Top 10 funniest practical jokes to pull on your dad
Surprising your dad can be funny. (surprise image by iMAGINE from

The best thing about playing a practical joke on your father is that he still has to love you afterward. A practical joke can be a great surprise for your father on April Fools' Day, and it is a great way to celebrate father's day in a lighthearted way.

You should be careful when playing a practical joke, even on someone as good humoured as your father. Be sure not to do anything that could pose a danger to your father, yourself, or anyone else.

Water Surprise

Put a rubber band around the handle of the kitchen sink sprayer. When your dad goes to wash the dishes he'll be surprised with a splash of water to his face.

Worm in the Apple

Cut a small hole in an apple and insert a gummy worm into it. Then put the apple in your father's lunch before he leaves for work.

Wooden Cake

Surprise your father with a cake on his birthday. The real surprise will happen when he tries to cut into it and finds that it is just a block of wood covered in icing. Have a real cake on hand to cheer him up after the disappointment.

Exploding Golf Balls

"Exploding" golf balls are a classic gag to play on fathers who golf. Substitute his golf balls for an "exploding" golf ball made out of compacted powder. When he hits the ball it will dissolve into a cloud of smoke.

Toilet Training

Carefully cover the bowl of the toilet with a layer of cling film. When your father goes to use the toilet he's in for a real surprise.

Bad Milk

Add a few drops of food colouring to your milk. When your dad pours a glass tell him it looks fine to you and drink the glass of milk.

Lobster Special

If you can secure an empty lobster carcase it is a great practical joke tool. Try leaving it peaking out from the cushion of your father's favourite chair.

Whoopee Chushion

When in doubt, whoopee cushions are always funny. Try placing it on your father's seat before dinner in order to give everyone a pre-dinner surprise.

Automatic Door

Tie a bicycle inner tube from the inside handle of a door to a solid object. When your dad opens the door it will fly open, pulling him with it.

A Hairy Moment

Add a bit of baby powder to the nozzle of the hair dryer. When your dad goes to dry his hair after a shower he'll get blasted with a white cloud that will turn his hair instantly white.
