Easy Magic Tricks: The Spoon Bend 2


Here's an easy magic trick with a spoon. We taught a spoon bend a couple of weeks ago. While this version is similar, it's more convincing because spectators can see the tip of the spoon’s handle peeking out above your hand after the spoon is bent.

As before, you grab any spoon, press down on it with your hands and appear to bend the spoon. As your stunned spectators register what you just did, you lift up the spoon and show that it is unbent, just as you found it.

While it looks as if you bent the spoon with your bare hands, you actually haven't harmed the spoon in any way.

If you haven't yet learned the first version of this trick, you may want to study it because you'll be using the same skills and it's easier. You can learn the trick by clicking here.

Materials: A spoon and a nickel.

Secret: It's all in how you hold the spoon and nickel, which we’ll explain.
