Prank 1:The Squirt
Prank 2:Raining cups
Prank 3:Got Milk?
Prank 4:Look What I can Do!

Step 1: Prank 1:The Squirt

Picture of Prank 1:The Squirt

If you have a sink with a sprayer, put a piece of tape around the handle when nobody's looking. This automatically keeps the nozzle in spray-mode. Make sure the nozzle is pointing up and outward. The next person to use the sink will get a splash! Too funny!

Step 2: Prank 2:Raining Cups

Now in a cabinet with cups in it tilt some sups so that they are leaning on the cabinet when you close the caibnet door. The Next person to open the door will get a nice surprise of raining cups.(hopefully not yourself)

Step 3: Prank 3:Got Milk?

If your milk comes in a cardboard container, add a few drops of food coloring. It's harmless April Fool's joke but the results are pretty colorful.

Step 4: Prank 4:Look What I Can Do!

Ask your victim, er.. friend to put a quarter on a piece of paper and, without removing their finger, trace the coin with a pencil or marker. Repeat the "test" with a few fingers. After that's done, get the victim to pick up the quarter and roll it along the bridge of their nose. Then quietly snicker behind their back as they walk around with a black line along their nose. Don't use a permanent marker beacuse that's not cool.

Step 5: Glued Quarter

This one is fun and easy just put some super glue to the bottom of a quarter and put it somewhere and watch as helpless people try to pick it up and cant!

my brother did this a lot he glued probably 5 quarters to the side walk and watched people try to get them. He even used a dollar once.

killersquirel11 (author)2010-04-06

Even better is when you tie a piece of fishing line to a dollar bill, set it on a sidewalk, hide in a nearby bush, and give it a little yank whenever someone tries to pick it up.

Mplinnc (author)2010-04-02

I just did that to my dad like a minute ago it was funny

Apple_4_life (author)2010-03-29

 LOL this is a version of a prank ive seen in a book, only you have one clean quarter and a quarter with marker of pencil on it, you are rubbing the clean quarter on your nose and making it seem like it feels good, ur victim comes up asks to try it and you hand them the quarter with marker of pencil and they get it on their face!!!!

Kaiven (author)2008-09-11

I want to try the glued quarter and... cups!

extremegtafan (author)Kaiven2008-10-15

Somebody tried the quarter thing at our school. I attempted to pick one up. It didn't move. I got mad. I develop super strength when I'm mad. I found a piece of metal. That quarter flew across the room at about 40 mph.

beehard44 (author)extremegtafan2010-03-29

tanmanknex (author)extremegtafan2009-05-17

(Note: if you found you got 2 of these comments, I had to delete the last one and redo it because of a huge mistake I made.)

If you want a really good prank, check out my instructable on Manure Spray. Although, it doesn't have any manure in it. It just smalls a lot like it. And mold.

fireblast_1212 (author)2009-01-16

I glued a quarter to the sidewalk in front of my house and some old lady came walking by. She tried to get it off but failed and finally whacked at it with her came. It still didn't come off.

beehard44 (author)fireblast_12122010-03-29


p.s. lola means grandmom

lucki9 (author)2009-03-23

The quarter one is great. We did the same thing at a community pool. We use epoxy instead and put it right in front of the vending machine. We tricked most of the lifeguards, patrons, and even managers. But after 3 years a kid finally got on his belly and took it out with his teeth. But now that the pool is empty, me and my friends are gonna put a quarter on the bottom and watch kids try to dive down and get it. Its gonna be a great summer!!!!

beehard44 (author)lucki92010-03-29

no, glue a BUNCH, no.... spare a few hundred quarters? do it on the kiddie pool cuz it's not that deep

brookeg2012 (author)lucki92009-03-24

ahaha nice going!

MrPyro1010 (author)brookeg20122009-05-30

haha my dad did this at his work and they kept on trying to get it .... until one =guy brought out a chisel!!

Madrias357 (author)MrPyro10102009-08-14

Even better is to glue a pile of dropped change on the ground, as if you had a hole in your pocket. Fun to watch people trying to pick it up.

bowmaster (author)2009-02-22

One of my favorite pranks is to get one of those firecrackers that have the strings on the sides to detonate it and put them on every door in the house.

qwertyzzz18 (author)bowmaster2009-05-31

Put it on the garage door!

bowmaster (author)qwertyzzz182009-05-31

Even better extend the strings on a bunch by different amounts so it sounds like a machine gun.

mettaurlover (author)bowmaster2009-06-07

or, for an anti-burgler trap for your walkway, if you have a few lying around, rig a few paintball guns to a tripwire and make them aim at the same spot. this can be done in a more safe and april fools way by replacing the paintball guns with marshmallow or water guns.

bowmaster (author)mettaurlover2009-06-08

What's wrong with real guns?

mettaurlover (author)bowmaster2009-06-08

not very prankish and they're less legal than paintball guns.

CapnTac (author)mettaurlover2010-02-24

I think he meant for an anti-burglar trap. 

beehard44 (author)CapnTac2010-03-29

better use a bazooka with the business end facing your target. AND dont trip it... thats just plain stupid. seriously.

beehard44 (author)2010-03-29

i tried the glued quarter but with a 10 peso coin (i live in the Philippines) and i glued it down with a really thin coat of really hot hot glue (lust leave it plugged for 10 minutes, you'll get it really hot)

armylifer (author)2010-03-26

Sran Wrap is the best... Saran Wrap (tightly) the top half of an open doorway and watch someone try to walk in.  Saran Wrap toilets (under the seat) was popular way back in high school. 

pneu6 (author)2010-03-19

you could also tape a peice of thread to each of the cups so that when they pick up one for a drink, they will bring down an entire cupboard full.

Pyro the maniac (author)2009-03-21

My milk comes from cows

no .... really?

zascecs (author)brookeg20122010-03-12

Well, you don't have to be so sarcastic. There is something called soy milk... 

No! i was joking

then where does it come from?!?!?! ;P

timothymh (author)2010-02-13

 Using a pencil for this works great too. It's best if you make up some nonsense about concentrating and finding your inner balance, that sort of thing.

Monkey T. (author)2008-05-15

dude, this one's great! I learned to tell the victim that if you do this, when you flip the coin, it will show heads or tails (their choice), and you have to "connect" with the coin, so roll it on your face, hehe.
