Hey guys. THis is going to be my first kids show. First ill tell you my circumstances, and then what i hope to perform. Please rip this apart as i have no experience in creating a show. Im goingto be doing tricks for kids id say from 7-10, and about 2 14 yr olds. Im sure parents will be watching as well. THis isnt a birthday party for kids, its a surprise party for my neighbor, but i will do a show for the kids of all the parents attending. I am pretty much a card guy, and i dotn want to do too many cards, as i feel as i will bore the kids. So in this temp routine, no cards are listed. Heres what i feel comfortable performing. Dont worry, after i get your feedback i will cut it down to the correct time. Here we go,...heres the list of stuff i am considering doing:
B2 Bomber
Spongeballs
DLItes
2Dollar WIndow
Bite out of Quarter
Crazy Mans Handcuffs
Scotch and SOda
Magic Coloring Book
Peanut Butter and Jelly Illusion
Vanish a silk
Vanish Salt
Magic Mibnts
THree shell game
Matrix

Remember, this is in no specific order. Anyone think these arent appropriate, please let me know. Any help wil lbe apprecuated as this event will occur in about a month. Thanks EVERYONE for your help as i am a noobie at this :D

Out of those tricks you can put on a good show, you aren't going to do all of those are you?
Pick out about five or six of your best. You should always do a warm up prior to the actual show, they will respond quicker and more enthusiastically if you do.
Don't tell them what the trick will specifically do, keep them guessing.
Relax and have as much fun as they are, they can see this.
The heart of any kid show is audience partipitation..David Ginn, and this is true.

I would take out crazy mans hand cuffs if you're doing a show.
