So I’ve been teaching children magic here in India and it’s been an incredibly rewarding experience. Beginners card magic I’ve found the most fun but I also bought some magic props for the younger kids.
This the state of the them after two days. Almost everything broken 🙂
I also forgot just how diverse a subject magic is – you have to learn the physical sleight of hand, have good memory skills, teach them how to present and get them to think about what to say.
The old number trick has been a help in practicing mental arithmetic –
Some of the kids are picking it up very quickly and a good test has been teaching a simple coin or ball vanish –
In issue 2 of the magazine I go into more detail on the card trick they are being taught and the methods I’m using to try and help them improve quickly.
