April Fools is the time to let loose and have fun, right? It’s the only day of the year when it’s totally appropriate to scare the shit out of your favorite people, because you’re a good friend like that and why wouldn’t you? While we don’t condone giving grandma a heart attack, we do want to make sure we’re still having a little bit of fun. Here at TTS, we love a good prank, and we think it’s only fair to help out our readers who might be feeling a little stuck on the type of prank they want to do. Or, let’s be real, might’ve forgotten that this holiday was coming around the corner (is it seriously April, already??). But don’t worry, we got your back. Below are 8 pranks you can easily do at home or in the office with only a few supplies. Let the pranking begin!
We all have a friend that’s into a cold, icy glass of soda, right? Okay, perfect. It’s time to make their drink a little bit less sweet and more… explosive. This is a very easy prank that’s guaranteed to make you laugh. It’s very simple: get an ice cube mold, fill it with water, and put them in the freezer till it reaches freezing point. Before it completely freezes add a mento on each cube (if you add the mentos before the water reaches its freezing point, the mentos will desolve and the prank wont be able to work). Add a few cubes into your friend’s diet coke, wait until it dissolves and… you know what to expect. Their soda will start to fizz up making a not-so-pretty mess on their desk.
Tomorrow is the perfect day for fooling our roommate without risking our apartment lease… I mean, it’s April Fools, so we have a free pass to mess things up a little bit. All you need for this prank is a lot of balloons (and really powerful lungs to blow them all). Go into your friend’s room and fill it with balloons from top to bottom. When they open the door they won’t be able to get in without being covered up by these colorful friends. Wanna make it a little bit meaner? Hide one important item into one of the balloons (a key, their favorite ring, or even their savings), forcing them to inspect every single one of them until they find their precious treasure.
The days are getting warmer, and all we can think of is going to the beach… and eating ice-cream, a lot of ice cream. So… why don’t you surprise your friends with homemade frozen treat to welcome spring? You are gonna be loved…. until they realize it’s not ice cream, but mashed potatoes instead. All you need to do is mash some potatoes (or buy the instant mashed potato if you are feeling lazy) and put it in the freezer for an hour to let it harden. Serve with an ice cream scoop and add your favorite toppings; gravy, condensed vinegar, and whipped cream are some of our picks…
Brushing your teeth is a pretty unexciting and ordinary habit, so we’ve decided to enliven the experience a little bit. Add powdered food coloring into your roommates’ toothbrush – don’t worry, it’s early in the morning so they won’t see anything out of the ordinary. Once they add tooth paste and start washing their teeth it’s gonna look as if their mouth is gushing this unusually colorful foam. Maybe they’ll think they are a unicorn or something…
While this prank has become pretty famous because of the TV show The Office, we think it’s so good that you should definitely copy it and do it to your coworkers, because… why not? Take a ton (like 15 boxes of Jello), put half of the mixture in a bowl, let it cool, then put the object of choice on top. Next, put the rest of the jello over the object, and let it cool. Now all you have to do is place it on your coworker’s desk and let the sh*t show commence.
What’s a better way to prank your roommate than to use the one room that everyone uses? While this job might get a little dirty, it’s totally worth it, trust us. Grab your handy-dandy plastic wrap, lift the toilet seat up, and secure the plastic wrap over the the toilet. Put the toilet seat down and wait for the magic to happen. Your roommate might not want to pay next month’s rent, but who cares, because this prank is so worth it.
If grandma or your mom is on your April Fools list, then this prank is perfect for you. Go into your iPhone’s settings, click on general, then settings, and then text replacement. Now you can alter any word, like, “Hi” to “Boobs” or, you know, to whatever word you like. Now every time they write that word, iPhone will autocorrect the original word to the one you changed it to. Make sure you do this trick when you are around them so you can see their reaction. This moment will be priceless.
Nowadays, it seems that everyone and their mom uses liquid body wash when they take a shower. We completely understand: It makes your body feel smooth like butter and it always smells AMAZING. But if your roomie is one of those people that still uses a good ole fashion bar of soap, then we have the prank for you. Take some clear nail polish and cover that bar of soap completely with it. After you let it dry, put it back into the shower and, bam, you got yourself a soap that will never get soapy.
