You'd better watch out!
If you're planning on playing pranks with your parents, keep a check on their mood. Things might work wrongly for you if they are not in a sporting mood.
We kids love to prank with friends and teachers at school. But how about joking around with mum and dad?! It helps in keeping the home atmosphere light and joyful. A well-planned and successfully executed prank can boost up everything, and there's no harm in having a little fun. But we need to be very careful, as not to hurt our parents, physically or mentally, or cross our lines in the context of playing pranks.

Gone are the days when moms used to scare the hell out of everything if you jump in front of her and scream 'boo'. Yeah, may be it still works for some. But get crazier this time, with a logistic touch to your idea.

Read these funny pranks, and plan some shocking surprises for your parents.
Party Fun!
In a family gathering or party, convince your cousins and jolly aunts to make calls on one of your parents' cell numbers, and tell them to ask for "Bubba". Make them block their numbers with *67. After the party, call your parents yourself and say "Hey, it's Bubba here, are there any messages for me?
Tring Tring!
If you have those non-wireless phones, wrap the button you press to hang up the phone on the receiver with tape so that when they pick up the phone, it keeps ringing.
Thrilling Breakfast!
Do your parents love having cereal for breakfast? We have an idea for you. Add drops of food coloring into the bottom of a cereal bowl, probably the same color as the bowl itself. When they would pour milk into a bowl, he/she would get shocked seeing the milk turn into a strange color.
Apple Twin
Who doesn't like caramelized apples? But who knows if it's apple or something else, after it has been caramelized? Make them yummy caramelized onions!
Snow-white Hair
This one's for your mum. Fill the front section of the blow dryer with baby powder. The moment she turns it on, there will be a splash of snow on her hair!
Faux Coke!
Have those empty coke bottles at home? Take one and fill it with Sprite. To make it look Cola-like, add soy sauce till it appears like Coke. Don't forget to refrigerate it to give a natural feel.
Foiled Pillow
If it's sleep time, you can play around with pillows. Unwrap a pillow off its pillowcase, and wrap it with a sheet of aluminum foil. Put the pillow back into its cover. Wait for your parents to lie down. Watch them make strong metallic sounds, as if cracking their heads to the pillow.
Saucy Murder
For this one, promise me you'll enact nicely? This should be done in presence of your parent. Grab a bottle of ketchup and go for taking a shower. Sprinkle sauce everywhere; you can use water too. Shout "Murder Murder", and let the door open. See them tremble. Don't forget to put your clothes on!
Cheesy Plastic Wrap
If it's Sunday, pamper your parents. Make them a cheese wrap or a sandwich, but don't remove the plastic wrap on the cheese! See them take the first bite. Note: Do keep real cheese wraps for them to calm them.
Swap it Up!
This one's a classic, but still works. Late in the evening, swap the salt container with that of sugar. Next morning, watch your parents start the day with salty coffee (or tea).
Creamy Face
Most people tend to wipe their face after waking up. Late in the night, spray some shaving cream on your victim's hand. If you are excited to see the reaction live, then wake them up by tickling their nose, may be with a feather.
Lingo Jumble
Grab one of your parents' phone. Jump to language settings, and shift to a foreign language. Chinese seems cool, ain't it? Watch them struggle with a new language!
Fiery Prank
Chillies remain to be the-forever-kinda ingredient of pranks. Make some cookies by yourself, stuffing in some finely chopped hot chilies. Serve the cookies, but don't forget to add a note that says "Do Not Eat - Very Hot!"
Minty Cookies
Grab any cream-filled cookies and scrape out the vanilla (or any other) filling. Replace it with white toothpaste, and allow the cookies to dry. A funny surprise for someone who is sweet-toothed!
Brewing Trouble
Coffee lovers at your home? Get some decaf and replace their coffee with the new coffee in the same container, for about a week. Then, switch back to espresso. Watch the fun!
