Best Senior Pranks- Highschool Pranks
Senior pranks tend to be an unofficial tradition at most high schools, similar to the unofficial senior skip day. It is crucial to find the perfect prank; one must realized the fine line between mischievous and vandalism or criminal.
No senior prank should cause harm to a living creature and all of the students should be willing to pay for any accidental damages that may result from the prank.
Off the top of my head I can think of a few funny senior pranks:
- Bubble bath in the school fountain.
- Let mice run through the halls (but this may fall under that no harm to a living creature rule depending on how the prank's carried out)
- Let thousands of crickets loose in the halls (crickets are actually rather cheap in bulk)
- Tuna in the ventilation ducts (best if done before a long break- winter or spring)
- Fill a tree in the front of the school with bras of jock straps
Best Senior Pranks
Some of the better senior pranks take work, time, and energy. But, if you want to be noticed and remembered as a school legacy, these will definitely be the ones you will want to consider.
Taking something large a part and reassemble it in an impossible location. Usually, cars on roofs are a popular choice. But, remember the larger the object and the smaller the location, the better the prank.
Rewire or reprogram things to behave erratically or unexpectedly. Usually one would consider changing morning announcements, bell schedules, and video broadcasts. But, again, no prank should result in the harm of the school's technology equipment.
Subtle pranks pulled off during the graduation ceremony. These pranks should not disrupt or demean the ceremony, as it may result in the holding of your diploma (yes even after technically graduating, the officials can hold back your diploma). You may consider handing small items, such as pennies with the year, jelly beans, or other small trinkets to the principal or other official as each graduate goes to shake their hand.
Fill a space with an unusual or unexpected object. These pranks can be quite humorous. You may consider placing a ton of "For Sale" signs on the school's lawn; filling your Principal's office with balloons, popcorn, or styrofoam peanuts; write the graduation year on every car in the parking lot with a mild soap or specialized marker.
Capture the rival school's mascot. Dress the rival mascot in your school's colors or altering its appearance n any way to pay homage to your school. If you choose a mascot prank, make sure not to do any real harm to the mascot, as it is still a school's property.
Pay homage to your graduation year. Put salt rock on the grass and write out your graduation year. The salt rock will kill the grass with a day or so, and the year will soon appear.
Have a number of smaller pranks coordinated to wreak havoc on your school in a short period of time. By coordinating many small pranks in one day, you will be noted as a prank mastermind. Plus, it allows for different social groups to each play their own prank on a specified day. Everyone is involved in the fun.
Pranks that involve animals make the festivities all the more interesting. A class animal prank would include a cow, pig, or chicken being let loose through the school. You may consider several animals being released throughout the school, or have school teachers and officials looking for a missing animal. Let 9 baby pigs loose in the school, have each number randomly through 10; one number will be left out but that pig doesn't exist. But, remember if you decide to use animals in your senior prank, make sure that no animal is harmed.
