i have been doing what I call general magic for almost two years. I have been asked by friends and parents of my 7 year old son if I would do a show for their children's birthday. I said I would research this area. So I am new to the children section of the Magic Café.

Any ideas for a 45min / hour show, sort of tricks I should use?

Thank

Carl

I am sure the parents of your 7 year old son would offer you a good testimonial in any case?

I would stick with the routines and effects I was alreday familiar with. That way you can focus on the presentation and managing of the kids without the added stress of new effects as well.

Your 'General' magic you have been doing already is likely to be suitable for 7 year olds. At this age they can usually appreciate more adult oriented magic like card tricks.

If you are looking for new items that appeal to pre-school age I would suggest:

Coloring Book
Run Rabbit Run
Some type of Puppet
Balloon Animals Smile

I'm sure you know this but just in case anyone else was going to do any birthdays I would steer away from any fire effects, the bullet catch, eating razor blades, or any other dangerous magic!

Magically,

Try to get the party length cut to 30 minutes, an hour is a long time for your first party.

Sponge balls
Blando
Sponge bunnies
TT and silk
