But play a prank on someone anyway

April Fools Day can be a lot of fun, but it can also be overwhelming. I never know where to start or what to do. So I played some pranks around the office that are safe, fun, and easy to replicate.

Eye roll:

Googly eyes are fun, that’s a fact of life. I wanted to bring more fun into the office so I put googly eyes on practically everything. The tape dispenser, the notebooks, the fan, a press badge.

Secret invasion:

I bought nine rubber frogs and numbered them one through 10. I hid them around the office, but no one could find number eight (that’s because it didn’t exist).

Mouse trap:

This one was probably my favorite. I used a sticky note but you can use anything, a piece of paper, a picture, whatever is small enough to cover up the sensor of the mouse. After that you can watch the victim struggle to get it to work; try offering helpful hints like, “Click the right button three times,” or you can prove yourself a genius and “fix” it for them.
