1. RUBBER PENCIL
Best for ages 5 and up
What you’ll need: a regular pencil Even the youngest member of your family can get in on the fun with this easy little trick that transforms a regular old pencil into one made of rubber. This trick is a great way for kids to start improving their fine motor skills
2. SPOON BENDING
Best for ages 6 and up
What you’ll need: a metal spoon Take inspiration from the spoon-bending child in the Matrix and watch as your mighty 6-year-old uses all their strength to warp a metal spoon, only to snap it back into its original shape with ease. There are also a few different versions of this trick so they can continue to evolve it as their interest in magic grows.
You will need• A piece of eraser • A dark-colored (not clear) bottle with an opening fit for the wand • A wand that is taller than the bottle (the outer end of the wand should stick out of the bottle)
How to do the trick1. Before the performance, cut the eraser so that it perfectly fits into the mouth of the bottle. 2. Ask a volunteer to examine the bottle is empty, and take it back. (At this moment, you need to slip the eraser without anybody noticing it. This will require practice.) 3. Drop the wand into the bottle. 4. Gently hold the wand and the bottle and turn them upside down slowly. While you perform this, say words of enchantment. 5. Pull on the wand very gently to get the piece of eraser wedged on the opening of the bottle. 6. Remove your hands from the wand. It won’t fall out of the bottle as the eraser acts as a stopper. 7. You can remove the wand by giving it a slight push to release the rubber.
3. PICK A COIN
Best for ages 7 and up
What you’ll need: a handful of coins from different years Pick a coin, any coin, and your kiddo will be able to tell you the exact date listed on that coin.
How to do the trickStep 1: Lay a few coins out on a table, year-side up (start with just three or four to learn, then feel free to add more). Step 2: Tell your audience you can tell the exact date printed on any coin of their choosing. Step 3: Turn your back to the audience and ask your volunteer to pick up a coin. Tell them to memorize the date, keep it in their mind, think of a historical event that happened that year, whatever you can to get them to keep the coin in their hands for as long as possible before placing it back on the table in the exact same spot.
