Check out our best
practical jokes and harmless April Fools' pranks to annoy your class,
family, friends, office

perfect for the April Fools' Day :-)
2. Gift-Wrapping a Bowl
Get a clear
plastic wrapper – the sticky kind for food. Lift the toilet seat and cover
the toilet bowl with it – you must do it very smoothly so there are no
creases to warn the next user. Enjoy the screams and look forward to going
to hell one day.
3. The Door Bell Prank
Put a note on some
doorbells saying: Sorry, doorbell broken. Please yell “Ding Dong” really
4. So Little Cat, So Much Poop
Do you live with
somebody who has cats? This one is really a bit disgusting, but – well,
judge for yourselves.
a week pay close attention to the cat’s bowel movements and remove any poop
immediately when it hits the litter box – without the cat’s primary
caretaker – your victim - knowing!
After a few days, your victim will start to worry,
maybe even say there must be something really wrong with the cat.
After a week, enjoy a poop in the box yourself. Yes, it is disgusting, but
watching your friend trying to figure that one out should be worth it.
5. The Pistachio Tantrum
If you’re a fan of
pistachio nuts, yay! Whenever you enjoy some, put those that didn’t crack or
can’t be opened easily with just your hands aside. When you have enough of
these annoying bastards collected, put them in some pretty glass jar or
something and give them to that special person. Picture their increasing
frustration and enjoy.
6. The friend and the grandpa (Good April Fools' Joke)
I told my friend that my
grandpa is hard of hearing. I told my grandpa that my friend is mentally
handicapped. I don’t remember ever having had this much fun before.
7. Daily Fun Facts
Text somebody daily fun
facts on some odd topic, e.g. pigeons. When they try to stop it, reply like
an automated texting system.
You: „Did you know that in
certain religious groups in India it is believed that when a person dies,
their soul comes back as a pigeon?“
Victim: „What is this BS?“
You: „We hope you are enjoying your subscription to the daily fun fact
site „Daily Smidgeon of Pigeon“. To unsubscribe, reply with Unsubscribe.”
You: “Oh dear. Do you really want to
terminate your subscription to Daily Smidgeon of Pigeon?”
You: “Message not recognized.”
Continue for as long as

colleague a safe flight on his business trip.

Switch keys in the keyboard
of a colleague who types using the “single eagle strike” method. They’ll
finally have to learn to touch type.
10. The Suspicious Furniture
rearrange furniture at somebody’s home or office. Not very noticeably, just
move everything about two or three inches. They will feel something is off,
but won’t be able to put their finger on it and will consequently spend the
day in a subtle state of nervousness and insecurity.
11.The Surprise Candy Prank (April Fools' joke for kids)
chocolate-covered coconut balls and chocolate-covered fish balls. Mix them
thoroughly and put them on a plate at your office kitchenette. Snicker

water in a jar with food colorant to make it look like fruit juice. Enjoy
13.Balancing Two Beers (perfect for April Fools' Day)

beers on their hands – and simply walk off. They’ll have no idea how to get
rid of the drinks.
14. The High Art Prank
Give somebody a terrible
kitschy crap as a gift and say you’ve made it for them yourself. Next time
ask where they put it. It’s up to you when you will let them in on the joke.
15. The Autocorrect Prank
Put up a few interesting
Autocorrect options in your victim’s Word. (Mind you, this is really evil
and they may not necessarily notice, especially if they prefer the “single
eagle striking from the sky” one-finger typing method and look at the
keyboard as they write, so make sure they won’t be writing anything terribly
16.The Alarm Clocks Prank
Old, but unfailingly
effective – Hide loads of alarm clocks set to go off at different times
around the victim’s room. It really isn’t funny after the third alarm goes
off – except it really is!!!
17.The Classroom Clock Prank
When the teacher is
away, set the clock in the classroom a few minutes late or early, the people
in front row should do the same with their watch when the teacher wants to

