Ok i've got an idea on a few things i think im gonna get for kid shows.
1) Pb+J Illusion
3) Slush powder
4) Vanishing hank
5) Pen thru dollar (this is a maybe-Not sure if they would like it)
6) Large Magic coloring book (this is a maybe)
I don't have any experience in this type of stuff, but from what i've read in the kid's show forum(before the mod accident...)this is what i would say:
pen through dollar
... great trick, get B-2 bomber... but not for a kids show. are they gonna have a dollar? no. depending on their age, they might not even know the importance of money. i just don't think this will work.
this might scare them... belive it or not... i read that in one of the kids show topics too. seeing somebody's lower half dissapear?!?!? i would be scared if i was five! that, or they'll be totally amazed.
magic coloring book
this is probably better for younger kids. i figured it out when i was 10 or 11. before i got into magic. then again, all the clowns and magicians in my town have it.
if you think i'm wrong, or don't want to listen to me b/c of my lack of experience. feel free to!
hope i helped!
