During the summer holidays, my children and I were fascinated with all sorts of tricks and experiments that we are in a hurry to share with you. They your baby will be able to surprise not only adult viewers, but also their friends. The basis of many tricks are the physical properties of objects, it will be useful to tell children about them.
Focus experiment with a balloon
You need a ball and pieces of paper. The young magician brings the ball to small pieces of paper, and they stick to the surface of the ball.
Secret. At the heart of the focus are the properties of static electricity. The ball must be prepared in advance, namely – to rub on the hair. As a result, the ball receives a negative electric charge, and since pieces of paper have both negative and positive charge, they will be attracted to its surface.
You need a glass of water and a piece of paper. The magician covers a glass of water with a piece of paper, utters a magic spell, puts his palm on the piece of paper, turns the glass over and removes his palm. Water from a glass does not pour out, it is held back by a piece of paper!
Secret. On Earth, all objects are subjected to air pressure. It only seems that it does not weigh anything, in fact, at 1 square meter. see the surface of any object presses the air with a force of 1 kg. The subjects experience pressure not only from above, but also from the sides and from below. Therefore, when we turn the glass, the air is squeezed on it from below with greater force than from above.
Banana cut by the power of thought
You will need a banana, needle and thread. The magician shows the audience a whole banana, even knocking on it with a magic wand so that everyone can make sure that it is whole. Then gently cleans it and it turns out that inside it is already cut into pieces!
Secret. Banana must first prepare. Pierce the rind first in one place so that the thread passes between the rind and the pulp. Then do the next stitch in a circle. We try to stick the needle into the same hole. There will be 4 stitches and as a result the banana should end up in a loop of thread. Then we pull 2 threads simultaneously, and the flesh inside is cut.
Wonderful transformation of water into ice
You will need an opaque cup, sponge or napkins, water and ice. The magician pours water into a mug, utters a spell and turns it over. Ice falls out of the cup, and the water disappears.
Secret. Put a sponge or napkins in the mug and put ice in advance. The water poured into the mug is absorbed by a sponge or napkins and only ice remains.
We hope you and your children will enjoy these tricks!
