So here are some easy April Fool's Day pranks to play on your friends and family:
Old but gold
This trick may not be the most innovative one, but it's great fun. Simply swipe your friend's phone when they are not looking and change a few contact names to your favourite fictional characters. No lasting harm done - and you'll definitely get a few laughs watching your friend field calls and texts from Batman and Harry Potter.
Make up an event

This works best on someone close - your significant other, or your kids, maybe. Send them a cheerful "good luck for 'xyz' important event today" and watch them scramble to figure out what it is.
Put a note on a friend's car that reads something along the lines of 'sorry for the damage' and watch them look for nonexistent scratches and dents. Laughter guaranteed.
This for that

Ah, the good old food swap. Toothpaste on Oreos, mayonnaise filled donuts, mashed potato sundaes... the possibilities are endless! Put on your thinking hats and get cracking in the kitchen.
Typing symbol prank
You know those three dots that tell you someone is typing a message? Simply send a gif of those dots to a friend and drive them crazy.
Googly eyes on everything

Is it creepy? Yes.
Is it effective? Also yes.
The prank that wasn't
And finally, a great way to trick your coworkers. Bring a box of totally normal donuts (or any dessert) to work, write 'Happy April Fool's Day' on the box, and watch as people try to figure out what's wrong with the sweets.
