There are rules. You can't try to trick everyone. Pick one prank and have fun with it. And don't dish it out if you can't take it! It can't be something that destroys anything. It can't make a huge mess (any messes have to be cleaned up by the prankster anyway) and it shouldn't be anything gross or embarrassing.
They know that Husband and I like to play pranks on them too. In years past we've fed them "sushi" and grilled cheese made from toasted pound cake and frosting. This year, BigBoy helped me fool the big kids with some wormy apples. The trick was to only have it poking out a little bit.
When Sunshine picked her's up and showed it to me, I very slowly pulled the worm out for them all to see. The "ewwwwwwwws" of disgust were just hysterical! They caught on quickly when they saw us laughing.
These kids don't know that there is one other joke left in store... "fish sticks" for dinner! It is Friday, you know!
