Everyone will probably take to social media to pull off an easy April Fools’ Day prank, but not you. No — you need to go all out this year; real prank and all that people will never expect. Catching your friends and family completely off guard with your silly antics. No fake pregnancy announcements or engagements on social media — only some good ol’ pranking that is bound to annoy and scare the crap out of those you love. I mean, that’s what you do on April Fools’ Day right? The bigger the prank, the more you love them. Or something like that... right? Sounds like a good enough excuse for an easy-to-execute prank to me!

However, you’re probably tired of trying the same pranks over and over and you’re looking for something completely new. The best April Fools’ Day pranks are the ones that catch your target completely off guard, something they wouldn’t expect to happen during their day. Something that probably hasn’t been seen or attempted — like “freezing” your partner’s iPhone screen or stuffing an entire room with balloons.

So if you are the type of person who thrives on April Fools’ Day, than these easy jokes are exactly what you’ll need for a perfectly plotted prank.
