April Fool’s Day 2021 Prank Ideas: Here’s How you can Pull a Fast One on Your Friends

  • You can put a sticker on the back sensor of their computer mouse. The mouse will stop working. When they try to operate the mouse with the idea of working on the system, they might not figure out the problem. You can enjoy it from the distance.
  • Place bubble wrap under an area rug or a bathmat for a rude surprise when a passerby steps down. This one’s particularly effective first thing in the morning, before your unsuspecting victim has had any coffee — nothing like loud, unexpected noise to wake someone up real quick!
  • Glue a pair of Google eyes on every single item within the fridge — so the condiments appear to stare back when someone opens the door. This also works great with all produce.
  • Slip a sign reading “honk and smile” inside the car of your prank target; make sure it’s hidden and out of their view (and not blocking their views at all). All commute long; they’ll wonder why they’re getting beeped at nonstop by drivers who seem more flirty than inconvenienced.
  • This prank takes the “control” out of the remote control: Use a teeny sticker or tape to cover over the sensor on the clicker. No matter how hard they try, they won’t be able to make those TV channels budge even with new batteries.
  • Locate a windowed door that the target of your prank will see from the outside. Blow up a collection of balloons and cluster them together. Attach to the inside of the window in the door so that it looks like the entire room is filled to the brim with balloons on the other side. (And hey, if you can actually fill the whole room with balloons? That’s even cooler!)
  • Yes, the classic baby shower game of melted chocolate inside a diaper works great as a timeless April fool’s Prank, too. If you have a baby in the home, smear a diaper with chocolate candy or peanut butter; then call in a spouse or child to observe with horror as you taste the mess.
  • This prank’s on the messier side, but it’s super easy to execute: Swap the clear disinfectant within a container of sanitizer for clear school glue instead. They’ll pump out a sticky surprise right into their hands and wonder why it’s not evaporating as they rub.
