30. Fill a glass with water. Add food dye so it matches the color of whatever juice you have in your refrigerator. Serve the "juice" to your family. They will be expecting something sweet and getting water so it will taste funny at first. Don't forget to watch the funny faces they make!

35. When you've stopped at traffic lights, glance over at the driver next to you and do a double-take. Then, with a panicked expression on your face, lock all the doors.

Spray faucet

My family does this EVERY YEAR and somebody ALWAYS falls for it. You can only pull this prank if ur sink has a spray faucet that works when u push the button. Tie a rubber band around the button of the sprayer and when someone pulls the handle to get water out of the tap (normal faucet) they will get sprayed in the face cause the button was already being pushed on the faucet

Sink Sprayer

If you have one of those things on the side of your sink put clear tape or a rubber band around it and make sure it points tword where a person will be standing. then in the moringin your victim (or anyone else who goes to trun on the sink) will get a spray in teh face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cat Pictures

You print out a bunch of pictures of cats and after your parents fall asleep, quietly sneak in their room and tape them on lamps and all over the walls. Go to sleep and wake up early. Sneak in their room and hide behind a curtain or something. When you hear their alarm clock go off peek out of your hiding spot and watch your parents wake up to a bunch of cats!!!

tell someone they dropped

tell someone they dropped something so that when they turn around you simply yell april fools


What you do is take one of your friends sodas (or a beer... this works great with drunk people) then poke a hole almost to the top of the can with a thumbtack or a pin or something. Then, everytime they drink it, theyll get soda on them and they wont know why. =]

Bloody Mary

this is probably the best prank u guys will ever hear!! ok so three of my friends slept over my house once. in the morning my friend (her name is Mary) had to go to dance class for two hours then she was going to come back afterwards. so my two other friends and i made up the best prank!!! my sister is a hairdresser, from school, she got some mannequin heads to practice haircuts on. so we took the three heads and hid them around a room in my house. we put one in the closet inside a jacket so it looked like there was a disembodied person hanging in the closet. next we put one in a laundry basket under a comforter with a bouquet of dead flowers from my sisters wedding, we made it look like one of my friends was hiding under it by putting his shoe under the comforter so that it was sticking out. then the last one we tied to a string and hung it from the top of the inside of a suitcase, then we got a rag and put ketchup all over it, then we tied the rag on the bottom of the neck with a string, the put a knife through it, then at the bottom, we wrote (in ketchup) "beware of bloody mary) then we all hid in different places around the room. when she arrived back at my house, my mom answered the door and told her that we were hiding and she had to find us. when she got to the laundry basket she said "dan i see you" then pulled off the comforter and screamed in surprise it was too funny and my mom got the whole scene on video!!! so this is a great prank to pull on a friend named mary!!!

This one is good if you are

This one is good if you are at the beach and your friend or someone is laying on a towel. When said friend gets up quickly dig a hole underneath their towel. After you dig the hole put the towel back where it was before (covering the hole). When they come back, they will lay on their towel and fall in! Just make sure not to dig the hole too deep or said friend could really injure themselves. Priceless! :)

Fake Blood and a car crash

A bunch of friends were out on ATVs and a guy's dad was the kind that worried about thier kid a lot, so we got him into a position where he looked like he was knocked out in his jeep and covered his face with ketchup. We told his dad he was in a crash he came back saw him and panicked until he realized it was a joke.

One joke is that you use

One joke is that you use some eye shadow and put it under your eye so it looks like a black eye!

Salty teeth?

This is the best prank ever, i did it to my grandama. You get up early in the morning before your victim is awake (or late at night after your victim is already asleep) and you take salt (or any other gross spice) and mix it with water to make salt water. You then pour all of the salt water on your victims toothbrush and then pour more salt (or any other spice) on top. The next part is optional but it adds a good 'nother laugh or 2. You pour a bunch of salt (or another spice) inside their toothpaste so when they go to brush their teeth the toothbrush and toothpaste will be salty.


put loads of cling film around the victim's door frame of there room (use sellotape fot that extra strong stik)and turn all the lights out... then go get loads of pans and bang them together reapeatedly or make as much noise as you can and watch them come running out of there room scared and straight into the cling film. try and video it so u can watch the look on there faces over and over again


i just got my G1 lisence and at night whlie my mom and dad were watching a movie, I went over to our neighbors and gave Mr. humphrey the van and car keys and he parked them a few houses over, and then in the morning Dad got so mad b.c. he thought that I had driven them :P

ok, so wat u do is act lik ur mad at ur friend. then wat u do is totally avoid them all day and then at the end of the day tell em it was all a total joke ;)

Put Karo syrup on the toilet

Put Karo syrup on the toilet seat. It dries clear so your victim won't see it coming. When they sit down they still won't know...but when they try to get up it feels like they've been glued to the seat (without the painful side effects)!

