With spring right around the corner, it is time for everyone to start preparing for the most important holiday of the year. That’s right, April Fool’s Day. If you’re looking to get a bang out of this year’s holiday, here is a list of ten simple April Fool’s Day pranks that will help you celebrate in style.
Ketchup Packets – place a ketchup packet on the rim of the toilet bowl where each of the stoppers from the bottom of the toilet seat will fall, then gently rest the toilet seat on top of them. The next person that sits down will get ketchup smashed all over their thighs.
Fake Wedding Announcements – Take a picture, type up an announcement and send it to your parents, grandparents, or siblings. If you have a fake bride or groom willing to help, then you can stage an original photograph. If you don’t have a partner in crime then you can easily Photoshop your face onto any number of existing photographs online (check out AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com/). The more realistic it looks, the better the joke will be.
Rise and Shine – Set the victim’s alarm clock to go off in the middle of the night. It works best if you can do it after they’ve gone to sleep and can hide it somewhere in the room. Unscrewing light bulbs is also a nice effect so that they have to search for the screeching alarm clock in the dark.
Frozen Underwear – Steal a pair of your siblings/roommates/spouses underpants the night before April Fools Day, soak them in water, and place them in the freezer before you go to bed. While they’re in the shower the next morning, sneak the frozen pair back into their drawer.
Saran Wrapped Toilet Seat – stretch a sheet of saran wrap across the rim of the toilet seat and tape it down. Make sure it’s pulled tight and then lower the toilet seat. They won’t realize the bowl is covered until it’s too late.
The Taped Ice Cube – While your roommate/sibling/spouse is brushing their teeth before going to bed, tape an ice cube to the ceiling above their pillow. It works best if you use two strips of tape, leaving the center of the cube exposed. As the cube melts it will drip right onto their face.
Rubber Band on Sink Sprayer – Put a rubber band or elastic around the head of the sprayer next to the sink and make sure it’s aimed forward. When the next person turns on the sink, it will turn on the sprayer and soak the unlucky victim.
The Fake Out – Leave a note on your co-worker’s desk, your roommates mirror, or in a friend’s planner that simply says, “April Fools.” They’ll be looking over their shoulder all day long.
Sabotage the Work Place – Pester your co-workers by dipping the tips of their pencils in clear nail polish, taping the bottom of a computer mouse, or re-arranging keyboard keys.
Changing Clocks – Change all clocks in your home forward one hour. You could also change them back an hour but that may be risky if you cause someone to be late to an important event.
