The Workshop runs from 90 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the number of children.
During this time I teach them a dozen tricks.
There is a craft component in this workshop, as they have to make simple props for their tricks.
So where do they keep these precious props?
In a SHOW BAG!! They decorate their show bags with an amazing array of stickers that I bring along, and I also encourage them to write things on their bags like:
I am awesome
My Amazing Magic Bag
I am am a Brilliant Magician
My Magic Secrets
Private… Keep out!
And of course, they all need a magic wand, and they each create their own with an individual flair.
So the workshop is a mixture of watching the tricks performed by me. I reveal all of the tricks. They make all of their props. They practice them on each other. And we practice them as a group. If you could just see their grins when they succeed!
It doesn’t get much better than that:)
