Here are a few easy to do April Fools' Pranks from GH. Check out full list Here ->>

1) Classic Whoopie Cushion

It's a classic for a reason. Place it under your kid's seat before they sit down for breakfast or for your work BFF to sit on, no matter who is the victim of this prank, you'll get the whole room laughing. Bonus: the whoopee cushion can be used over and over.

2) Balloon Pillow

Before your significant other goes to sleep, replace their pillow with a bunch of balloons. The key here is to make sure the balloons are positioned properly to throw them off (you can use tape to keep them together). Then, when they go to lay down, their "pillow" will be moving all over the place.

3) Having "an accident"

It's really hard to leave poop out of an April Fools' Day prank list. Buy a fake one, and place it literally anywhere: on the toilet, in the car — seriously, you can't go wrong.

4) Change The Date

Before they wake up in the morning, change all the calendars in the house, plus their phone if you can get to it, to make them believe it's a totally different day. And this year, April 1 is on a Saturday, so you can get the kids up early and tell them it's time for school.

5) Empty The Drawer

Or, empty multiple drawers, and then leave the house or pick a good hiding space. They'll be left wondering where all of their clothes, underwear or utensils went, and you won't be around for them to ask. You can also switch up drawers to get them even more confused.

6) Balloon Room

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? Even cooler!)

7) Uncontrollable Remote

This prank takes the “control” out of 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.

8) Scary Silhouettes

All you need for this gag is a few strategically placed fake insects — or, you can even cut them out of paper. Stick them to the inside of a lamp, and when your target flips the switch — yikes! They’ll discover some very suspicious silhouettes inside the shade.

9) Fan Fun

Warning: This gag requires commitment… because you’re the one who’s probably going to be cleaning it all up! Carefully place confetti atop the blades of a ceiling fan, tucking them all out of view from below. When someone flips the switch to turn on the fan, confetti will blanket the room like it’s December 31 instead of April 1.

10) Car Caper

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.

11) All Eyes

Glue a pair of googly 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.

12) Booby Trap

Affix a party popper — yes, the kind of dollar store item you can buy for New Year’s Eve — to the jam of a closed door, with the string stretched across the door. So when someone turns the knob to cross the threshold, they’ll find themselves surprised by a loud noise and a mini explosion of confetti.

13) All The Noise

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 a loud, unexpected noise to wake someone up real quick!

14) Undrinkable Drinks

Whip up some Jello and let it set in juice glasses, complete with a straw in each. Serve them up to guests’ surprise: Those “drinks” aren’t liquid at all, and those straws will get them nowhere.
