3 Easy Magic Tricks

     Performing magic is great way to meet people or to simply impress your friends. There are some magic tricks that look great to other people but are actually easy to perform. 3 easy magic tricks that you can perform are the Water to Ice trick, the Disappearing Coin trick, and the Magically Burned String trick.

The first trick is very easy to do. It's called Water to Ice. What you will do is pour water into a cup and then dump out a couple ice cubes and no water. People will wonder how the water turned into ice.

For this trick you need a cup that isn't see-through. When no one is looking, you will stuff a sponge in the bottom of the cup. Then put a couple ice cubes on top of the sponge inside the cup. While everyone is watching, pour water into the cup. The sponge will absorb the water so when you turn the cup over all that will pour out will be the ice cubes.

The Disappearing Coin is another easy magic trick. For this trick you will sit at a table and place a coin in front of everyone and say something like I wonder if this will work. Then you will take one of your hands and place it over the coin. With three fingers (don't use your pinky) you will drag the coin across the table making sure you keep your hand and arm parallel to the table. Drag the coin to the edge of the table and let it drop into your lap. Then make it look like you picked it up with your three fingers. As you pick your hand up, rub your fingers together and look surprised like the coin is vanishing. Then turn your hand to the on-lookers and show them your hand is empty.

Magically Burned String is another easy magic trick to perform but it takes a little more time. You have to prepare for this trick by soaking a string in a thick solution of salt water. Make sure there is a lot of salt. Put the string in the salt water and then let it sit for an hour. Take the string out and let it dry. Once the string is dry ask someone to borrow their ring. Tie the string to the ring and then dangle the ring. Take a lighter and burn the string down at the bottom near the ring. The string will burn away but the ring will still be dangling (the salt will stay and it's strong enough to hold the ring). People will be amazed to see the ring still suspended.

Magic tricks are a lot of fun to watch and they're even better to perform. Most people believe magic tricks are too hard to learn but this isn't always true. There are some very easy magic tricks anyone can learn and use. 3 such magic tricks are Water to Ice, Disappearing Coin, and Magically Burned String.
