Lockdown Diary Day 6 – Things to do – Pranks


Getting a little bored hanging out around the house thanks to the Coronavirus lockdown? Starting to feel a little fed up with the rest of the family? Here’s our advice: set up and play some (friendly) pranks. Just make sure you film them for us!


Our favourite Coronavirus lockdown pranks:


Hide two things, but tell them you hid three

And see how long they take to notice…

Tape something to the bottom of their computer mouse, rendering it temporarily unusable

You can just use a piece of tape if you want, or you can tape a picture of yourself on there.


Make Suds-Less Soap

Did you know? When you cover a bar of soap with clear nail polish, it won’t produce a single bubble. We love the confusion of this! Via Love to Know.


Water them down

Our favourite water prank: make them look for something inside a water bottle and then squeeze so their face gets soaked. Watch the best version here:
