HUMAN GYMNASTICS

HUMAN CHAIR
One person lies on their back with their legs up and the other person sits down on the back of their thighs so that the bottom person is the chair.



THE FREEZE
Sit on your knees and push over to the side so your legs angle out towards the right. Put one hand in between your legs and the other by your left hip. Lay your palms flat and stretch your arms out straight so your legs lift up off the ground.

THE SUPERMAN
One person lies on their back with their legs bent above them. The other person lies with their tummy/hips on the first person’s feet. Hold hands.

HOW TO TAKE HEADLESS PICS

This is a really easy trick to pull off with a mate and makes for some funny cellphone pics!

Here’s how to achieve a headless photo.

You’ll need a couch or something to hide behind, and one of you will need to be wearing a collared shirt.

The person in the collared shirt is the body.They should pop their collar up and sit behind the couch with their head bent as far forward as possible so that you can see it past the shirt collar and they look like they don’t have a head at all.

Then the person who is going to be the head needs to rest their chin on the back of the couch.Now it’s time to snap away and get some funny headless pics!





HOW TO PUT YOUR EYE OUT

This isn’t really how to put your eye out… but how to make it look like you have!This is a good trick to play in front of your friends.It’s a bit messy though so best to try outdoors or at the table.

You’ll need a small cream container – the kind you sometimes get with takeaway coffee and tea.When your friend isn’t looking, poke a small hole in the lid, or peel the lid back just a tiny bit.Conceal it under your hand and make a fist but don’t let any milk leak out yet!

Start complaining about how your eye is really sore… or you feel like there’s something stuck in there… Then lift up your fist and start rubbing your eye… say it’s super sore… and then… squeeze the cream container so that the milk drips out everywhere and totally freaks out your friend!!


PHOTO PUNKING

Photo punking is the art of smiling nicely for a photo – then just as the flash goes off, changing your pose to something crazy or unexpected!

This can be taken next level with some strategically placed drawings on your hands or fingers.Here are some ideas:

THE FRANKENSTEIN
Draw Frankenstein bolts on the backs of your hands.Then as the flash goes off, make your hands into fists, hold them up to the side of your head and pull a zombie face.

THE MO’
Draw a little curly moutstache on the side of your finger and hold it up just under your nose as the flash goes off.

MONSTER TEETH
Draw pointy monster teeth along the side of your finger and hold it up under your top lip as the flash goes off.

If you come up with some more cool photo punking ideas of your own, send us a pic!


HOW TO TAKE PICTURES OF TINY PEOPLE

Here’s how to set up a photo so it looks like you’re holding a tiny version of your bestie in the palm of your hand…

First up you’ll need a good background and lots of space.A big grassy hill is perfect.

Have your photographer face towards the hill.You should be standing closer to the photographer and your bestie should be standing further up the hill.Hold the palm of your hand up, nice and flat, and get the photographer to direct you and your bestie until you have the perfect positioning to look like you’re holding your bestie in your hand.Here are some tips:

#1 – The palm of your hand needs to be perfectly flat:

                     Right!                                                             Wrong!

#2 – The palm of your hand should appear to be touching the other persons feet with no gaps!


                    Right!                                                             Wrong!

Once you’ve nailed those basics you can play around with perspective a bit and come up with all sorts of crazy pics!



HOW TO APPLE PIE A BED

Apple pie-ing is short sheeting a bed – which means that when the person tries to jump into bed, their feet will only go halfway down – hilarious!Here’s how it’s done…

First, take the duvet off the bed and pop it to the side.

Untuck the flat sheet from the end of the bed.Fold it underneath itself so that it’s folded back to about halfway up the bed.

Then tuck it in nice and tight on both sides of the bed.Fold the top of the sheet over nicely so the bed looks perfectly made from the top.

Then pop the duvet back over the bed and smooth it out so the bed looks nice and cozy and inviting. Give the pillows a fluff for extra points.


HOW TO MAKE YOUR BED WHILE YOU’RE STILL IN IT

Everyone knows it’s hard to get up in the morning – you want to maximize your time in bed but there’s heaps to do to get ready in the mornings. Well, now you can cross making your bed off the list before you even get up and here’s how:

While you’re still in bed, fold the duvet back so you can straighten the sheets underneath.Lie very straight, and shake and fluff the sheets out until they’re nice and straight.Then fold your sheet back nicely.Next, fluff out the duvet until it’s nice and straight too.Next comes the tricky part – you need to very carefully slide out the top without messing up your nicely straightened bedding.Once you’re out, give your pillows a quick fluff and you’re done!


HOW TO CLONK YOUR HEAD ON A WALL

This trick is the perfect addition once you’ve mastered the fake trip trick we taught you on W.O.W last week. Start this trick off with a fake trip.

Then, once you’ve finished the trip, stagger towards a wall… just before you walk straight into it, kick it loudly with your foot and bounce back, holding your forehead and moaning.

Practise a few times to get your timing right and make it look convincing, and you’ll have your friends in stitches!


HOW TO PRETEND YOUR WALKING DOWN STAIRS

Here’s a trick to crack people up.All you need is a couch or other long piece of furniture to do this behind, and a little bit of practice, and you’re set!

If you want to convincingly pretend walk down stairs, start behind one end of the couch and walk forward, bending your knees to get a little lower with each step like you’re walking downstairs.The key is to keep your torso straight to make it look realistic – it’s all in the knees!

Once you’ve mastered the downstairs walk, you can branch out and try some new things!If you can get the movement really smooth it’ll look like you’re going down an escalator.You can go straight down like you’re in an elevator (remember to press pretend buttons first for extra points) or even hold a pretend paddle and canoe behind the couch!


