Conclusion Halloween Kid Pranks:

So which kid pranks above are your favorite? I found them all hysterical, but let me know which one is yours.

Some common ones I’ve enjoyed doing are:

  1. Panty Hose over my Head and hiding in the closet at night
  2. Downloading the T.V. Remote App and changing the Channel from the other room
  3. Putting clear tape around the kitchen sink faucet sprayer
  4. Does your Family love Sushi? Replace and fill the inside of a Cucumber Sushi Roll with Wasabi
  5. Kids addicted to the Computer? Go to the mouse settings on the computer and switch the setting for which button clicks to the opposite. Then change the speed to super slow. Next, put some clear tape on the bottom of their mouse sensor, put the battery in backwards and use clear tape to hold down the CTRL key. This will keep them confused for at least 10 minutes.
  6. Do you kids bring sanitizer to school? Replace it with clear glue.
  7. Put transparent nail polish over the soap in the shower. It won’t lather and they’ll think the soap is broken.
  8. Put some green and black marker over their sandwich bag. When they get to school they’ll think you gave them a moldy sandwich
  9. Put a “For Sale” sign up in front of your house when they come home from school
  10. Change the ring-tone on your child’s phone to the most embarrassing song. Maybe Justin Bieber Baby. Now make sure the ringer is on and when they get on the school bus, call them. Want an additional tip, change the password so they can’t answer it.
