It’s always fun to have a few tricks up your sleeve. Over the years the boys have learned a few that they like to use to impress younger kids. This one is definitely a classic and one that any kid can learn!
You’ll just need a paper or styrofoam cup. Even better when it’s the one you’ve been drinking out of! This trick is best performed dramatically. Whether it looks like you’re concentrating really hard, are just so magic it’s incredible or making a scene with your amazingness – it’s always more fun when you’re dramatic!
You’ll slowly move your hands away…
And the cup will appear to float in mid air!
The trick is that your thumb is actually in a hole you poked in the cup.
So to perform it convincingly (at least for younger kids) practice in front of a mirror. You’ll need to move the cup around without showing your thumb. It’s quick to learn and fun to do!
