{simple} Magic Trick for Kids

One of the items on our Summer Checklist is "learn a new joke or magic trick".  Magic tricks can be tough for little ones, but this one is really simple and lots of fun.  (It is based on one I found at HowDoesShe.com.)


Here's how my boys used "magic words" to turn clear liquid into a colorful magic potion.


Step 1 - Put a couple drops of food coloring onto spoons.
Step 2 - Cover the food coloring with baking soda.
Step 3 - Fill glasses (half full) of vinegar.
Step 4 - While saying magic words, stir the baking soda into the vinegar.

The kids will love watching the clear liquid turn into a colorful and foamy fountain.

Do you think your little ones would love fooling friends with this simple magic trick?

  1. So fun! Can't wait to try it. I think I may have to do some magic to my kids before I show them how. They will LOVE it! Thanks! Pinning. :)

  2. Learning to do mentalism effects and magic tricks can be one of the most grindingly tedious experiences you will ever have.

    But if you have to spend literally a thousand hours practicing (and another thousand hours sorting through lame YouTube videos posted by 11 year old preteens) to get good, is it really worth it?

    Fortunately, I came across a simple way to start impressing friends and family with mentalism effects and magic tricks right away (instead of six months from now).

    If anyone's interested, this is what helped me:
