Catch a Dollar Prank

Catch a dollar is a classic prank that kids just love.  It is perfect for April Fools day or any time you want to add a little silliness to the day.

This is such a fun practical joke! One that uses real money, so it’s win-win for the “prank victim”! This is one of my favorite dollar bill prank ideas.

Supplies Needed for Prank

  • Dollar bill
  • Fishing pole with line (hooks removed!) – or a homemade fishing pole created with some light colored thread
  • Tape

How to Do This Easy Prank

Step 1

Start by taping the dollar bill to the end of the fishing line.

Step 2

Place the dollar bill in an open area.

Pull out enough fishing line to allow the bill to stay put while you to take the rod to a nearby hiding place like some bushes if you are doing this outside (camouflage shirt is optional).  

Prank tip:  Try to keep the string constant any extra slack in the line can cause the prank to fail so keep the line a little tight once you get settled into your hiding spot.

Step 3

When your little sister walks up and sees the dollar bill lying on the ground, of course she is going to bend over to pick it up…

That’s when you make your move!  Before she grabs the dollar bill, reel the fishing line in just enough to pull the dollar bill out of her reach.

Step 4

She’ll probably think the wind just blew it out of her grasp so she’ll try to pick it up again…

Reel the line in a little more to snatch it away from her reach.

This April Fools prank drove my kids crazy!  My son loved being the sneaky one hiding in the bushes and my daughter was cackling with laughter at the silly dollar bill that appeared to keep running away from her!

My kids had so much fun with it that they played it over and over again out in the open just to see if they could keep the dollar bill away from each other.
