A person turning 30 has just waved farewell to his carefree 20s and entered into a new decade of maturity and responsibility. A prank can be a fun, lighthearted way to mock and celebrate your friend's matured age. Celebrate this milestone by pulling a prank that puts a smile on the face of the person turning 30 as well as the faces of friends and family members helping him celebrate.

Homemade Book

According to Jeffrey Arnett, a professor at the University of Maryland and the author of ''Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road From the Late Teens Through the Twenties," turning 30 has become the new ''threshold age of adulthood." Write your own inspirational, how-to book of practical advice. Call it "People over Thirty Should Not Still Be..." Include tips about no longer shopping in the junior section, romanticising your 20s or wearing miniskirts.

Center of Attention

Host a dinner party where the person turning 30 is undeniably the centre of attention. Have T-shirts made bearing childhood and adolescent photographs of the person turning 30. Ask guests to wear them to the party.

Gag Gift

Nothing says "maturity" quite like a box of crayons and a colouring book. Fill a gift bag with items for children to give someone turning 30. If you want to push the envelope even further, include children's books, a stuffed animal or a balloon.
