- Put some canned soup in a bag and make spewing noises while you empty the contents of the bag on the floor.

- Play pranks on friends by dragging two campers together that are asleep in their swags and carefully, without waking them, put their arms around each other and take a photo. Works well for the same sex or two people that aren't getting along well.

- Draw curly moustaches on sleeping campers with charcoal.
