Make a trick magic wand
Make your own fake magic wand to perform an easy disappearing wand trick. The key is in the magician's flourish, watch the video below to see how it works.
What you need:
- 1 x piece of A4 paper
- 1 x black marker pen
- a sheet of newspaper
Lay the paper lengthways in front of you. Measure 2cm from each end. Rule a line at each end.
Colour the centre of the paper black with the marker pen.
Roll it up so that it looks like a magic wand. Tape it or glue it in place.
To perform the trick:
After you have used the 'wand' to perform some other magic tricks tell your audience you will now make your wand disappear.
Lay the wand in the centre of the sheet of newspaper. Roll it up to cover it. Now scrunch up the newspaper (with the wand inside) into a tiny ball. It will look like magic because the audience won't know it was actually a paper wand.
