Everybody loves a good magic trick, especially for children who learn their first magic trick, their excitement can be more entertaining than the trick itself! What better way to spend your Saturday afternoon than watching their new magic show?
To help them on their magical journey, we have complied a list of our favourite 'easy' magic tricks for kids!
1. Rubber Pencil
This is a classic magic trick that even the youngest magicians can perform. By holding a regular pencil down by the eraser and shaking it at just the right speed, it appears to become made of bendable rubber instead of wood.
2. Spoon bending
The trick is all in the way you hold the spoon. You press down on the spoon while sliding your hand along the handle, which gives the illusion of the utensil bending.
3. Disappearing Coin
A basic disappearing coin trick is a great starter to help your child develop the fine motor skills, discipline and confidence needed to perform magic. The trick is to perfect the sleight of hand so that when the coin is left in the magician's hand, the audience doesn't notice.
Your child can fool his friends easily with this old-school magic trick. The only things required for this illusion are a pencil (a pen will do as well) and your child’s hands.
5. Pluck a coin from thin air
This trick requires a bit of set up and practice, but it will totally wow your child’s audience once they have mastered it. Using some basic tape, a twig or piece of safety pin and some books for misdirection, your child will amaze his audience as he makes a coin appear out of thin air!
