Pranks for Kids
1. Blech! Sprinkle a little salt on your kid’s toothbrushes the night before.
2. Where Am I? If your kids are heavy sleepers, put them in a different bed once they are asleep. Imagine their surprise waking up in the wrong bed the next morning!!
4. Where’s my Rice Krispies? Switch bagged cereal within their boxes and see how long it takes for your kids to find their favorite.
5. EEK! Buy realistic toy flies, spiders, etc and hid them in your kids’ lunches.
7. Goedemorgen! Change the language on your kids’ smart devices to a different one. Make sure you know who to change it back though!
