this trick, you will need a quarter and an envelope. Before you do this
trick, make a little hole on the bottom of the envelope just so that a
quarter can fit through it. Drop the quarter into the envelope. Seal the
envelope and then shake it a few times. Everyone will hear the quarter
moving around. Now hold the envelope up in one hand. Say a few magic words.
Tear the envelope into little pieces and send them flying into the air. (It
will look like the coin disappeared.) Keep the slit closed with your fingers
on your right hand.
this trick you will need a dollar bill. Can you make a dollar bill turn
upside down in four moves? First place it on the table, face up. Fold the
bill in half by moving the right side over to the left. Then fold the top
half down over the bottom half. Now flip the bill over from left to right.
After that open the bill up to find the picture upside down.
you start, youíll need to dip a small cotton ball in some water. Then hide
the cotton behind your left ear. Next, when your friend hands you a quarter,
take it in your right hand and rub it against your left elbow. Say that
youíre doing it to clean off any dirt so that the quarter will be able to
hear you. But what youíre really doing is bending your left arm so that you can
get your hand up behind your ear. No one will see when you take the cotton
ball in your fingers. Now quickly bring the cotton down behind the coin and
hold the quarter in both hands. Itís time to begin talking to the quarter.
Tell it to cry. Then you squeeze the cotton.
You will need a quarter and a piece of paper the size and shape of the quarter. Tell a friend to drop the quarter and the piece of paper at the same time so that the paper and the quarter land together. Does that sound simple? Now you try it! The trick is to put the paper on top of the quarter. The paper will seem to stick to the quarter. If your friends canít figure it out just tell them that!
