Kids magic tricks can help children tremendously in building their self-confidence. When getting started there are a few rules to remember when performing them. Here are 10 things a true magician must always remember.
- Never tell anyone how a trick is done
- Practise each trick over and over again until you can do it perfectly without mistake every time.
- Keep your audience directly in front of you. Don't let them sit beside or behind you
- Don't repeat a trick in front of the same audience. They are only trying to figure out how the trick works
- Don't tell your audience what you are going to do. It is better to let anticipation and suspense build as you perform your trick. You can however talk to your audience while performing your trick because this will help distract them.
- Use expressions and gestures to enhance your act. For example, you can frown to show you are concentrating hard, or stand still without speaking to gain your audience's attention.
- Make absolutely sure all your props are in perfect working order and look good - no scruffy wands or hats.
- Once you have learned a trick and can perform it, you can alter it. This can be great fun!
- Practise and perfect the story you tell while performing each trick - it's what makes you different from another person who performs the same one.
- Perform against a dark background under a good light.
