More Magic Tricks You Can Do

     Magic is a wonderful hobby for any boy or girl. By learning to present some simple magic tricks, children can gain confidence and poise on their feet.  Of course, they can also have lots of fun! Here are a few magic tricks to get you or your child started. - Thom



    You show a card with one spot on one side and four on the other ... and three on the other side ... and six on the other ... and one one the other ...

    Make a card with two spots on one side and five spots on the other, as shown in the illustration.

   As you hold the card initially, one hand hides the dots on the end of the side with two spots, making it look like there is only one spot. Take the card in your other hand, by the side, hiding the middle spot on the side with five sides. Turn your hand over. It looks like there are four spots.

   Take the card in your other hand, hiding the empty space above the two spots. Turn your hand over, it looks like three spots. Take the card by the side, hiding the empty space on the other side, it looks like six spots


   You tear a sheet of tissue paper (or a piece from a napkin) into several pieces, roll the pieces into a ball, say the magic words, then unroll the ball to show that the paper is whole again.

   Before you begin the trick, take a duplicate piece of paper and roll it into a ball.

   Hide the duplicate ball of paper in your hand as your tear up (or tear down) the other piece of paper. Roll the torn-up pieces in a ball then switch the two balls of paper. Hide the ball of torn-up pieces as you undo the other ball to show that the paper is restored.

“We really appreciated your presence, the lift it gave to the event, and the look of wonder on the faces of the children.”

-- Lois Christofferson

“It was delightful to watch people catching each other with their mouths dropped open and their eyes registering awe, poking each other in the ribs and pointing, slapping their knees in delight and just generally laughing themselves off their seats.”

-- Judy Secor
Huntington Beach, California
