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

Those pranks are simply funny! Many of those are perfect for the April Fools' Day :-)


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.

The Door Bell Prank
Put a note on some doorbells saying: Sorry, doorbell broken. Please yell “Ding Dong” really loud. 
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.

For about 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.
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.

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.


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.”

Victim: “Unsubscribe.”

You: “Oh dear. Do you really want to terminate your subscription to Daily Smidgeon of Pigeon?”

Victim: “Yes.”

You: “Message not recognized.”

Continue for as long as you like.

The Handgun Prank (perfect practical joke)

Cut out a silhouette of a handgun out of some thin metal sheet. Insert in colleague’s briefcase. Wish said colleague a safe flight on his business trip.

The Keyboard Education (nice April Fool's prank)

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.
The Suspicious Furniture

Subtly 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.

The Surprise Candy Prank (April Fools' joke for kids)

Make chocolate-covered coconut balls and chocolate-covered fish balls. Mix them thoroughly and put them on a plate at your office kitchenette. Snicker freely. Don’t let them out too long – food poisoning from a rotting fish would not be entertaining.

The Very Bland Juice (Nice prank for kids)

Color plain water in a jar with food colorant to make it look like fruit juice. Enjoy resulting faces.

Balancing Two Beers (perfect for April Fools' Day)

 Bet somebody they can’t balance two beers on the backs of their hands, with their hands resting on the table palms down. Put the beers on their hands – and simply walk off. They’ll have no idea how to get rid of the drinks.

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.

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 important.)

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!!!

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 check. Eventually he’ll set his clock to the “right” time and have a very confused day.

The Unmovable Cups Prank

Staple loads of paper or plastic cups next to each other (if you’re feeling merciful, stick to batches of 5-8) and arrange them all over somebody’s office table. Fill them with water. Mwahahahaha – really hard to remove!

The iPad Prank (very good to fool kids and teenagers)

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.

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.

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 simple.

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.
A Good Night Prank
(for pranking kids)

A 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.”)


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.

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.

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 expect?

The Christmas Card Prank

Send your selected 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.

The Hidden Singing

Rip the speaker and 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 with.

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.”

The Office Gift Wrap Prank

Foil-wrap/gift-wrap everything in the office.

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.

Coin Prank

If you enjoy annoying random people, glue a coin to the floor. See how many people try to pick it up.


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 back…
A healthy tip that may save your skin: Note down somewhere how to put it all to rights again!


The Scratch Prank

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….

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 visible.

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)

Coat the soap with transparent nail 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.
The Paper Bag

A perfect party prank, especially when it’s a little later and people are already tipsy:
Take a non-leaking plastic bag and put it inside a brown paper bag. Fill the plastic bag with some canned fruit cocktail or chopped up fruits and veggies – it should definitely be moist and slithery. Place it strategically where nobody will easily see it and position yourself within easy reach. At a good public moment, grab it and pretend to puke into it. Give it a moment for the people to look back again, then look in the bag, appear pleasantly surprised and grab some of the fruit cocktail and eat it. If the party is at your home, you might want to place a few more bags or bowls for people to puke into, as you’ll probably start a different sort of Mexican wave.
The Staple Prank

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.
