Have fun with April Fool's Day

April Fool's Day can be lots of fun and this page is full of ideas for playing pranks on people. These aren't big or dangerous pranks, just ones that are fun and easy and funny for everyone involved.

So whether you finally want to prank your brother or sister or spouse or kids, check out the following ideas to see which April Fool's jokes are the funniest for you.

Please Keep It Safe and Funny

Don't do things that can be dangerous or actually hurt someone. Please keep the mess to a minimum as well. April Fool's Day jokes that are harmful, illegal, or too messy as not funny.

April Fool's Day Joke Ideas

  • Saran wrap things such as the doorway, the toilet, their car.
  • On your victim's boxers, stitch the fly shut.
  • You can also stitch the bottom of a leg of pants shut, or just use safety pins.
  • Find an image of an awkward looking mouth and chin, print it out if it's online or cut it out if it's in a magazine. Tape it to the bottom of your victim's coffee mug, making sure it doesn't show around the edges. When they go to drink their coffee, it will look like they have that mouth, but they won't know.
  • Put a piece of tape over the sensor on the remote control.
  • Fake a sneeze by using a squirt bottle to just mist someone's neck as you pretend to sneeze right behind them.
  • Pick up the house phone and place a piece of tape over the button. Put the phone back on. Call the phone from another phone. When they pick up the phone receiver it will continue ringing.
  • Put a piece of tape over the sensor on bottom of the computer mouse.
  • Put just a little bit of Vaseline on a doorknob.
  • On the back of their car, place a sign that says "Happy April Fool's Day, please honk". The victim won't be able to figure out why people are honking until they look at the back of the car.
  • Put an electric fence sign on a wooden fence.
  • Put up a for rent sign on their front lawn and write on it that those interested should knock on the door.
  • Get up early and park the car around the corner and pretend it was stolen. Fess up with this one quickly to prevent the victim from calling the police in panic.
  • Put a note on your victim's car. Write on the note "Sorry about the dent." Then write down a fake name and phone number. The victim will search their car for the dent.
  • Set random alarms around the house to go off at various times.
  • Wrap toilet paper back and forth across a doorway so when the person opens their door in the morning they run into the tp barrier.
  • Leave a Walkie-Talkie under your pet's bed and wait until your victim gets close to the pet. Use the other Walkie-Talkie to make it seem like the pet is talking to your victim.

Draw On a Moustache Joke

This is a classic. Just wait until someone is asleep and use a marker to draw a moustache on them. Please use a washable marker, though permanent will come off with alcohol wipes or vigorous scrubbing.

April Fool's Day Pranks in the Kitchen

  • Give your children "juice" to drink with a straw, but instead of real juice give them gelled Jell-O.
  • Swap sugar in sugar bowl for salt
  • Clean the filling out of an Oreo cookie, then replace with white toothpaste.
  • Frost a piece of Styrofoam like a cake.
  • Take a bag of chips out of the cupboard and open them carefully at the bottom. Remove the chips and replace them with a different type of chips or pieces of crumpled paper. Glue the bottom of the bag back together and place it back in the cupboard.
  • Tape the kitchen sink spray handle in the open position with tape that blends in. When someone turns on the faucet they'll get sprayed.

April Fool's Pranks in the Bathroom

There are so many different ways to prank someone in the bathroom on April Fool's Day. Usually people walking into the bathroom in the morning are half asleep and unprepared, so it's far easier to prank them.

  • Place a Snapper (the little things that pop when you throw them) under the toilet seat. Try to place the Snapper so the foot on the bottom of the toilet seat is resting on it. When someone sits down it will pop really loudly.
  • Fill the conditioner bottle with something else creamy such as mayonnaise or yogurt.
  • Replace the top inch or so of your victim's deodorant with cream cheese.

Fish Tank Sink Prank

Make an aquarium in your victim's sink. Don't forget fake or real fish and make sure the plug works really well.

Rattlesnake eggs are a classic joke. Usually the prankster pretends to be handling the package very carefully, then they have the victim hold it, which sets off the mechanism inside the package, making it rattle like the baby rattlesnakes are hatching.

This joke is especially good when the prankster is a good actor and can pretend to be nervous about the package.

      Congrats on LOTD. When we were married, we returned after a few days away to find our house had been pranked with some of these tips. Unfortunately my new sister in law bore the brunt of many of them as she was staying in our house while we were away!

      Once I snagged my Mom's newspaper and filled in her beloved crossword puzzle before she got to the box to retrieve her paper. Only did that one once. I love these. The meatloaf "cake" and mashed potato "frosting" are truly inspired. But I must ask as I've never understood... can someone tell me what's so funny about pee, poop and farting?

      Great lense, really clever and funny. My best April fool's prank took place about 5 years ago. I placed a dish towel over my mouth and phoned my mother. (the purpose of the dish towel was to disguise my voice) I started, ' hello my name is Bruce Mitchell, I'm calling from Revenue Canada (same as your IRS) . Is Mrs Salo there.?" My mother replied, rather timidly with some obvious hesitation, " Ah yes , this is Mrs Salo, you're talking to her." I continued, " Yes Mrs Salo, It seems we have a rather serious matter that we need to discus with you." Her, " Yes," Me,"When you filed your last year's tax return you calculated that we owed you about 432 $, however due to some recently discovered data, it seems that you owe us 28,032 $. For the last twenty eight years you filed as the wife of one, Donald Richard Salo. Unfortunately you forgot to fill out form 411, The I'm married to a bastard form, which makes you ineligible to claim joint marital status. " Long, long pause,My mother said, in a totally meek manner, " What do you mean I was married to a , a ....bastard? " I said, " Yes, not only was he a bastard, he was a multi polygamist as well. He had 17 families, such as yours.. " That was when I lost it. I burst out laughing, " April fool's Mom. " I totally suckered her in. It was brilliant ( at least I thought.)

      I've done a balloon avalanche. You make a huge 'pocket' of saran wrap around someone's door, and fill it with balloons. When they open the door, the balloons pour in on them. Of course, you have to make sure it's a door that opens inward. ;) Great lens and funny ideas.

      This made me chuckle! Your picture of the room wrapped up in brown paper reminded me of high school Band Camp where one of the girls was sleeping and we wrapped her bunk in paper - then made a sudden noise so that she woke up fast and jumped out through the paper. WE thought it was funny... alas, she probably didn't think it was as funny as we did (but she did giggle). :) Congratulations on LOTD!
