Trick or Treating Pranks
Give them a treat with a side of trick
A very scary practical joke is to have a child in your family jump in with a group of other (older) children or preferably teens as they come up to your door to trick or treat. Then "kidnap" that child by grabbing them, pulling them into the house and slamming the door. Have them struggle and scream. You will give the others a real fright!
Front Yard Scare
Dress up as a scarecrow and sit on a bench on the front porch. Put up a sign that says "take one" and hold a bowl of candy in your lap. Wait until a kid (not too young) comes up and takes a big handful. Then say in a scary voice, "I said take ONE!"
Another variation is to wear leaf camouflage and hide in the yard and jump up and surprise kids as they walk up to your door.

Practical Jokes and Pranks for a Halloween Party
In a bathroom that has a shower, place a lifelike mannequin or scary Halloween prop such as a ghoul behind the shower curtain. Either turn the faucet on a little so that it's dripping, or else place a noiseless battery operated fan inside the shower to make the curtain blow a little. If the dripping or blowing gets a guest to peek inside while taking care of their business they'll get quite the scary surprise.
Put red die on the back of a shirt to make it look like a considerable amount of blood. Wear that shirt and put a jacket or sweater over it. Start telling party-goers that you don't feel right and that you're really feeling sick and dizzy. Say you're over-heating and take your jacket off and put your head between your knees. Guests will freak out with fear that something is truly wrong with you until they hear your laughter.
