For those of you wanting to do card tricks for kids... I know.... I know... "Card tricks don't go over well with kids..." However I think these 3 cards tricks might actually work... These tricks range from $13-$17 bucks with your 10% penguin discount....
Little Bunnys Card Trick
First is one that I could see you sitting down reading the story with the kids.... All great magic has a story and man does this one have one! You could even then transistion from this trick to a LIVE bunny IF that is your thing... If you have a bunny in your kids show this trick might work for you!

The best by far of the 3 card tricks for kids (even better than cardtoon) is Animated Deck I have done this on first grade kids and they love it! I have worn out this deck I have used it so many times. What makes this deck better than "cardtoon" is at the end of the trick you can show the front and the back of the cards as normal again! Yes you heard me right show the front and back of the cards ALL normal again! Might I suggest you buy a cheap 25 cent little plastic roll up wand. You could show the card normal on both sides at first say: "I need a helper!" everyone will raise there hand yelling out "ME..ME!" you then show that the cards are all normal... Then whip out your cheap give away appearing wand out of no where (wow cool!) ... and have one of the kids wave it at the cards.. then POOF the little guy on the cards appears! you give him a name like Joe tell everyone he is shy.. have everyone say "Hi Joe!" then start talking to Joe tell him what he is gonna do and how he is gonna do it and how he better not fail or make you look bad in front of all these kids!" Then have him shoot out of the cannon! When the trick is done tell the kids Joe has one more trick he can disappear. Then have the child wave the wand over the cards again and the cards are all normal again and Joe is gone. Let the child keep the wand as a gift.
