Twist the deodorant container at the bottom until around two inches of deodorant comes out. Replace it with cream cheese, which you mold and shape with your hands after removing it with a spoon.

It takes effort and imagination since it must be genuine enough that your pal will not hesitate to put it to their armpits.

1. Don’t Pull, Push Instead

April Fools Pranks

Find a door that can only be opened by pulling it open, then place a “Push Only Please” sign on it that seems official.

You’d be astonished at how many individuals continue to push despite mounting evidence that it’s not going to succeed.

Why do we obey signs without question, even when they defy logic? There’s a psychology thesis in there somewhere.

 All you have to do now is figure out how long you’ll let them struggle before reminding them of April Fool.

2. No End in Sight

April Fools Pranks

What could be more aggravating than continually rotating the toilet paper roll in quest of the end? Make the practice considerably more difficult by spraying the toilet paper roll’s loose edge with hairspray.

3. Drink The Undrinkable

April Fools Pranks

Make some Jello and place it in juice glasses with a straw in each one.

4. Loud Noise


April Fools Pranks

Attach a hidden message to your friend’s car’s bumper that reads: “Honk Please”. Don’t let The driver have any idea. The difficulty will be to get the sign-on without attracting the attention of the motorist.

This works best with a co-conspirator who can distract the victim while they get inside the car, so you can glue the message to their bumper later.

But make sure it’s something that can be taken off easily so the joke doesn’t get entrenched.

5. Balloon Room

April Fools Pranks

You shouldn’t stuff every accessible square inch of a friend’s office with balloons. instead stuff it with square inch balloons, making it impossible to enter without popping them all one by one.

The number of balloons you need is determined by the size of their office and the size of the balloons you’re using.

Thankfully, we have the Internet, and there’s even a Reddit post dedicated to deciphering the arithmetic behind this.

Office April Fools Pranks

Here are some office April fools pranks for your co-workers that might interest you.

1. Plant Grass in your coworker’s Keyboard 

April Fools Pranks

I know what you’re thinking: wouldn’t it take too long to grow? They’d already know if you had to plant it a couple of days prior.

Don’t worry, I’ll show you how it’s done. You’ll need to buy another keyboard, plant the seed, and then swap it out with the other guy’s smart keyboard.

His retorts will be hilarious. Please don’t do that to someone who has a grass allergy.

2. Toggle the Screen

April Fools Pranks

It’s so simple that it’d be a crime not to use it on someone on April Fools’ Day. All you have to do is gain access to their computer (wait till they’re on a break or at lunch) and press Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow.

Everything on their PC screen is abruptly turned upside down. Don’t worry, it’s just as simple to undo. Simply press Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow.

That is, if you’re using a Mac, go to System Preferences, Displays, and then the “Rotate” menu.

3. Missed Call Prank

What better way to break up a long day at work than with some lighthearted entertainment? Leave a note on your coworker’s desk stating that “Mr. Baer” or “Mr. Lyon” called them.

Also, remember to leave a phone number! That is the phone number for the nearby zoo.

Either your coworker will notice straight away and you’ll get to experience their displeasure at being so gullible.

Or, you’ll giggle as they continually inquire for Mr. “bear” or “lion” to a group of endlessly amused zoo personnel.

4. Attach An Airhorn to Their Seat

You can wait after work the day before the D-day or go early to work to attach an airhorn on your colleague’s seat.

So, immediately they open the door, come in and take a seat, it will blow a horn and they will gag or jump.  Their reaction is going to be very amusing and interesting.

You can try it on another colleague, especially that one that always comes to work late.

5. Mouse Prank

This is another April Fools prank that might interest you. All you just need to do is to get your seatmate or colleague’s mouse to cover it with paper or something that will allow the mouse sensor to work properly.

Make sure you test if it is working after covering. You can write “April fool” on the paper so that they turn it in after trying a couple of times, they will realize it’s a prank!  

April Fools Pranks for Family

Check out these harmless April fools pranks for your family.

Purchase a universal remote and have it synchronized with your television. Then wait till your friends or family are watching TV and believe they have complete control over the situation.

The idea is to gradually increase the strain. Don’t go berserk and start changing channels on them at random.

Wait until the show they’re watching reaches a tense point, then abruptly switch to the Home Shopping Network. Practice makes perfect in this case, so do a few dry runs before your April Fools’ moment in the spotlight.

3. Bake a batch of “Brownies”

Tell a few friends or family members that you’ll be baking “brownies” for everyone.

Then, while your friends and family believe you’re baking for them, cut out many letters “E”s from brown construction paper, stuff them into a pan, cover with tinfoil, and announce that you’re done.

Stand back and watch everyone’s faces collapse as they unwrap the tinfoil and discover there’s no dessert inside.

Make sure to only tell people about it through word of mouth, so they won’t be offended if you truly give them brown Es.

4. Barrier Made of Rubber Bands

Spend some time wrapping one of their most important items, such as the remote control or their smartphone, in layers of rubber bands.

Then watch as your family strives to keep their cool long enough to liberate it.
