April Fools' Day 2024—10 Fun, Family-Friendly Pranks to Pull on the Silliest Day of the Year

12:00am | & Tips and Advice

The 1st of April, otherwise known as April Fools' Day, is a silly occasion full of jokes, tricks, pranks, laughter, and fun.

Find out how you can get in on the fun this year with April Fools' ideas that will lift your spirits and put smiles on your friends’ and families’ faces.

Fun April Fools Jokes to Prank Your Family and Friends

1. Offer Your Loved Ones a Delicious Toothpaste Oreo

Who doesn’t love a classic Oreo?

Take some Oreos and replace the filling inside with your toothpaste of choice (bonus points for weirder toothpaste flavours).

Put the innocent-looking Oreos on a plate to serve to your friends/family and revel in their surprised and disgusted faces as they take a bite.

2. Wrap a Rubber Band Around Your Sink Sprayer

For this prank, you’ll need a sink that has a sprayer and a rubber band.

Simply wrap the rubber band around the handle of the sprayer so that it is held down.

The next time someone turns on the faucet, they will be sprayed with a surprising shower.

Warning: Find out if anyone in your house has an important meeting that they can’t be late to beforehand.

3. Bombard a Small Space with Balloons

This prank feels like a party!

Blow up a ton of balloons and fill a small, enclosed space with them.

Whether you pack the balloons into your loved one’s car or their office, they will be surprised to be met with a parade of balloons when they open the door.

4. Put Dye in the Shower Head

If you want to strike your unsuspecting victim with a shower of bold colours, unscrew the head of the shower off and place Easter egg dye tablets inside.

Instead of a nice, relaxing shower, the next person to hop in will receive a burst of energy—and a burst of colour.

5. Add Googly Eyes to Random Objects

This prank gives a new meaning to “spying eyes.”

Place googly eyes on random objects to give your loved ones a good laugh.

 Whether you put the googly eyes on food items in your fridge or random furniture around the house, this cute prank is guaranteed to make you feel like all eyes are on you.

6. Silly Auto-Correct Trick

If you are technologically savvy, this trick is for you.

Go into your victim’s phone or computer and program a common word such as “the,” “and,” or “a” to autocorrect to the silly word of your choice.

If you want to admire your handiwork, text your loved one a question that requires a multi-sentence response.

Cue the confusion when their message is suddenly filled with funny words that they didn’t type.

7. Swap the Sugar and Salt

This may not be the sweetest thing you’ll ever do for someone, but we hope your loved one isn’t too salty about it.

Swap the sugar with salt and watch chaos and confusion ensue.

8. Put Vaseline on Doorknobs and Handles

Craft a mischievous April Fools' jest by stealthily applying a thin layer of Vaseline onto doorknobs and handles, turning them into slippery surprises for unsuspecting victims.

Let’s see them try to get out of that door!

9. Fill a Fake Letter with Glitter

Glitter is pretty, fun, and it gets everywhere.

Fill an important-looking envelope full of sparkly glitter and hand it to a loved one, telling them that they received mail that needs to be opened immediately.

Watch their shocked face when upon opening the letter, glitter rains everywhere.

10. Block a Doorway with Paper Cups Filled with Water

Who doesn’t love an obstacle course added to their daily routine?

Block the entrance to a doorway with cups filled to the brim with water to make your loved one’s day a little more interesting.

Make sure that you use paper cups instead of glass to ensure that the prank remains safe and harmless—but still maybe a little wet.
