April Fools’ Day is the perfect time to pull off the most creative pranks and jokes on everyone. But before you go all out, make sure your pranks won’t hurt or offend anyone. This is not the time to joke about fake pregnancies, fake abortions, or fake accidents. If you’re looking for last-minute harmless pranks, here’s a short list that won’t get you canceled. Thank us later.
This April Fools’ prank is very easy and a definite classic! Buy a bag of vanilla-flavored cookies, then replace the sweet vanilla filling of each cookie with white toothpaste and pass it around. Before you know it, everyone’s in confusion as they try to figure out why the cookies suddenly taste like they just brushed their teeth.
What’s April Fools’ Day without messing with your co-workers, right? So, this is how this prank works: find pens or pencils in your co-worker’s desk, and then swap them with ~*unconventional items*~ like spatulas, chopsticks, spoons, or forks. Can you imagine their reaction? It would be hilarious!
Of course, kids are also part of April Fools’ Day targets. But don’t worry, we won’t scare them — or at least, that’s not the goal of this prank. All you need are packs of googly eyes and plaster them everywhere a la Everything Everywhere all at Once. The kitchen, bathroom, cabinets, it’s up to you! Once everything’s ready, show it to the kiddos and see if they’ll laugh or smack you for giving them a scare.
When it comes to our friends, we’ll never run out of crazy stunts for them, especially during April Fools. Using plastic wrap, cover your friends’ belongings and make sure that they won’t have an easy time unwrapping them. After all, what’s a little present if you won’t savor the moment of opening it?
April Fools’ Day doesn’t always have to be about pulling crazy antics. You can make it wholesome, too, without losing its wow factor. If you don’t usually treat your friends or family, April Fools’ is a hilarious time to start. They’ll be suspicious all throughout! It doesn’t have to be fancy, though. Just bring their favorite food and drinks, act as sus as possible, and you’re good to go.
Who said dress-ups are only for Halloween? You can do this fun prank at work or school, but you’ll need the cooperation of other people to pull this off. The more, the merrier! First, you or the entire group must decide who’ll be the clueless target. Once you know who it is, everyone else should bring at least three outfits and do a costume change at random hours. Before you know it, the unlucky prey is bewildered by what’s going on.
This lady is the one you’ll always see in almost every horror film there is, clad in a long white dress and with a grim backstory to tell. Of course, we’re talking about none other than the white lady! Print out a huge picture of the white lady and put it somewhere your unsuspecting victims will see immediately, like the window or bathroom door. Once you hear a scream, that means your mission is accomplished!
Of course, how can we forget our ever-loving parents on this day of feel-good fun? You gotta be a little sneaky on this one, though, so they won’t catch you. Look for picture frames at home and swap the photos with the most random celebrities or public figures. And voila! You now have to wait ’til your parents notice the big change and see how they’ll react. It could take weeks or months, so be prepared to be in it for the long haul!
