Looking for a last minute April Fools Day prank? Then attempt to cast these timeless gags or pranks:

1. Glue coins to the floor and enjoy while hapless people try to pocket them!
2. Try this exchange formula for your family - Interchange the salt for sugar or add food colour or salt to the toothpaste. There are also interchanging the boxes for cereals, spices and the like especially if they are someone's favourite in the family.
4. Instead of putting up the signature Kick me poster behind someone, put up a special poster behind someone like Danger, Flu alert or even, if you are adventurous enough, Kiss Me I m beautiful.
5. You can add food colour to juice too, if your family drinks juice from a pitcher. Make sure you use edible food colour and that its as contrasting from the original juice as possible

Jesters at heart should take care to not attempt those pranks which can in any way harm the person being fooled, or become too huge an issue to subside with a simple April Fools Day warning. The pranks and gags are just an attempt to make the world a lighter place and so, should be those that do so, without becoming cruel jokes.

There are also specific April Fools Day pranks and gags for coworkers, family, friends, relatives, complete strangers (If you can pull a candid camera) boyfriends and girlfriends and the like. On the other hand, if you are still wondering where number three gag went, April Fools Day to you!
