Quick trick: Walk through a piece of paperThis is one of those silly tricks kids love to do to impress their family. All you need is a piece of paper and a bit of dramatics (on the presenter’s part). Tell your audience that you can cut a hole in this piece of paper large enough to walk through. Maybe even have an assistant (who hasn’t seen the trick before) try and cut a hole in the paper. Then impress them with this amazing skill.

    I’m always looking for something to put in the travel stash to keep the troupes happy along the way and this fits the bill perfectly! I will link this post on my website http://www.theeducationaltourist.com where I write about traveling with the kids and making the family adventures magical. I would love a shout out from you!
