Last-Minute April Fools' Day Pranks To Play On Your Family In 2017

There's nobody more forgiving than your family... right? That's why when it comes to last-minute April Fools' Day pranks, you're going to want to think of some of the best pranks imaginable. Stuff that would make them scream, throw something at you, and then eventually force themselves to forgive you because, you know, you're related or whatever. Blood is thicker than water, family means no one gets left behind, yadda yadda yadda.

So this means bringing your A-game pranks for April Fools' Day, even if that means planning something super last-minute. These pranks are going to promote you to prank-pro status this year, with tricks like hidden Mentos in soda bottles and popping out of, well, anything and anywhere. Because nothing promotes better screaming than an elaborate "gotcha."

Before choosing one of these ideas, make sure to really evaluate what your target is scared of, and try to incorporate that into your prank. Are they scared of spiders? Then you'll want to add that hanging spider trick. Rats? Got that too. Or, if they aren't easily scared, then give them something annoying to deal with. Like a body completely covered in toilet paper. Yeah. You can actually pull that off.

Here's a few other ideas to try out this April Fools' Day:

Pop Out Of The Cupboard


Just in case they didn't watch enough Beauty and the Beast to know that the dishes really could come alive.

Serve Some Doughnuts


Or... not.

Swap Oreo Filling With Toothpaste


For a delicious dessert at the end of a day full of pranks!

Be The Garbage


Get someone else to ask a family member to throw out the garbage, only to find that the garbage is alive.

Fake Bugs Everywhere


Hang some fake spiders on some string and drop them on your family members. Watch them freak out.

Or, Plant Some Fake Rats


Because nothing prompts a louder scream than rats.

Toilet Paper Blow Dry


Because they'll probably need a good dry right after a shower!

Wear A Costume


Find the scariest costume you can find and just sit around the house, doing normal tasks until someone lets out a scream.

Pop Out Of Nowhere


Somewhere they would never expect!

Mentos In Soda


Treat your family to some soda and pizza for dinner, and ask your sister to pour soda for everyone when it's dinner time! Cue evil laugh.
