Draw a Spider On The Toilet Paper
 

A post shared by David Bolanos (@db_twentythree) on

Have a roommate or family member that is afraid of bugs? Use a marker to draw a spider on the toilet paper roll. Just be sure to remember to roll it back up, so that they are thoroughly terrified when they discover it while on the toilet. Feel free to let out an evil laugh when you hear them scream through the door... you earned it.

Freeze Their Computer Mouse
 

A post shared by jordanmblythe (@jordanmblythe) on

No high tech hacking here – just cover the computer mouse sensor with a single Post-it Note. They’ll be trying to figure out why their computer is frozen for ages. You can even write a tiny “Happy April Fools” on the Post-it for good measure! Your coworkers may hate you, but at least you helped them procrastinate for a little while... right?
