Great Magic Trick #2
January 10, 2011 by Alison
If you missed #1 Great magic trick you are in luck. I posted it a bit ago so you can be a cool magical mom!
I love doing these magic tricks because it lets me watch my squirts think and learn.
and kids are already bored from all their Christmas presents!
And in the end there is the ‘coolest mom’ factor. I’ve got them tricked for a few more years.
Now I just have to figure out what will make me still cool when they are teenagers.
So on with the show…er…trick!
The magic question…how do you get the white powder on the spoons turn into colorful swirls like this?
- Baking Soda
- Food Coloring
- Clear cups
- This bullet point is driving me crazy. I’ve deleted it 4 times and I can’t get rid of it. So you don’t need another thing. I just wanted to explain the floating bullet point.
DO this part WITHOUT the kids. This is the secret to the magic. Put a drop of food coloring on the spoon.
Now cover it up with baking soda.
Leaving one spoon with no color under it. Remember this spoon!
Fill 3 of your glasses half way with water and the fourth glass with vinegar.
Then bring in the participants! You’ll be sure to get 100% attendance.
My daughter squelled with delight when the magical powder turned yellow!
They turned them all colors but I held off on the one…until last. It’s got to top the others.
It did! Literally. It topped the glass and then ran over.
OHHH fun times…when colors still easily entertain the kids and me!
