Picture of Pringles: Once you prank, you can't stop!
April fool is coming so I made this to prank my friends and co-workers on that day.  It's simple to make and everything you need is commonly available at home.

-Can of Pringles
-2 Rubber bands (same size, about 3" in diameter)
-1 empty soda can
-Small piece of card board
-About 1 ft of fishing line
-2 tennis balls

-small nail

Step 1:

Picture of
Eat all the delicious Pringles!!  

Be sure to safe the seal and lid.

Step 2:

Picture of
Put the Pringle can on top of the card board and draw around it.

Step 3:

Picture of
Cut the card board out a little smaller than the circle you just drew so it will fit inside the can.  

Then staple the rubber bands onto the piece of card board.

Step 4:

Picture of
Use the small nail to poke two holes just under the silver rim about 1/2" apart.  

Do the same on the opposite side across from the holes.

Step 5:

Picture of
Put the fishing line through the two holes and tie around the rubber bands.  Cut the extra fishing line off.

Do the same on the opposite side.

Step 6:

Picture of
Put the two tennis balls into the can.  The tennis balls are for weight so when you friend pick up the can of Pringles it wouldn't feel empty.  You can use something else but tennis balls fit well so I used them.

Step 7:

Picture of
Put the empty soda can on the card board launching platform and put the seal and lid on top of the soda can.

Push down and closed the lid.

The Pringle can is now LOADED! and ready to scare your friends when they open it.

Hmmm could just use pringles instead of the soda can to add some mess to this prank.
kaway27 (author)  SacredDemon2 years ago
You can do that but you will be wasting all the delicious Pringles.
True, an excellent point you make indeed haha
Looooove it...

Something you can do, you can take the cap from hairspray or other similarly sized canisters and glue it to the top of the can. then fill it with glitter or confetti for a nice effect.
kaway27 (author)  JonB192 years ago
Make it and let me know how it works.
I just made my own & will see how well it's received at work on Monday.
