There's nothing like waking up to a good ol' prank text on April Fools' Day. Because for some reason people still fall for these pranks, which means they are still game if you need an April Fools' Day text ideas for this year. Don't worry, I fully plan on going beyond the whole "we're engaged" or "hey, Mom, I got married in Vegas last night" texts and posts that will probably be flooding your feeds throughout the day.
Text messages can be a brutal place for a prank, because people won't be expecting it. They'll be looking for pranks played around the house or on social media, but probably wouldn't expect someone to pull an elaborate prank through a text message. That is why they are extremely effective, and the ideal prank to pull this April Fools' Day.
First, figure out who this is going to and make sure they won't take it too seriously (because a breakup text probably could certainly go poorly, if you don't play your cards right). Next, you'll want to draft our responses so you don't give yourself away during the prank. Think about what this person might respond to your texts, and have your elaborate responses ready to make sure your prank is seen through.
So if you're considering a text message prank this April Fools' Day, here are a few pranks pulled that your loved ones will never expect.

If you plan on breaking up soon, though, maybe this isn't such a good idea...
Sent this to my mom. She called me and I said April fools and the last text was her response 😭😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/p2lLOJNhnB— BZ (@breezybzzz) April 1, 2016
Find an accident photo of the same type of car you have and send it over to someone who won’t completely hate you afterwards.
Somehow $3,000 is missing from your account and you have to let someone know about it now.

Because for some reason, all serious life changes and disasters tend to happen on April 1...
Head over to this website and flip your text before sending it!
Change the names in someone’s phone to fictional characters, and make them figure out who is who! If you can get multiple people in on the trick, then they can pretend to be those characters all day long.
A classic text on April Fools' Day, but somehow still effective.
