Every year I have to be THAT mom and have a little fun with my kids. Life just isn’t the same if you do not spend time having fun. I think Christmas time is the perfect time to have a little good clean fun with the boys. I wanted to share some of my best prank ideas to pull on the kids.
Empty Box Wrapped Up
Okay, this one might be just plain mean, but it’s hilarious. Wrap a huge box with wrapping paper and place it under the tree. Don’t say anything and let your kids open it Christmas morning. I’m just saying that you have to have something amazing for them to open after pulling a prank like this.
Take things from around the house and wrap them up. Surprise the kids about a week before Christmas and tell them you are having Christmas early. They may just love opening a box of brownie mix a week before Christmas.
Wake Them Up Early
Remember all of those mornings your kids have woken you up early to open presents? Now is your chance to wake up your kids early. Don’t wake them up TOO early, but 5 AM is always a great start. It’s great to get a reaction to them when it’s the adults waking them up early to open presents.
One of the best pranks to pull on the kiddos at Christmas time is to gift them with a really bad gift. Have a sponge lying around? Use that to help prank your kids this Christmas season.
Pranking your family on Christmas morning can be fun. I always say to use your imagination and everything will go just perfectly. Some may ask “why would you do such a thing?” Well, it’s all in good clean fun and I’m hoping my boys will look back and laugh someday!
