Learn Easy Magic Tricks for Beginners and Kids


21. The Rising Ring

In The Rising Ring, a ring that's threaded onto a rubberband mysteriously rises on its own accord. This one is super easy and all you need is a rubberband and a ring. There's almost no preparation.

22. Jumping Rubberband

In the Jumping Rubberband a rubber band mysteriously jumps from your pinkie and ring fingers to the first and middle fingers of the same hand and then back again. All you need is a rubberband.

23. Cold as Ice

Defying the laws of physics, in Cold as Ice, you apparently make water instantly freeze. You pour some water into a cup. You utter some secret words and when you turn over the cup, all that comes out is a chunk of ice. This one is super easy with the secret and a little setup.

24. The Clipped Card

In the The Clipped Card you show a spectator five cards and ask them to remember the position of the middle card (queen). You turn around the five cards and ask the spectator to clip the middle card (queen) using a paper clip. Most spectators will clip the middle card. But when you turn the cards around, you show that their paper clip is nowhere near the queen. It's a fun exercise in perception and can act as an introduction to a card trick or an effect where you explain the difference between illusion and reality.

25. The Magnetic Hand

Learn how to perform the Magnetic Hand. In this mysterious and visual trick, you somehow cause several playing cards to adhere to your hand as if it were a magnet. This one takes some preparation ahead of time, but the results are well worth it.

26. Vanishing a Coin

In this easy trick, you make a coin vanish right before spectators' eyes.

27. Dark Magic

Dark Magic is a great trick, a bit of apparent mind reading, to perform at a party. You ask someone to select an item while you're out of the room, tell everyone else which item was selected and leave it in place. When you return, another person goes from object to object touching them in a random order. When the person touches the chosen object, you're able to tell everyone that this is the selected object.

28. Easy Magic for the Dinner Table

If you're seated at a dinner table, here are some easy magic tricks that rely on items that are nearby. You can bend a spoon, make a coin vanish, encourage a knife to pass through a napkin, cause a knife to appear to stick to your hand just as if it were magnetic and more. All of these easy magic tricks are simple to learn and perform once you know the secret and are great for kids and beginners. And best of all, most are impromptu - there's no preparation.

29. The Quick Change Card

In this magic card trick, you quickly change one playing card into another one. It's a fast, visual effect that is accomplished with a gimmick that you make.

30. The Rising Card

In The Rising Card you have a spectator select a card and then lose it in the deck. You rest your first finger on top of the deck and as you lift your finger, the spectator's card mysteriously ascends with it. This should get a rise from spectators.
