Every once in a while something will come along that gets the boys excited and has them trying it over and over again to anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. This is one of those things!
Luckily, all you need is a toothpick and some tape.
Add a small piece of tape to the toothpick
Carefully tape the toothpick to the back of your thumb.
Now here’s where the practice comes in. Do it in front of the mirror a few times before showing anyone so you know how to hold your hand. Do lots of hand movements and distractions to keep their eyes moving. The best magicians know how to get their audience to look where they want them to look!
Hold the toothpick so it looks like you’re holding it in your hands.
Swipe your other hand over it while quickly opening your hand so the toothpick goes to the back. Swiping your other hand draws the eye there instead of on the toothpick.
Show them you don’t have it being careful not to show the back of your hand.
The more dramatic you can be the better!
