally do anything to harm her child’s well being.
        The “vomit prank” is a complete joke, that as you can see, was my child’s idea. We had fun making it together and putting it all over the house trying to “scare” his brothers. I think that’s the memory that my kiddo will take anyway from this, rather than having a permanent scar from seeing a pile of fake puke.

    I did this using cheerios to make the color more vomit-like and flour and water as the paste. My 5 yr old boy can’t wait to use it on his brother. My 10 yr old was skeptical but gasped as my baby crawled toward it. She suggested we use it on carpet since there would be a splatter effect on bare floor. Can’t get much past her!
