April Fools is Today! Prank And Joke Ideas

April Fool’s Day is the one day of the year where mischief and mild chaos reign supreme. It’s a time to share a laugh with friends, family, and even coworkers, provided everything is all in good fun and nobody gets hurt or overly embarrassed. If you’re looking for some simple and hilarious pranks to pull this April 1st, you’ve come to the right place.

For a fresh twist on April Fool’s Day, here are some varied and creative prank ideas designed to spark laughter without causing any harm:

The Ephemeral Shoe Lace

This one’s subtle and harmless. Shorten the laces of someone’s shoes slightly and tie the ends together inside the shoe. They won’t notice the prank until they try to tie their shoes, leading to mild confusion and a good laugh.

Empty Box

Find a small or big box, place a note at the bottom “I couldn’t afford a present so I got you this box” or another funny phrase and fill it with filling material. Pretend like you have a surprise present for someone you want to prank and give them the box. Just watch and wait for the laugh!

The Faux Remote Control

Cover the remote control’s sensor with a piece of tape, or take out the batteries. Watch as your family tries to figure out why the TV or other remote-controlled device isn’t responding. It’s simple, quick, and always good for a laugh.

“Voice-Activated” Appliances

Put up official-looking signs next to printers, coffee machines, or other common appliances in the office, claiming they’ve been upgraded to be voice-activated. Watch and enjoy as people attempt to command the inanimate objects to operate.

The Unscrewed Salt Shaker

Loosen the lid on a salt shaker or any similar condiment container so that the next person who goes to use it ends up with a bit more seasoning than they bargained for. Make sure to choose someone who would find this amusing, and be ready to help clean up!

 “Spilled” Coffee

Craft a fake coffee spill using brown fabric paint on a white plastic sheet or wax paper. Once dry, place the faux spill on top of someone’s laptop, documents, or anywhere a coffee spill would cause a mini heart attack. Just be sure to reveal the prank quickly!

The Mysterious Room Reorganization

Subtly rearrange someone’s room or office space, moving items just enough to be noticeable but not so much that it’s obvious. It’s all about subtlety with this prank—the aim is to make them think they’re forgetting where they put things.

The Inflated Workspace

Under someone’s desk, tape inflated balloons to the underside so they don’t notice them when they sit down. They’ll discover a surprise “airbag” system when they try to scoot their chair closer to the desk.

Whoopee Cushion (“Fart pillow”)

Pull off a classic laugh with a whoopee cushion at your family member or colleague. Slip the whoopee cushion onto a chair before everyone arrives, making sure it’s well-hidden. Choose a seat you know will be taken, ideally by someone who enjoys a good joke. Wait for the moment when they sit down and the whoopee cushion does its magic, mimicking a fart sound. It’s a simple, timeless joke that’s sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face!


Whatever prank you choose, the key is to ensure it’s all in good fun and won’t lead to any harm or lasting inconvenience. April Fool’s Day is about laughter and joy, so keep the spirits high and the pranks light-hearted!


And some silly jokes you can use to bring some laugh in the room:

  • I lost all my winter weight. Now I just have spring rolls.
  • What did summer say to spring? Help! I’m about to fall.
  • What did one spring flower say to the other? Be-leaf in yourself.
  • What do you call an Easter bunny with fleas? Bugs Bunny.
  • Can February March? No, but April May.
  • How did the skeleton know that April showers were on the way? He could feel it in his bones.
  • What month of the year has 28 days? All of them.


Have fun planning your pranks and telling jokes, and remember, the best prank is one where everyone can laugh together afterward!