Try this: Before April Fools

Try this:

Before April Fools Day let your victim know you have a bunch of pranks in store constantly. Then get a piece of paper, fold it up, and write APRIL FOOLS PRANKS on one side. Then leave the paper where they will see it on April Fools Day. They'll open it up and on the inside will be written APRIL FOOLS!

I'd put in something meaner of course, but most kids are a lot more innocent then me.

Pringles Prank ;)

Once i was eating Salt & Vinegar Pringles and I offered one to my friend. She asked what kind it was and I told her "Original". The look on her face was literally priceless! (: (You could do this to anyone, as they won't be expecting such a strong flavor, or especially someone who doesn't like Salt & Vinegar Pringles!) ;)


these are wiked can't wait for april fools this year hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


put icing in your victim's toothpaste but just on the top.... but put enough on so that they notice. just go up to them and tell them (if it's way after morning) and say "your breathe stinks, you should go brush your teeth" and they will get up and do it and be surprised by the taste of their toothpaste.

She got a mouthful alright!

A couple years ago, my family had a really spicy dinner and hotwings to boot. My sister isn't the type that will just eat hot food without a drink to go with it, so she poured herself a glass of water. When she wasn't looking, i filled that same glass with clear mint extract and when she went to take a sip... well let's just say nobody wore the same clothes to the table as they started with that night. :)


Get some masking tape and get up early (before your victum gets up ) and tape thier door way from the outside ( make sure the door swings in NOT out ) sit back and watch lolololololololololololololololo

bake cupcakes for your

bake cupcakes for your office and make the one for you boss special instead of frosting on top give them the suprise of crisco!(only if your boss has a sense of humor or you willnt have a boss)

April fools joke

On April Fools Day I put cream cheese icing on top of my dad's toothpaste. I went up to him and said "dad your breath stinks." and he got up and brushed his teeth. It was hilarious! Just make sure you put enough on it. That was my problem

this one never fails. go

this one never fails. go into the kitchen and mix tofether any hot sauces you can find (the hotter the better). soak the victims toothbrush in the extremely hot concoction and then rinse it off to make it unnoticable

for a teacher...

One of the best pranks I ever did was on my math teacher. He is generally good natured (therefore good to prank) and really, really loathes coldplay. A couple of friends and I got together and planted four ipod/docking stations around the room and set the alarms to ipods. The first one was set at a very, very low volume (but near his desk so he could hear it but nobody else). The alarm was a playlist of well-known coldplay songs and eventually went on to play several tracks that had no actual audio so it would be quiet for the rest of the class. We did this with the other three, but the volumes were set for later times and got progressively louder. The final one was normal volume. It was great because at first you could tell he heard it but everyone else pretended they couldn't and this continued until the final one.


Hey these are great!! ^_^

good job

those were good ones.i laught at every one.or close to everyone,.

i especially like the one

i especially like the one about coloring water. I will do that!

Proceed with Caution

These are funny, but for most of these you need to have a victim with a good sense of humor, otherwise you will make an enemy real fast.

fake blood

This joke is mild but you can pull it any day of the year, what you do is get some fake blood (I use red cherry juice =D) and what you do is put the fake blood on one of your thumbs and go up to the person you are pranking and tell them you need help with your cut it is so funny to watch them try to help you when you just then suck the "blood" off and they look at you in discust XD

i made chocolate chip cookies only they werent ordinary. i replaced the sugar with half the amount in salt. when i passed out cookies at lunch all my friends were spitting.(its best to make the cookies a little bit on the small side because they wont take more than a nibble.

On top of making the "salt"

On top of making the "salt" cookies, you should make a very small batch of regular cookies. Once you give a regular cookie to someone, go back and give them a "salt" cookie. They'll take a bigger bite!

So for the whole day he wouldn't touch his hate and jay (his best friend) finally told him he totally killed me but it was soo funny we still laught at him

Minty Treat

Scrape the cream out of OREO cookies and fill them with white toothpaste, when your victim is about to reach for an OREO ask them '' have you brushed your teeth yet?'' if they reply no have a little giggle to your self if they say yes take a moment to realise how stupid you are for not doing it before they brushed their teeth. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
