PRANK 1: The Alarm Clock Prank:



No one likes the sound of their alarm clock.  Why not set 4 or 5 to go off at different when everyone is sleeping?  

  • Picture this, so the first one goes off, someone wakes up to find it and shut it off.  
  • Then 5 minutes later the second one goes off.  
  • Wait about 30 minutes and the third one goes off.  

Make sure to set them for times that you know for sure everyone will be sleeping.  Just be aware, it is going to wake you up too (unless you put earplugs in!).

PRANK 2: The Scary Movie Prank:

  • Once everyone’s settled into the movie, excuse yourself to the bathroom, but actually go outside.  
  • Try not to let anyone know you are going.  
  • The lights should already be off (because that is the best way to watch a scary movie!).  
  • Stand outside of the window and at the right moment, knock on the window loudly!  
  • This is even better if you bring along a scary Halloween mask!

PRANK 3: Cake in the Face Prank:


You have to wait until someone is asleep to pull this one off.  

  • You need cake (or anything soft that will leave a mess on their face).  
  • Gently and quietly, place a piece of cake in one hand (or both, because you don’t know which one they will use to scratch).  
  • Then, tickle her face with a feather (or even your fingers gently).  
  • You are going to bust out laughing when she smashes her own face with cake!  
  • Be ready for payback!

PRANK 4 The Pizza Delivery Prank:

This one is old school!  

  • First, pick someone who you want the pizza delivered to.  
  • Call up and order the pizza, be sure not to give your name and address!  They might want your phone number.  
  • Be aware, some places these days have caller ID and will know your number.  
  • Maybe using the local place rather than chain pizza delivery might be best.  
  • The person you ordered the pizza for won’t know what is going on!

PRANK 5: The Oreo Prank:

You have to do this before everyone gets there (or before you arrive to the party if you are not hosting it).  

  • Take a few packages out of the Oreo package and remove the cream.  Ready?  
  • Replace it with white toothpaste!  
  • You might not want to try these yourself, just sit back and watch the faces of your friends as they bite into a snack!  
  • Maybe you can covertly snap a pic of the moment they realize their Oreo is not cream filled!

Be prepared, some of your friends might not like to be pranked, these are some of the more tame pranks that you could do.  Hopefully everyone is a good sport!  Just know that at the next sleepover, they might get you back!

  1. These do sound like pretty fun pranks to pull! lol I don’t think I’ll be sharing them with my preteen anytime soon or I’m sure I’ll be eating toothpaste Oreos! lol

  2. My hubby is a major prankster. He’s done them all.

  3. Sleepovers wasn’t part of my childhood and it was not in my daughter’s either but these sound like interesting activities – albeit ones I am not too keen to have pulled on me.

  4. Pranks are fun so long as they are not so over the top! Just remember to play safe, lol.

  5. My daughter loves to do pranks, so I’ll have to clue her into these. I’ve done pranks, but not these so I’m laughing!

  6. The pizza prank can be dangerous. My sister and a friend of hers did that when I was 9 or so (she’s 5 years older) and the place figured it out where the call came from and the cops came to the house. They had to pay for the pizzas and to this day I don’t think my parents ever found out

  7. Funny tricks , when I was a kid we love to paint the face of the ones who sleep first and we use marker or sometimes lipstick .. Ohh how i miss those fun days 🙂

  8. Oh, this brings back the memories of sleepovers. Usually, we just did the finger in hot water trick. I can’t say that we tried any of these!
