Ever wanted to have your name remembered at your old high school for future generations to come? And you wanted to be that guy that was remembered for pulling that infamous senior prank that shocked the whole school. Just check out this list for some of the craziest, funniest, and most controversial senior pranks out there.

*Senior pranks can be cause for trouble within the school or law.  Make sure the prank is appropriate and doesn’t harm any person, property, or animal.  I am not held responsible for any of the punishment, damage, or any other causes of these pranks.  Trespassing, vandalism, or any other crime is not acceptable in the process of carrying out a prank.

Fulfilling the Prank

A great idea for a senior prank is to fill an office, classroom, gym, or car full of balloons, popcorn, packing peanuts, or any other item that consumes up space.  This is a hilarious prank that is pretty harmless. 

Dixie Cups

This classic prank will also create problems within the school.  Buy 700-1000 Dixie cups or how many you find appropriate.  Fill them up with a little bit of water, but not to much.  And place them all next to each other but very close so that you cannot step between the cups without knocking them down.  Make sure you start on the opposite side of the room and make your way backwards toward the exit!

Bouncy Halls?

Order and Buy thousands of bouncy balls, most likely online.  Get a good group of friends and distribute them amongst each other.  Plan out a certain time in the day where everyone is spread out throughout the school and then just make it rain bouncy balls!  This prank would definitely cause chaos and confusion, but would be hilarious. 

Saran Wrap

An easy prank would be to saran wrap other student’s cars.  Juniors would be the primary target seeing they are the other grade that can drive.  Faculty may be a risky idea, but they would be an option.  This may be one of the more expensive pranks, but it deserves to be on the list.

Forking the school yard would be another senior prank.  Students would go to a store and buy hundreds of forks, and during the middle of the night they would stick them into the school’s courtyard, lobby, or football field.  This prank would be a risky one seeing that it could be considered vandalism.  A vulgar message may cross the line. 

Just Classic

This classic prank is known all over.  I don’t think I need to explain, but I will.  Buy a bunch of toilet paper rolls and just go crazy.  You can never buy too much toilet paper.  Throw them all over the school’s building, trees, and anything else that works.

Camping Out

This prank involves getting as many seniors as possible and camping out for a night in the parking lot or any other good area.  This would be a fun prank that seems pretty harmless if everything goes right.  Grilling out, chilling, and playing some sports would make this a fun night.

School for Sale?

This prank involves putting as many for sale signs as possible in the front lawn of your school.  This would be a pretty humorous prank not to mention harmless.  Another option is to put a real estate ad in the local newspaper. 

Vaseline Doors

For this prank you need to get a group of seniors, and while class is in session this group needs to run around with numerous jars of Vaseline and rub it all over door handles and lockers.  This will definitely cause students to be mad and will leave a mark in your school’s history.

Better Post-It Note It

This final prank is pretty self-explanatory.  You need to get a whole group of seniors and buy a bunch of post-it note packages.  Then during school sometime or after when no one is in the hallways cover everything with post-it notes.  Completely yellow-out the school hallway and it will look flawless.

    The seniors at my school decided to have a food fight. Needless to say, the teachers weren\’t very happy haha. Also, you could get all the seniors that have cell phones to put them in their lockers/in their pockets/bags and have them all set to go off at a certain time.
