15 Hilarious Pranks For Kids To Try Today

When you’re creative enough with your pranks, you can really make yourself and the people you play them on laugh, and everyone can have a silly but fun time. 

If you’re looking for some pranks to try for yourself, then you have come to the right place! We have put together a list of 15 hilarious pranks that are perfect for kids.

These pranks are overall harmless and there shouldn’t really be any consequences on playing them. 

That being said, it is important to remember that pranks should never harm anyone and they should be easy to clean up.

It’s all fine and good to make a joke or pull a prank, but if the person being pranked doesn’t see the funny side of it, then it can be very unkind.

Just keep this in mind before you pull any pranks and think about the people around you! Don’t do anything that you wouldn’t like done to you! 

1. Balloon Room

This is a great prank to start off with because it’s easy to clean up and no one will get hurt! You can do this prank at any time really, but it also works really well for surprise parties. 

All you need to do is get a lot of balloons (and we mean a lot!), blow them up and fill an entire room with them.

You get double points for this one if absolutely no one sees you doing it, even the people you aren’t pulling the prank on. 

Your victim will be completely shocked when they open the door and a load of balloons comes piling out! 

2. Sleeping Mustache

If you do decide this is the prank you want to do, just make sure that you are using washable markers or any markers that are not permanent! 

For this prank, you just need to make sure that the person you are playing it on is sleeping. Once you have caught them in this position, carefully draw a mustache on their face.

Don’t wake them up! If they wake up, the prank won’t work! 

Once you have successfully drawn the mustache on their face, you just have to see how long it takes for them to notice it. This is sure to get a lot of giggles!
