I am putting together a routine for my kid show (ages 5-7ish) as my closer (maybe followed by shrinking head illusion as something to remember me by) which goes like this:
Meatball Sponges: A Misers Dream with meatballs (red sponges). I end up pulling out the meatballs from behind my previous assistants' ears/shoes/ect. My premise is that each of them took the meatballs from me while they helped me on stage. Every time I get a ball, I place it in my hand. I end off with saying something along the lines of "These meatballs are too small for me. I need a big one" and with that I open my hand and a giant meatball is there instead of the many small (2 inch) ones.
What I need are suggestions for where to pull the sponges out of the kids. There is the basic "behind your ear", but I was looking for funnier places. Shoes would be good, but I need like 5 places to pull them out of.
Also, anyone have a good (funny) magic word to make meatballs grow?
Meatballs can be found near their Elbows, Under Arms, Shirt Sleeves, Pockets, Hats (If wearing one) or their Noses.
