Silly Blue Bath Water Prank for Kids

I am always on the look out for fun ways to surprise my kids.

I love to hear them giggle – love it!

A “surprise” prank - or something that is completely unexpected – makes them giggle every time.

Prank for Kids

Change the color of the bath water!

Supplies Needed:

  • Cotton Swab
  • Gel Food Dye – we used blue

Swap the water aerator, it looks like a metal screen, on the underside of the faucet.  The heavier you apply the dye the brighter your water will be.  I just used a little bit as we wanted a surprise when the kids turned on the faucet – not blue skin.   If you want it to be a full tub of water, wait for the first swabbing of dye to dry, come back and add a second later.

The kids giggled hysterically as they watched me turn on the water in the tub getting ready for their baths.  I played dumb and made them explain what they were seeing which only made if *more* hysterical to a three year old (as if that were possible).

Made my day!

Have you made your kids laugh recently??
