trick here can be learned quickly and easily, and can be used to amaze
your friends and family. However, it is very important that
do not do any trick in front of an audience until you can do it
perfectly every time! That's why it is so important to
the magic tricks. And remember, a magician never tells the
secret! So practice, have fun, and then go out and amaze your
|THE TRICK: Remove
a deck of cards and ask an audience member to shuffle them. When they
are finished, take the cards back and place them back in the box. You
the name of
cards one by one before taking them out of the box. They will have no
idea how you were able to know the names of the cards before they came
out of the box.
Before you do this trick, you will need to prepare the card box by cutting
a small "window" in the
bottom corner of the box. This allows you to see which card is about to be removed from
the box! This seems very
simple, but like most good magic tricks, the ones with the simple methods are the
best and this is a GREAT
THE TRICK: Look at the picture
above and remember the drawings on pieces A, B, and C.
draw pictures on your own piece of paper but make it look like the
picture -- two stars and a circle. When you perform
the trick you will tear the paper as shown above. Drop all
pieces into a hat or a paper bag. Now, ask your audience what shape
they want you to bring out without looking in the bag -- a circle or a
star. Because you're a Magician, you can do either one.
THE SECRET: The paper with the
circle has two torn or jagged edges, the
pieces with the stars only have one jagged or torn edge. When
want to pick up a star, feel the edges papers inside the bag with your
fingers, and bring out one of the papers that only has one side torn.
When you want the circle, bring out the piece with two sides
THE TRICK: A
knife magically sticks to your hand!
This is a fun trick to perform at the dinner table! To make a knife appear to stick
to your hand, simply hold your wrist with three fingers of
your other hand while the
index finger secretly presses onto the middle of the knife.
Make sure you don’t use a sharp
knife. A butter knife works
well. Or you can use a pencil or a magic wand!
What other objects could you magically stick to your hand using this method?
|THE TRICK: You ask three different people
to think of a number. Amazingly, a prediction you made
earlier comes true!
the number 1089 on a piece of paper before the performance and seal it in an
envelope. When you are ready to perform, bring out the
envelope and ask three people to think of a number from
one to nine.
Write their three numbers on the back of the envelope. Now reverse the order of the
numbers and subtract the smaller number from the larger
Now reverse this number and add
it to the previous figure.
The final answer will always be 1089! Reveal
prediction to thunderous applause!
example, if the three numbers given are 7, 4, and 9, write
749. By reversing the three numbers, you will get 947.
Whichever one is the lower number, subtract it from the
one. In our example, we will subtract 749 from 947, leaving
with the number 198. Next, reverse the order of this number,
which will give us 891, and add it to the the previous number of 198
(ie. 891 + 198). The answer will be 1089. In fact,
do this trick with any three numbers between 1 and 9, and if you follow
the directions carefully, the answer will always be 1089.
another example -- suppose the three numbers given were 8, 5, and 7.
This gives us 857. Reversing this number gives us
Subtracting smaller number from the larger number (857 minus
gives us 99. When your new number has only two digits, always
the zero in front of it, so it will be 099. Now you reverse
number so it becomes 990, and add it to the 099, which will give you
--- 1089! No matter what three numbers your audience gives
the beginning, you will always correctly predict which number you will
end up on.
to use the zero in the second example for this trick to work every time.

he is thinking of!
SECRET: This is a great trick that will
really amaze your friends. Before the performance, choose a book and
remember the seventh word on page seven. When you are ready to perform
the magic trick, pretend to randomly choose the book from the bookshelf and
hand it to your friend.
