25 Prank Ideas That Are Too Good Not To Try

ADVERTISEMENT

There is a little prankster in every single one of us. And prank ideas are here to release that prankster with a bang! But before you start exploring your prankster lifestyle — learn the positive (yes, positive) effects pranks can have.

For the prankster — quality pranks can benefit your mental health. If the trick is fun for you, your stress level will drop. Also, you will look happier since prank ideas that go as planned will put a smile on your face. If the prank goes wrong — you will learn how to deal with an awkward situation.

For the surrounding people — innocent prank ideas will provide a chance to let out some laughter. However, please don’t go over the top with them. Laughter is subjective. Even the best April Fools’ pranks can ruffle some feathers on an average day. Before pulling something, get to know the audience you are dealing with. Don’t pull office pranks in your home.

Knowing the benefits, don’t go over the board with the prank ideas. Below, we have compiled the pranks that are fun and harmless (for the most part). However, stick till the end to learn more about the pranks themselves and on whom you can pull them. So, let the inner prankster out in the best possible way!

What Do Good Prank Ideas Have in Common?

If you partake in pranking, you might as well stick to the prank ideas that are at least good. However, some people need help finding them in the first place. After all, with so many ideas floating on the internet — you have to know the characteristics of good prank ideas. For beginners, you might want to stick to two — innocent and unique.

As long as the prank is harmless, then the prank is good. After all, if you harm a person, it’s not a prank but a bully tactic instead. However, if you injure someone physically or emotionally, apologize immediately. It is better for the person to be annoyed than hurt. In this case, good prank call ideas are the way to go.

However, what truly brings out laughter is originality. The more original the prank — the funnier it will be. Here, you might need some creativity. Luckily, the list of prank ideas we have compiled will surely get your creative juices flowing. Either draw inspiration from them or use the ones we already listed.
