Ok what i do is my friend takes out a fan and fans my hand that is when I do a trick called snowstorm which is a bunch of snow that magically comes out of my hand. Then my friend has some coils that you throw with your hand that shoot out pretty far, and finally i use a flint flasher that makes a big thing of fire that appears out of my hand.

No, your overdoing it with pointless stuff. Why fire? I know someone who ends with snow storm and then when it's done trips the snow canon. See, that is logical.

I hope you wouldn't be doing that in anyone's house, they wouldn't really like to have to clean up the snow! You would need to get permission first.

Yeah i was thinking about that. Me and my friend have another finale with Dlites which is not messy. So i can ask if they mind the mess. I also thought of bringing something like a vacuum that is non electrical.

A non-electric vacuum? Good luck with that, you might have better luck with a cordless one though.

Well it is not really a vacuum. I can't explain it that well. I have it, it is pretty much a pole with a box at the end that picks up stuff when you go over it.

Try to steer clear of things that makes a mess in someone's house. Plus, why make more things for you to do (clean up).
As far as fire especially if it's a kid show and in someone's house I'd second guess that too. I take it that you have insurance?
There are many other ways to put on a show without those effects. This is if you are talking about doing shows in someone's home.

It gets very much to clean up if you do Snowstorm in China as a finale.

Who is going to clean up if you do Snowstorm in China if you are at a birthday party? You or them?

Don't do anything that has to be cleaned up.

Visual is good, flashy and pointless is not. There is a fine line, and you want to steer towards more entertaining and funny. And stop looking around for stuff that you can use, it should be the other way around. No mess and no fire. Thats stage stuff, not for kids shows. I suggest you pick up a good book and learn more about kids shows. Not all magic is created equally.

I cant imagine what kind of patter will tie all of those random things together.

Fire inside a house is a terrible and extremely dangerous idea.

Snow inside a house is a terrible and messy idea.

Throwing things inside a house is a terrible idea bound to break something or conk someone in the head.

This finale sounds like a bunch of bad ideas strung together without a point. This makes me think you havent really done much reading on the topic. You dont need fire or snow and the only type of coils you should be using are mouth coils. Even if the show weren't indoors this doesnt sound even remotely entertaining.

The best ending/ Finale for a show is to have something original.. something that you made up that is big and hard hitting to an audience member .
