- Toothpaste-filled Oreos: Replace the cream filling in Oreos with toothpaste and serve them to your unsuspecting friends or family members.
- Fake bug: Place a fake bug (cockroach, spider, etc.) in a lampshade, under a cup, or inside someone’s shoe for a harmless scare.
- Switch salt and sugar: Swap the contents of the salt shaker and sugar bowl in your kitchen and watch as people unknowingly add the wrong ingredient to their food or drink.

- Frozen cereal: Make a bowl of cereal the night before, add milk, and freeze it. In the morning, serve the frozen cereal to an unsuspecting breakfast eater.
