Top Five Ways To Get Your Kid Intersted In Magic Tricks - Articles Surfing
I used to mange a magic shop for many years. Quite often parents would come in and say something like, 'I want my kid to learn some magic tricks, but I don't know how to get them interested?'
That's why I have come up with these five ways to gently nudge your kid into learning some magic tricks.
1.Get them a magic kit
For your kids next birthday or for a holiday like Christmas, get them a beginners magic kit. This way they have a variety of tricks that they can learn. When getting your kid a magic kit, make sure that you get one that is specifically for their age. Try to stay away from a magic kit that has a suggested age range of 'ages 8-108' or something like that. Instead look for a kit that is for ages 6-12, or ages 4-6.
2.Take them to a magic show
After your kid sees a live magic show and possibly even helps the magician with a trick, they will be begging you for a magic kit. To find a magic show in your area try checking out your local newspaper, or you could hire one for your kids next birthday. An easy way to find a birthday magician is to do an internet search for 'your city, magic show'.
3.Learn a magic trick yourself
There are tons of easy magic tricks you can learn to do that don't require any special props. If you learn one or two simple magic tricks and show them to your child many times that will spark their interest in magic.
4.Get a book about magic
You can get your kid a book on magic tricks, but I only recommend this for kids that are old enough to read by themselves, or if you are willing to sit with them and learn the tricks with them (family bonding?).
5.Watch a magic show on TV
Right now magic is having a boom in popularity, with people like Criss Angel and David Blaine's TV shows. Watch one of the magic shows on TV and when your kid is amazed by the magic, ask them if they would like to learn a magic trick. If they say, 'yes', then that's a pretty good sign that they are ready for a magic kit or magic book.
Now that you know where to begin, go out and encourage your kid to learn some magic tricks. Did I mention that when a kid learns magic tricks they also get improved self esteem, develop public speaking skills, and much more!
