What are your routines that you do that aren't very pricey for kids shows?

Magicman222, if cost is a concern, buy a decent book, and make your own magic. There's probably 1000's of effects in books out there.

Andy is right, The Coloring Book. I am also thinking maybe a sponge ball routine. Rope or string effects are great too.

Buy Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic, you can get it used at . Hardcover is best. Check your library too.

The coloring book is a great routine.

DenDoWhy mentioned David Ginn's "Cut and Restored Scout Neckerchief" I tried this last year on my Cub pack. I got a great response to the routine. They couldn't believe that I'd cut holes in a cub's neckerchief, however the cub thought that the neckerchief looked "cool" and did not want it restored. David Ginn's material is very usable, and easily adapted to different performing styles.
Sammy Smith's "JUMPING ROPES" is another routine that I use regularly.

I have to agree with the Mark Wilson Course of Magic---for about $17 you get enough stuff to build several acts---you could literally use this book for years before you get through it all. I have a huge number of books---but if I had to pick ONE-- in which to learn alot of magic, It would have to be Marks.--------Cheers!-----Jimeuax Smile

The colouring book is good, except for 1 thing, toy shows are now selling them. Kids cab buy smaller versions of it. I use mine in my colour painting rourine I show it empty, they magic the pictures into the boook, the colours are then removed and they appear on the painting. On Saturday I showed the book empty, said we need to do some magic and a kid went, "No you don't I've got one you just flick through at the top"
I did what I always do when something like that happens I gave her a severe ignoring and carried on and she got caught up in the fun joined in with the others but if she'd carried on it could have caused problems.

Toy shops are selling a bigger range of tricks nowadays so it's a good Idea to check out what's there so similar things don't occur to you.

Clive is right here, - check out the toy stores first. With very few exceptions, cheapness seems to copy cheapness when marketing magic tricks as toys. The only exception I bring to mind is a VERY expensive set of Chinese Sticks I once bought, first run out the Little Darlings told me they had seen Chinese Sticks in Kendals Store, Manchester!!

MAGIC WASHING LINE is just a few silks and a rope, so here's another idea. Although silks are not cheap these days are they? and compared to some older silks I have they float like a lead-weighted balloon!!