18.The Unmovable Cups Prank

Short on cash and somebody’s
birthdays are coming up? Draw an eye on a ladies’ sanitary pad. Voilá, you can give them an iPad now.
20. The Warm Water Effect Prank
If you’re at a
friend’s place for a sleepover (this is vital, you don’t want to do this in
your own home), put his or her hand in a bowl of lukewarm water as they
sleep. Most likely they will wet their bed. And not with the water from the
bowl - the warm water triggers the body’s peeing response.
21. The Messy Toilet Prank
This one is very evil and
will likely cause some serious soiling of clothes, so give a good think to
who you might play this one on and who not. The upside is, it is very
Take a mini ketchup or
mustard packet and fold it so it is nice and pressurized. Tape it to the
underside of the toilet seat. Imagine the mess that erupts when the person
sits down. Put on running shoes.
22. A Good Night Prank
(for pranking kids)
good prank if you have kids (7-12 years old) sharing a bedroom. Daddy wishes
them all good night: “Good night Steve, good night Gail, and good night
monster under the bed.” (cue for mother to use her walkie-talkie placed
under the bed: “Good night.”)
23. The Hot Toothbrush
Soak your friend’s
toothbrush overnight in water with loads of chili peppers/cayenne pepper in
it for some extreme dental hygiene. He/she will definitely wake up fully.
24. The Toilet Paper Slave Prank
Unroll a bit of
toilet paper and write on it “Please help, I’m a slave held at a toilet
paper factory!” Roll the paper back on as well as you can and leave the
message to be found by somebody else.
25. The Car Gift-Wrap
Do you have a valued
friend or colleague you wish to tickle? Gift-wrap their car! Use cling-film
and wrap their car all over and then finish the good deed with silver duct
tape (make sure you don’t put the duct tape on the car paint, you might end
up footing the bill for a new paint job and the prank would be on you,
that’s why you first use the cling film). What better gift could anyone
26. The Christmas Card Prank

relatives (in-laws, for example?) Christmas Card signed by totally
fictitious people they don’t know, include convincing personal details in
the wish to leave them completely baffled.
27. The Hidden Singing

battery out of a singing Birthday card. Hide in a car when you know your
beloved spouse will drive it soon. You can of course also hide it in your
beloved colleague’s desk – preferably one that you don’t share an office
28. The Nonsense Talk Prank
In the office, talk utter
nonsense at a colleague, then say, “Did you get all that? I don’t want to
have to repeat myself.”
29. The Office Gift Wrap Prank
everything in the office.
30. The Honey Doom
Once somebody dozes off,
drizzle a bit of honey on their face. Once they feel it, their doom is
sealed in a very sticky way.
31. Coin Prank
If you enjoy annoying random people,
glue a coin to the floor. See how many people try to pick it up.
32.Hieroglyphs for Beginners:
Borrow your victim’s
mobile for a while and change the language to something wildly exotic (that
he doesn’t speak of course!) Then sit back and watch them try to change it
A healthy tip that may save your skin: Note down somewhere how to
put it all to rights again!

Simply place a little note under a
friend’s windshield wiper saying “Sorry about the scratch.” Enjoy hours of
watching him looking and looking in vain….
34. The Oil Shampoo Prank
Take somebody’s bottle of
shampoo and fill it up with oil. Shake well to mix the shampoo with the oil.
It will be too late when the person realizes that it didn’t do
anything for his hair except to make it extra greasy.
The Bus Stop Dracula
This is possibly the
most disgusting prank you will read in a while.
You will need a ladies‘ sanitary pad, some marmalade and
good friends to enjoy the fun with you.
As you expected, put marmalade (naturally you go for
strawberry or raspberry) on the sanitary pad, make it look realistic.
Select a moderately busy bus stop. Once the bus has taken everybody away
and the place empties, place the ‘soiled’ pad near the bin so it’s nice and
Once the place fills up with a comfortable number of people,
go straight to the pad, take it up (this will already excite horrified
attention) and, if you’re feeling brave, sniff it and even dip your finger
in the marmalade and enjoy it’s healthful fruity taste and the fainting and
the gagging from the crowd of commuters.
New Prank Ideas 2017:
Soap Prank (only if your
victim uses soap bars)

varnish. Wait till it dries and place the soap back. People will wonder how
come there’s no lather no matter how hard they try.

Unseen, put a staple through a Post It note
and then put the Post It note back. Later, when you have some audience, slap
the Post It note to your forehead (cleverly hiding the staple with your
hand) and using an EMPTY (!!!) stapler, “staple” the Post It note to your
forehead. Expect fainting, vomiting, the works.
