April Fools Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I’ve never been into making anyone eat anything gross, or playing pranks that take more than 5 minutes to clean up. I just like doing the simple pranks that get someones blood boiling for a few seconds before they realize that its a prank! The last few years that I’ve been married, April Fools has just slipped by, and I haven’t had a chance to play any pranks on my husband. But this year, I’ve been extremely excited to play a few of my favorite April Fools Day pranks on his unsuspecting mind! 🙂
1. T.V. Remote Prank
Stick a piece of invisible tape over the censor on the T.V. Remote and watch your husband and kids get frustrated almost instantly!
2. Airhorn Prank
Use Duct Tape to Tape an Airhorn behind your door right where the knob would hit the top of the horn when opened. Put it on a door that you know you’ll victim will open all the way (like the bathroom or their bedroom door) that day, and watch them jump when the horn goes off!
3. Dye Pellets In the Sink Prank
This one is my favorite! Use Easter Egg Dye Pellets to change the water coming out of your faucets that day. Use pliers to unscrew the bottom cap off your faucet and set the tablet inside. Then when your unsuspecting victim (preferably your husband) turns on the water, watch them scramble around turning on all the faucets in the house to figure out why the water is a different color in each sink or bath tub.
4. Double Stick Tape Prank
This is a great prank to either play in someones office or bathroom. Use double stick tape to tape everything they usually use that day to their desk or counter. I like to put it on my husbands computer mouse, pen and note pad. But you could also put it on your kids tooth paste, soap and hair brush! Then watch them try to figure out why it won’t move when they go to use it.
5. Confetti On the Ceiling Fan Prank
This one is a little bit messy, but nothing a quick vacuum can’t take care of! Set confetti or, in this case easter grass on top of your ceiling fan in a thin layer. Then watch the surprise when your loved one goes to turn on the fan and confetti flies everywhere! Then re-use the gras in your easter egg baskets next week!
6. Party Popper Prank
This is just like the Airhorn Prank, but with party poppers. Tie the string to the door knob of a door that’s already open and you know they’ll want to close. Then watch them jump when the go to close their door!
7. Nail Polish & Soap Prank
This is another favorite of mine because it’s never expected. Use clear nail polish to paint the bar of soap in your husband or kids bathroom. Cover the whole thing with a generous layer. Then listen to them freaking out in the bathroom when they can’t figure out why the bar of soap isn’t getting sudsy.
8. The Clogged Bottle Prank
Another great bathroom prank is to use Saran Wrap in the opening of the shampoo or soap bottles. This will only work on squeeze bottles that have a cap. Unscrew the cap and wrap the opening with saran wrap. Then screw the cap back on. When they go to get their shampoo, nothing will come out!
