Hello, I hope you are having a lovely sunny Sunday morning!
Everyone loves magic and just about every child wants to learn a magic trick so here we have an easy trick for any little one to learn. With some patience and practice, your child can stun friends and family with their mind power!
What you Need
A light pencil
A flat table surface
The magician uses mind power to move the pencil along the table.
Hold up the pencil for your audience. Tell them you can move the pencil without even touching it.
Put the pencil on the table in front of you. Have your hands hovering about 20cm above the pencil. Make a big show of using your ‘mind power’ to move the pencil, make it seem difficult at first.
Then softly blow on the pencil (so softly and without making a ‘blowing face’ – do it very, very secretly so no one can tell you are blowing.) The pencil will roll along as if by itself.
Tips for Creating a Diversion
To divert attention away from the fact that you are blowing on the pencil, talk about how you are using your mind to move the pencil and make dramatic ‘concentration’ faces.
Move your hands over the pencil in an ‘abracadabra’ way, to distract from the fact that you are blowing the pencil along with your mouth.
