So if you’ve never seen this “trick” you can pull it out at the next BBQ, party, or just a time when the kids are bored. It’s really fun for the kids to show off to their friends.

A Quick trick


You just need a can of soda with about 1/2 or a little more poured out

Quick trick


Get a feel for the weight and tip the can on it’s edge. If you have the right amount of liquid it will stand on it’s edge. The trick is making sure there is about 1/2 or less of the liquid left – if there is more than that it won’t work. You can put your hand under it until you get the hang of it – or even do it with water at first, but it really isn’t very hard!

You can make the moment more dramatic by pretending to hold up the can

Go ahead, give it a shot!
