I did this one last year. I work at a restaurant. We have these spray bottles with a light pink solution we use to clean tables and such. I went and grabbed a brand new one and filled it with watered down pink lemonade.
I would be cleaning near my co workers , while chatting with them and nonchalantly unscrew the top spray/ trigger piece and just started downing it like I was dying of thirst.
The look of horror on some of their faces was priceless.
#2 Polish That Soap

Paint all the bars of soap with clear nail polish.
#3 “Chocolate Rain, Some Stay Dry And Others Feel The Pain”

Take off the lid to the shower drain. Shove in a plastic bag with some chocolate milk powder mix in it. Secure the bag with the drain cover and cut off any excess bits of plastic. Wait for sounds of disgust as brown water starts coming up from the drain while they’re showering.
#4 The Classic “Replace X Liquid” With Lube

Replace their Purell with Lube. Watch them rub their hands together forever. The lube washes off harmlessly, the shame never will.

Here’s one my 5 year old daughter pulled on me:
For a few days leading up to the 1st, she was talking about how her and mommy were going to bake me brownies. Totally hyped it up.
I should have seen it coming, but on April Fool’s Day, she brings me a plate with a bunch of brown construction paper cut out letter E’s.
She made me brown E’s.
#6 Just Donuts, Nothing More

Bring a box of creme-filled donuts to work. Regular creme-filled donuts. Put a note on the box that says “Happy April 1!” Watch everyone get paranoid about what you didn’t actually do to the donuts.
#7 Gotta Clean That Mouse Trackball, I Guess…

piece of opaque tape over the lazer on everyones mouse. IT was pretty angry, I need to take that one to the grave with me.

There are 4 doors to our building and my co-worker put a sign on each one that says “Door broken use other door” with an arrow pointing left.
#9 Notification Sounds At Their Finest

Create scheduled tasks on their computer to play an annoying song, at an annoying time.
We did this to a co-worker. Every day, 1:15, his computer would start to play Nickleback. 3:45, Taylor Swift.
#10 Fake It Till You Mustache It

I’m a female kindergarten teacher. I wore a mustache all day long and pretended it wasn’t there…even with the parents. Everyone got a kick out of it except for one student who cried because I “looked scary.”
#11 Mashed Potato Flavored Ice-Cream

Freeze mashed potatoes. Scoop frozen mashed onto cones. Serve the kids vanilla ice cream cones for dessert. The look on their faces after they take a big bite is amazing! Cheap, funny and harmless.
#12 Sir, Stop Calling, Mr. Bear Doesn’t Work Here…

I work in Sales, and it seems like we always have a new guy around April. I like to write down on a post it “Please follow up with Mr. Baer at…” and then the number for the San Francisco zoo.
#13 Get Caged, Scrub!

If they use Google Chrome, install the extension “nCage It”. It changes EVERY image (including google logo, thumbnails, etc.) into randomly generated pics/gifs of Nicholas Cage.
The best part? There is an option to hide the extension from the task bar. They would actually have to go into their internet options and find it under the “extensions” tab just to turn it off. It’s great.
#14 Nobody’s Birthdays On Facebook Are Real Anyway…

Pulled this on my wife two years ago. I logged into her Facebook and changed her birthday to April 1st.
Wishes came flooding in.
#15 School Is Cancelled… On April Fool’s… Yah, Right
Image source: Rag546
Day before April Fools during my highschool years I tell my parents that “school was cancelled”. Tomorrow during the middle of the school day I say “April Fools”. Oddly enough I wasn’t met with the laughs I was expecting.
#16 The Keyboard That Sprouts Life

Here’s what I’ve got planned: Got the IT guy to give me a broken keyboard. I’m going to take a bunch of chia seeds, plaster them underneath the keys, spend a few days watering it, and then switch it for my coworker’s keyboard that morning.
#17 Deliberate Signs For Otherwise Non-Existent Conditions

Put notes on people’s cars telling them “sorry about the damage”. They will spend forever looking for it.
#18 Zip Tie Anything That Isn’t Yet
Image source: Mooseymoose32
My favorite I did is to zip tie the cabinets and fridge shut. Then when they go to get the scissors, they find it they are zip tied shut too. Make sure to have an extra pair… I forgot to do that last year and had to buy another one…
#19 Sittin’ On Some Hidden Toilet Macaroni

Put dry macaroni under the toilet seat, so it’ll sound like the toilet breaks when someone sits on it.
#20 Googly Eyes Are Always A Good Choice?

We put googly eyes on everything in the fridge to shock the kids in the morning. We thought it was freakin hilarious and were totally impressed with our cleverness. Our kids were not impressed in the slightest. Not sure they even noticed…. Next year, we made them cereal and milk with a spoon in the bowl and put it in the freezer overnight. When we gave them breakfast, one burst into tears and the other threw it on the floor. Our kids can’t hang :(
