Participating in lighthearted pranks within the family can serve as an excellent way to strengthen bonds and forge enduring memories. Children delight in orchestrating pranks on their parents, savoring the hearty laughter that follows. In some instances, parents may have pushed their prank skills to such extremes that it genuinely spooked their children.
Sadly, most parents recorded these for laughable memories but ended up taking it too far.
1. Sneaky Mom Ate All the Halloween Candy
Imagine knocking on tens of doors for trick-or-treating candy, stashing it away for the morning, and waking up to find your parents ate all of it!
Some parents pranked their kids by telling them that they had eaten all their candy. There were enough tears to irrigate the Sahara Desert.
2. Horror Movie Re-enacted
Watching a horror movie is likely to give some kids nightmares. Some parents decided to manufacture the nightmare after their kids watched the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
They walked into their rooms at night with chainsaws.
3. Easter Bunny Scare
Kids happily painting some Easter eggs were suddenly drawn to something strange and eery knocking on their window—the Easter bunny.
That’s not how they expected to end their night, but their parents had other plans. There was a lot of scared screaming involved.
4. Computer Scary Face
If your kid can’t seem to stay off the screen, you may want to try giving them a scary face on the monitor at the end of a video they enjoy watching.
One dad did that; we don’t know if he had been forgiven for scaring his kid that much.
5. Jumping Out Of The Shadows
Most kids are afraid of the dark, and any prank that involves jumping at them in the dark will definitely bring the scare out of them.
That is exactly what one dad loved to do, and the scared, screaming kids were enough reward for his prank ego.
6. Water Above The Door
You walk home after a long day at school doing Math and Science and just want a snack before settling down to do your homework. As you open the door, a basin full of water falls on your head and your books.
That was one parent’s idea of a fun way to welcome their daughter home. She wasn’t amused.
7. Murder Scene
Most kids are scared of blood as they are of the monsters under the bed.
That fact didn’t deter one adult from creating a murder scene complete with fake blood to prank a child.
8. X-Box Prank
Getting an X-Box as a gift is most kids’ dream, and one kid was excited to get one. Sadly, the unboxing didn’t end well, as the parents had wrapped sweaters in the box instead of the coveted gadget.
People online were not impressed and contributed money to get the young lad an X-Box.
9. Interrupting a Performance
Sometimes, a solo performance at home is so good that you don’t remember there are other people in the house with you.
One boy was startled to tears when his parents surprised him mid-performance of a Britney Spears hit.
