Boys guide to Valentine pranks

Valentine pranks

This year I left the Valentine cards up to Addison for his 3rd grade class.  I wasn’t even going to push it if he didn’t want to bring anything at all.  This week he decided on Valentine pranks.  Yup, leave it up to a boy to prank his classmates on Valentine’s day.

So, here is your guide to making a Valentine prank in 4 easy steps.

1) Fold a rectangle into an envelope.  Tape the sides shut.  There is no such thing as too much tape when you are 9 years old.

 2)  Address your Valentines and write explicit instructions on how they should be opened.  Let the recipient know which end is up and how they should unfold the envelope.  Holding the envelope just right is essential in the prank outcome.

 3)  Add a treat and a prank.  The original idea was for a confetti canon to go off when the card is opened and confetti goes everywhere.  Once the prankster realized that a confetti canon wouldn’t work out, he decided on glitter because it would make “more of a mess”.

 4) Decorate with a fun Valentine sticker to through them off the track.  Your victim may be a little suspicious when they see all the instructions but that heart stickers says I’m just an innocent Valentine.

Now sit back and watch the hilarity ensue when your classmates open their Valentine and glitter pours all down their front.

    That is too funny! Hope none of your readers are parents of his classmates! 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness… if the kids open them in class, their teacher is going to LOVE you (or, rather, the clean-up crew will be loving you). Addison has such a good sense of humor 🙂

      Yup, I feel a little sorry for the custodian.
      He’s developing a funny sense of humor. Adam was tickled at this little stunt.

  3. If my kid did that- he would have to CLEAN it all up!! Our janitors are limited now that we have barely any money in our education budget these days… it’s awful.

    BUT- that is a PERFECT PRANK!!!! My sweet friend Lizzi from Considerings sent me a Christmas card that had GLITTER in it too!! She called it a glitter bomb!! Great minds think alike! 😉
