April 1 a prankster’s favorite time of year. These funny April Fools’ pranks will ensure you’re the prankster and not the prankee in 2021!
Unwrap a lollipop, replace the candy with a Brussels sprout, then re-wrap the treat to present to your unknowing kiddos. Celebrate after the prank with real lollies.
Print out a sign that says “This property infested with bugs” then tape it on your front door to alarm unsuspecting visitors.
This parent found herself pranked in such a creative way it made her love her 11-year-old twins even more. “They got together and used all of the colored sticky notes in our house (and we have a lot) and created a huge April Fools creature across my bathroom mirror,” says author Dani LaBriola. “Each post-it had the word ‘hi’ on it and had a detailed face, eyes, mouth, and body. It left me ducking around their creature every morning to get ready because I didn’t want to take it down. I finally did…in December.”
Fake and “oops!”
Squeeze glue into an old bottle of nail polish, shake it up, and spill it out on parchment paper with the glue streaming from the bottle. When it dries, put it on the carpet to make your target think they have a troublesome mess on their hands.
Unscrew several Oreo cookies and replace the filling with toothpaste. Sandwich the cookies back together and serve with milk, or water to make it look like a totally normal snack. How disgusted they are probably depends on the flavor of the toothpaste you use for the prank!
Completely wrap a loved one’s car in plastic wrap then cover in silly string. (Don’t get the silly string on the car though, because it could damage its finish.) It may look like a lot of work to unwrap, but you just have to slice down the middle and it comes off quickly.
Pretend that you’re going to the bathroom and call your kid asking for toilet paper. When they come into the bathroom handing you the toilet paper, “accidentally” smear melted chocolate (which looks like poop) on their hands as they pass off the roll.
