Harry Potter Magic Tricks

By

Got an aspiring Harry Potter in your midst? A wizard in your virtual Hogwarts? Alright, perhaps there's nothing here to rival a good "Wingardium Leviosa," (we're dealing with the real world, after all). But on this page, you'll find a special collection of easy magic tricks that kids can quickly learn and perform and that use common, everyday objects. Add some glasses and a robe, and you'll have your own mini Harry Potter, Hermione or Ron and Hogwarts.

1. The Levitating Ring

In the Levitating Ring, a finger ring that's resting on a pencil mysteriously levitates on its own. There's some preparation involved, but you should have fun with this one. You can easily replace the pencil with a wizard style magic wand.

2. The Levitating Pencil

In this easy magic trick, you place a pencil into a bottle and it mysteriously levitates on its own. There's some preparation involved, but you should have fun with this one. You can easily replace the pencil with a wizard style magic wand.

3. The Rising Ring

In this easy magic trick, 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.

4. 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.

5. The Magnetic Pencil 2

After showing that a pencil sticks to your hand as you grasp your wrist, you suddenly let go of your "grabbing" hand and the pencil mysteriously stays in place. You can replace the pencil with a wizard-style wand.
