Some time ago, people wondered how David Copperfield managed to seemingly tear a folded dollar in half right in front of people, then unfold it to reveal that it had been completely undamaged. The secret here is making cunning use of a pencil: the latter has been cut in half diagonally and connected with strong magnets! This allows the banknote to be easily passed between the two magnetised halves and remain undamaged.
There's plenty of magic to go around with these easy magic tricks. Whether it be levitating cards and pencils, poking holes in money and fixing them as if they never happened, or bending a spoon there is a trick that you can learn to impress any audience of family or friends. All of these tricks use items that you can find around your house so there's no need to go out and buy anything extra. They're very easy and simple to learn and perform so kids will love them.
