Peanut butter and Jelly illusion.
Magic Coloring Book - younger audiences because older ones work out how it's done,
Hippity Hop rabbits

This isn't a trick or anything, but I find it handy to have a magic box made out of tape or somthing that you can put down on the floor. Kids have to sit inside the magic box (it has to be quite big). This will keep them from getting to close and them seeing how the trick is done.

:D DW

Here are some I recommend: D'Lites, Sponge Balls, Bubble Gum coils, PB&J, Magic Coloring Book, Crystal Pitcher (pooring milk or liq), Disecto, and the Zombie. These are just a few that play well with kids, there are so many things out that you can get. You want to make sure that the kids will be entertained and that they have a good time... make it fun :-).

Yes, let the doves out, they fly around in a circle and come back to their perch. Right in the middle of the flight one, or more, of the doves CRAPS right on mommy's brand new couch, or the new carpet, or better yet on mommy's new dress, or even on the birthday cake.

Go ahead and use doves. Let us know how it is.

What paddy says is not to far from the truth. Anyone who has worked with doves has similar stories. To really work with them they MUST be highly trained which takes time and dedication. Even then it's a risk but training them VERY WELL, minimizes the risk.
