Step 1:

Cut two roughly square pieces of cling film.

Step 2:

Wrap the two pieces of cling film around the toilet bowl (lift the toilet seat out of the way first ). Try to make it as tightly stuck as possible. Put one piece near the front and the other near the back so that it covers everywhere.

Step 3:

Write "April Fools!!!", or whatever you want and then stick it on the inside of the toilet lid with sellotape.

Step 4:

You're finished! Who ever goes to the toilet next will get a big shock.

    I was in the Navy many, many years ago. When at sea on the aircraft carriers I served on it was standard practice to use red lighting in the heads (the bathrooms) after dark.

    Aircraft carriers often run at night with no lights showing for exercises and whatnot. Also, the red lights make it safer for deck crew who might need to take a quick leak during night flight ops to return to the deck.

    We used to pack and wrap equipment in bubble wrap and stretch wrap. Our stretch wrap was red :-)

    Placing a sheet of that wrap across the front of urinal was a guaranteed method of wetting anyone who used that urinal. The red wrap was impossible to see under red lights, while the clear had a slight sheen to it.

    Also I am new to instructables, am I able to change the picture?

    Sorry, I tried the prank twice and the first time had the plastic wrap over the seat, it wasn't as good but I accidentally used the wrong picture

    This is a clever idea!

    But why is the cling wrap over the seat too? I think that will give away the prank too soon! :\