HOW TO HANG A SPOON FROM YOUR NOSE

This is a tough trick to master but once you’ve got it you can bust it out at any time and be guaranteed to impress!Here’s how to balance a spoon on your nose…
First you need to breathe on the bowl of the spoon.Then lean your head way back and press the spoon onto your nose.Then very slowly and carefully bring your head down until the spoon is hanging off your nose.
It will take a lot of practice to perfect this one but once you’ve got it it’s a pretty sweet trick!


HOW TO READ YOUR PARENT’S MINDS

Here’s a clever little trick to read your parents’ minds by asking them a few simple questions…

First – ask them to think of a country starting with the letter ‘D’ – they’ll most likely immediately think ‘Denmark’.

Then ask them to take the last letter of that country, and think of an animal starting with that letter – so they’ll take ‘K’ – and come up with ‘kangaroo’.

Last of all, ask them to take the last letter of that animal, and come up with a fruit starting with that letter – so they’ll take ‘O’ – and come up with ‘orange’.

This is where you say – “you’re thinking… orange”.And wow your parents with your amazing mind reading powers!


UPSIDE DOWN WATER PRANK

If you’re sick of setting the table in the same old boring “normal” way, then give this trick a try, and put your water glasses upside down…
Cover a half-filled plastic cup of water with a sheet of thick cardboard.Carefully, but quickly, flip it over and place it on the table – speed matters here!Then slowly and carefully remove the paper by sliding it out from under the glass – and you’re done!Now you can sit back and wait for someone to try and have a drink.


SECRET RUBBER BAND MESSAGES

Here’s a cool way to sent secret messages to your friends – with the help of a rubber band!

You need a fairly thick rubber band (so you have enough room to write) and a marker pen.

Stretch the rubber band out as far as you can (you could try stretching it over something like a book so it stays in place for you to write) and write your message on.

Then when you unstretch the rubber band, you’ll notice that the message can’t be read!

Ping the secret rubber band message in the direction of your friend – and when they stretch it out they’ll be able to read your secret message!


WORLD’S LAMEST MAGIC TRICK THAT IS SOMEHOW STILL AWESOME!

We’ll be honest… this magic trick is kinda lame.But it’s somehow still awesome.And it takes almost no time at all to master and will crack your friends and family up.All you need is a glass of water or milk, and a hat!

Put your glass on the table.Then put your hat down on top of it.Tell your friend that you can make all of the water or milk in the glass disappear without touching the hat.

Wave your hands over the hat – try to make it look magical.Say some magic words.Do whatever you can to make it look convincing.Then tell your friend to take a look – they’ll lift up the hat.

When they lift the hat up – that’s your moment!Grab the glass and drink it down!And you’ve just made all of the contents of the glass disappear without touching the hat!

Kinda lame… but somehow still awesome.


MAKE YOUR DOG CATCH A YAWN

If you’re feeling a bit of school holiday boredom set in, here’s something that could keep you entertained for a while – try and make your dog catch a yawn!

Sit down in front of your dog – open your mouth really wide, and make yawning noises.

Keep going and see if you can make your dog catch a yawn – Mon managed to make Teddy catch one!

Try it with your other pets too, or even with people in your family – yawns can be really contagious!


HOW TO FAKE A TRIP

Use this trick to crack up your friends and family!

Here’s how to fake a trip:
Choose an object that you’re going to trip over – maybe something that someone’s left on the floor like a backpack.Take a couple of steps up to the object you’re going to trip over – pretend you’re not looking or paying attention, then let your right foot catch on the object like you’re giving it a kick.Throw your body forwards and land heavily on your right foot again… Add a couple of extra sways and stumbles as you regather yourself + you’ll have everyone in stitches!


MILKSHAKE PRANK

This is a great prank to pull on your friend next time you’re having milkshakes.

You’ll need a small foil packet of tomato sauce or ketchup (the kind you sometimes get with hot chips), and a spare straw.

When you and your friend are drinking milkshakes, wait until they need to leave for a second. A good moment is if they need to pop off to the bathroom.

You’ll need to drink your own milkshake down super fast.Watch out for brain freeze!

Then, take your ketchup packet, make a small hole in it and put the spare straw into the ketchup packet.

Hide the ketchup packet in your empty milkshake cup and poke the straw through the lid. Switch the ketchup milkshake cup with your friends one and wait for them to come back…

When they take a sip they’ll get a mouthful of tomato sauce!! Eewww!!

Then you should give them their milkshake back – they’ll need to get the tomato sauce taste out of their mouth.


INSTANT HAIRDO

This is a cool trick to snap some funny pics! Give yourself, or one of your mates an instant hairdo… here’s how…

You’ll need two people, one person should have short hair and one should have quite long hair.

Set up two chairs back to back and each person takes a seat.Then the person with long hair should flip their hair over the other person’s head.It may take a bit of styling and arranging to get the right look…

It’s a good idea to have a third person handy to help you with styling, and to be on hand snap a pic of your instant hairdo!Otherwise, use a mirror and try to snap a selfie.


WIGGLE YOUR EARS

Some people have the very cool talent of being able to wiggle their ears. If you are not one of those people… there is still a way to pull that trick off! And here’s how…

You’ll need two sticking plasters and some string.Attach a 15cm length of string to each of your ears using a sticking plaster.



Then tie the other end of the strings together, and attach them to a longer piece of string.Drop the string down the collar of your shirt.



Feed the string all the way down so it hangs out the bottom of your shirt.



Then, pull on the string to show off your amazing ability to wiggle your ears!
