Hey there! Welcome to my super secret web page for magic tricks you can learn! Below, you will find links to videos for magic tricks you can learn with a little practice and some common household items. You will also need a deck of cards and a handful of change. Later this month I will add written instructions for several magic tricks that will be featured in my upcoming book, Hey! That’s Magic!
Enjoy amazing your friends and family with these fun tricks and remember – Never Tell the Secret! Magic is more fun for your audience if they don’t know how the trick is done! Oh, yeah. And don’t forget to PRACTICE before you show ANYONE a magic trick!
One more thing. Don’t call these tricks by the names below. The name might give away the secret or tell them what is going to take place before the magic happens. Just say, “I am going to do a trick with these coins.” And then, be awesome! Have fun and SHARE THE MAGIC!
