What Are the Best (Good-Natured) Pranks to Pull at Home?

Pin it button big

We think life at home should be fun and light-hearted for maximum enjoyableness. That's why a few kind pranks pulled on guests or roommates could be a fun way to lighten the mood at home. Emphasis on kind.

We were tickled to read a comment in this post: 9 Adorable DIY Projects Sure to Put a Smile on Your Face from Apartment Therapy reader hitch:

My first thought with that dinosaur plate was to pile things on top so you can't see the head and just wait for the reaction from the first person who uncovers it. So fun!

(This is coming from someone whose father hides a small plastic dinosaur in his kitchen cabinets to terrify anyone who dares open one - it's never in the same place twice. I am a truly mean person, so as soon as I find the right dinosaur I plan on doing this in my own kitchen.)
Light-hearted, good-natured and involving dinosaurs! All the ingredients for a great prank in our book! But we're curious — do you have any pranks from your childhood home (or current home) that you play on folks? Maybe you want to share some ideas to inspire someone else's good-natured antics?

Remember — keep it nice! Don't suggest anything that might damage personal property, injury bodies or insult feelings!
