Ok, you need to get some sponge balls with differnet shapes. You can put so many things into the Mandrain Box to surprise your young audiences. I wont' put Biscection and Liqual Metal into your list for now. I would add rope routines by Richard Sanders and Goshman's other sponge routine. Kids also like ballons stuff that you can make into different animal shapes. A Sucker Is Born Every Min. is good when you subsitute the price with gums or stickers. I hope this helps. :)

You have plenty now to get started. If done right you can do an hour show with about five tricks. Always always with kids do at least five minutes worth of warm ups to them.
It gets them in the right frame of mind and to do as you want because they now see that if they do it will be fun. Don't just jump into your act!
P&J,coloring book and the joker tube are three that I use and they go over well. Just add two or three more and your set. Have a second show ready also.

That is good advice Sluggo. Also one I forgot to mention on other threads. You need to have a back up show incase something happens. For example your dove flys away right before the show. I had a dove actually lay an egg right before the show in her traveling cage. But I always carry spare doves but if I didnt I would need to have a back up show or just fill in effects.
