1. Water Trapped
Put your hand palm-down on a table and balance a full glass of water on the back of your hand. Challenge your friend to try balancing a glass of water on both palms. Help him put one glass of water on the back of one hand and another glass of water on the back of the other hand then walk away. They will be stuck there with no other option but to spill the water to escape.
2. Onion Candy
Get a set of small sized onions and clean the outer skin. Cover the onions in caramel and wait for it to dry. Serve the caramel covered onions in a tray with toothpicks for snacking. Your victim will think they are chocolate delights but be surprised to find out that they’re just onions.
3. Spray Tap
This is an old trick but it works every time. Cover a water tap with cellotape and leave an opening at the front. As someone turns on the tap, they will be sprayed with water.
4. Channel Change
A good trick one can do at home is to get identical remote controls for the television. As the person is watching their favourite show, hide somewhere close enough to the television but far enough so the person you’re playing the prank on won’t see you. Change the channel when they’re not looking. After doing this several times, the person may start to freak out.
5. Is That A Typo?
If your friend uses Microsoft Word often, go into the autocorrect settings on your friend’s computer and set it to change common words like “and” or “the” to ridiculous alternatives like “origami” or “Duck Dodgers”. You can even go the extra mile and replace them with foul language.
